It’s about time that readers—and the media, which breathlessly repeats the best-selling claims of these authors—wised up. So let me show you exactly how I became a became a #1 Amazon bestseller for $2 and a photo of my foot in less than five minutes (with screenshots and proof). Hopefully, as my partner Ryan has put it, once you understand how the sausage is made, you won’t want to eat it any more.

5.0 stars He really put his best foot forward on this one
By Amazon Customer on March 3, 2016
At first I thought that this was just a book with a picture of some guy's foot on it. Then I realized that it's not just anyone's foot, it's Brent Underwood's foot. Needless to say, this book is quite a feat. At first I dug in my heels, but then I realized that Brent really toes the line on behalf of all serious writers out there. He really put his best foot forward on this one.
