A lot of people email me to help. It is time consuming to explain to each individual how to do the book/DVD summary so here is an explanation for everybody who wants to help.

What I am looking for is something like this for books and something like this for DVDs. However, if I don't own the book or don't have time to write a detailed summary, I often write a very brief one like this where the description is based on summaries I read and previews of the book.

It is important to note that these are summaries and not reviews. Please refrain from giving an appreciation of the book or the DVD.

Also avoid quoting the book as a summary. I cannot put something only made up of excerpts from the book on the Forum.

Please do not post the summary thread yourself. I will put a note saying you wrote the summary. If you post it yourself I cannot do any changes to the thread later on and that is not as helpful.

Before you go ahead and write a summary, post on this thread saying which book you want to do and wait for me to acknowledge.

Include the amazon's affiliate stuff. Here is an explanation from Paul on how to do it.

Lastly, here is the forum "code" for folks who want to write summaries. To find relevant threads and videos take time, so I would appreciate if you could do that section as well.

Thanks to all the volunteer.
