I heard about this book on a podcast I listen to and I actually frequent the authors (Andrew Youderian) blog on a regular basis, so I figured I would give ANOTHER drop shipping book a try. I've actually read a bunch of books on drop shipping over the past couple months as I'm looking to finally start by own online business. All the books on drop shipping are one of the following: a very inexpensive ebook ($1-$3 dollars) that barely scratches the surface of this complex industry and provides no value. Truly a waste of time. Or a more expensive print book that is either outdated, focuses on eBay too much, or is filled with useless non-actionable information.
Surprisingly this book isn't either of those. This one goes in detail on every little aspect you need to know. But what really sets this apart from the rest is chapter 3 and chapter 4, in my opinion. Chapter 3 is about finding and working with suppliers.. it's not as easy as simply going to DOBA or WWB as some might say. And Chapter 4 which is the best "how to pick a product" section I have seen yet because they go step-by-step using free tools like Google trends, Google keyword and others.
Best book on drop shipping yet
Best advice on how to find a supplier
Best advice on how to find a PRODUCT
No case studies
Not enough resources in my opinion. That is to say they have lists throughout the book on resources, drop shipping directories and others, but they are not very comprehensive.
WHY do they keep writing dropshipping and dropship instead of drop shipping? It is two words, not one. Small detail though.
Best book I have read yet and I have read many. Definitely give this one a shot.
