Okay, so you feel like you're the last person on the planet to actually use eBay, or you've looked at eBay and come away overwhelmed. There is help. This computer book will take you by the hand through eBay's website, and then show you the ins and outs of buying and selling. The book is a very detailed guide to eBay's website, which is very helpful because trying to find information on eBay can be frustrating.

As to actually using eBay, the book is naturally far more detailed about selling because there is so much more involved in that side of the transaction. I had some nitpicks about some of the advice, and the book fails to mention several popular services for eBay users (like PayPal and Andale'), but it will give you a good handle on the job of selling through online auctions.
