David Soskin’s primer about how to start and run a digital business is comprehensive, which is both his book’s strength and its weakness. At times, the book becomes a choppy laundry list of do’s and don’ts, but Soskin’s citation of case studies of Internet successes and failures, and his tales of running the UK online company Cheapflights Media, will hold your interest. Soskin, a web entrepreneur, begins with the birth of the Internet. He explains various business models, marketing platforms and best business practices.
