Nor was it because the book was boring — it definitely isn’t. And it didn’t take me so long because Jackson’s writing is obtuse or difficult to […]

Book Review: e-Riches 2.0 by Scott Fox

Normally, I don’t win things when there are drawings for prizes. The day I attended the Technology Council of Southern California for a seminar on Internet Marketing was an exception.
