Jeff Bezo’s Knowledge on Amazon Customer Rating System Deserves a One-Star

After being airlifted from a cruise ship by the Ecuadorean Navy in the Galapagos Islands on New Year’s Day, founder Jeff Bezos, who at the time was suffering a kidney stone attack, sent out an email saying, was airlifted “Galapagos: five stars. Kidney stones: zero stars!”

How nice and cute of Jeff to intimate himself with the average Amazon customers by expressing his feeling with Amazon’s signature product rating system. Anyone with an Amazon account can rate anything sold on Amazon with its star system and post written review or video testimony.

Unfortunately, Jeff got the detail of this star system wrong. Ratings must be in between one star to five stars. Zero star is not allowed on Amazon.

Sorry, Jeff, I will have to give you a one-star on this one!

Learn to Self-Publish Paperbacks and eBooks in 60 Minutes ★ One on One w/ Expert

My name is M. Eigh and I’m a well established author with numerous publication credits, via established commercial outlets and self-publishing. Just Google my name or search my name in Amazon Kindle store and you will get a sense how well-established I am.

I’ve done so many self-publishing for myself and other poeple that I can do it with my eyes closed.

After this one-hour class with me, you will be able to do self-publishing on your own.

For this class to work, you need the following BASIC qualifications:

  • Common office worker level proficiency with Microsoft Word
  • Have used an eReader device before (Kindle, Nook, iPad, etc.)
  • Have an account
  • Able to stay with scheduled program and follow instructions

Please note the following before you bid on this auction:

  • The course will happen at a mutually agreed-upon time
  • Course will be conducted on Skype or GoToMeetings
  • I will email a checklist of simple tasks to the winning bidder. These are very simple tasks such as opening a free Amazon Kindle Direct Publishing account, downloading eBook conversion software etc. In order for the class to be effective, you should complete these simple tasks beforehand.
  • Have a manuscript in Microsoft Word format ready. If you do not have one ready for publishing, you may choose to use a document of yours for testing. The focus of this class is a walk-through on the publishing process, not to get a specific book published. (It is not possible to see a book published in 60 minutes. Most systems takes 12 hours or more.)

And last but not least this is a one-on-one class and only the winning bidder will be accommodated.
