    In the Kindle version I read, the information on audio books ends at around 69%. It is then followed by an excerpt from a book Kill Your Blog, which I had no interest in reading. I found this to be very basic information, and the jokes made it seem amateurish. I had already started watching videos on the ACX website, so I knew there was much more to it than what this book suggests, especially if you want to produce quality work.

I had already started watching videos on the ACX website, so I knew there was much more to it than what this book suggests, especially if you want to produce quality work. The one big takeaway I got from this publication is that it gave me hope that, as a new author with a limited budget, I can potentially do the narration and some of the work myself, without having to drop big bucks. I've always wanted to do my own narration anyway. The big question for me is how complicated, time consuming, and/or expensive all the other steps in audioproduction would be. I think this publication is very basic, but it's a good start as long as you are planning to do more research and practice as well.

    I was looking for more info on ACX Good basic information on how to record your own work in Audacity, but I thought they'd give more info on working with ACX. What is in here is good, just not all of what I was looking for.

    Pretty simple I think I was looking for something more in-depth, at the point I am at now, but this is a good, simple way to get started without a lot of investment.

    Poorly written, too basic and under-researched, this book offers a 'vibe' on audiobooks, but not clear advice about technology, the voice, reading strategies and audience. Dreadful.

    Entertaining Material This was a very entertaining and enjoyable way to learn about creating audiobooks. I appreciate the authors sense of humor and it kept me reading. Thank you.

    Great little book I'm a first time audio book publisher and needed a succinct summary of how to do it. This book provided that in a simple, clear and entertain ing way.

    Shirts and simple Basic advise on recording and promotion A good reference for a beginner , but a little random It's worth the free access with Kindle unlimited

    I hated this book, because it is an obvious money-grab by two uninformed indie writers who think they're pulling off their scam. The first half purports to tell you about the audio book market, but holds a page or so of information padded out with tons of sophomoric prattling, jokes, and pop culture references, none of it funny. It seems quite obviously a slap-dash first draft. The second half has a few usable tips on how to use Audacity to record voice.

The first half purports to tell you about the audio book market, but holds a page or so of information padded out with tons of sophomoric prattling, jokes, and pop culture references, none of it funny. It seems quite obviously a slap-dash first draft. The second half has a few usable tips on how to use Audacity to record voice. The problem is that neither author has true audio expertise. Audacity is an amazing tool considering you can download it for free, but no one is going to mistake its output for the refined result you can get from high-end audio editors such as Logic Pro or Adobe Audition. The target the authors set for themselves is to help you produce audio adequate enough that no one will ask you for their money back, which is a far lower bar than offering to help you produce excellent audio narration. There are a TON of missteps an amateur can make in recording, none of which this pamphlet addresses. In short, this title is annoying, incomplete, inexpert, and only a handful of screen captures save it from complete uselessness. Anyone interested in producing his or her own audio book would do much better to pay $37.50 for a one-month subscription to Lynda.com, then take the courses on how to produce audio and use audio editing software. You'll come out the other side knowing twice as much as these guys.

    This book was very helpful in terms of determining what equipment and software is available. It was also helpful in terms of choosing the right platforms and marketing methods for audio books. Recommended for authors that are thinking of entering this medium.
