The true test of a how-to book is whether or not you get the desired results. Well I can say that I wanted to create my own podcast and after reading this book, I did.I am not the most computer savvy, but I'm also not an idiot (at least if you ask the right folks). Like many, I use the computer extensively all day and know the majority of popular programs. But when it comes to HTML, websites, and behind the curtain stuff, forget it. So, when I set out to create my own podcast, I was a bit intimidated. This book put me at ease.One thing I will say is this: READ IT! Don't be one of those that just flips to the parts you think you need. This book is better if you really read it cover to cover. The only section I didn't read was the part on video podcasts because I wasn't doing one. But read everything else.It takes you through step by step and outlines most of the options for podcasters. How to record, edit, post and maintain your cast. It has great recommendations on which services to use (I have been extremely pleased with Liberated Syndication as my host). The authors are funny, knowledgable and had tons of inside information on podcasting. They even included case studies from famous podcasters and the trouble they went through to make podcasting what it is today.The only thing that I would say you need to avoid in this book is the section on cleaning up your files. I started out following their advice to the letter. But, with each episode I did more and more experimentation with my sound. Here is the startling truth about what I discovered: you don't need to do most of what they tell you to do. If you get a decent recording set-up, you don't have to do all that editing.
