basic, but not a bad overview, for beginners
While it's true that a lot of this information is common sense, as well as available on the ebay help pages, there's definately useful information in here also. Such as specific advice about how to go about communicating with buyers if you're a seller, and many other basic things a beginner might have questions about and needs to be walked through.
There's also a good section about buying collectibles in general, which i found informative.
If you want to get started on ebay, i recommend picking this up at your library, and skimming through it a bit, reading particular parts of the ebay process that interest or puzzle you.

A History of the Past
I am very disappointed in this book. As most of the information in this book is outdated, this book should be selling on ebay as a collectors item. Much of the information that can be considered useful to the current ebay functionality is common sense. That is, the book did not reveal to me anything that a second or third time user of ebay could not have figure out.

Fine in 1999, but outdated
This book was probably very good in its day, but eBay has changed so much since it was published that it really doesn't hit things straight on. It has the basics of buying and selling, and is loaded with cute anecdotes. I've had gotten better information with the updated Dummies books on the subject.
