One of the great features of this eBook from the round is the inbuilt interaction. There are plenty of internal links to the other sections (I was particularly impressed by the suggested courses. Each one has an overview of details in an almost spreadsheet format, if you click on one, it takes you to a detailed guide to the activity.) What’s more, the links to web based videos for samples of webinars and as material for the reflective tasks really show some tech savvy components to this eBook.

As someone who has just begun to experience webinars as a guest and about to host my first, this is an invaluable resource. It’s an exhaustive collection of ideas, suggestions and advice, all wrapped up, `tortilla-style’ in cooking metaphors… This is a fairly exhaustive run through of everything possible with webinars and clearly a lot of time and effort has gone into putting this all together. It is incredibly good value and sits nicely on any kindle or kindle-type reader.

If you have never attended a webinar, this book offers you a very simple and clear description of kinds of webinars + example webinars. If you are interested in delivering a webinar, there’s information on platforms, tools and activities. A must-have book if you are new in the webinar world.

  1. Hi there!

    I’ve bought all the titles from The Round bar the one I need the most: ‘Webinars’. It’s not available in Brazil on Amazon. Any other way of getting my hands on it? :(

    Thanks
    Higor.

    1. Hi Higor, you can get Nicky’s book at Smashwords. Here’s the direct link http://www.smashwords.com/books/view/164664
      I think it’s also available now on iBooks and at BarnesandNoble.com

  2. There are also different shapes and sizes to play with.
    The icing smoother, also known as scrapper looks like the oddly shaped useless metal piece or plastic, but makes crisper
    and cleaner icing coat of 90-degree angles. Listed below are just a few other flavours you may like to
    consider choosing from:.

  3. Bought this today and am half way through it – already loving it. Not surprising given the background & the experience of the author – but the book has exceeded my expectations already. A huge thank you – and once again for the great price!
    Highly recommended!
