I agree with you that with most books you get a couple of not-mind-blowing tips, as they fall under the Productivity Porn category. I'm hessitant to buy a lot of those books for that same reason, and there are a lot of other ways you can support a content creator.

Thanks for sharing the article. I did not know productive porn was word, but it is worded properly. I would be reluctant to recommend them but there is no denying that those types of ebooks are short in content for value. I would be interested to know about how you would go to support them?

Thanks again for the reply, it made my day. Knowing that at least one person read it and decide to converse about it.

I dont know if there's a perfect solution. A lot of devs have a side project that they could use help with (new features, qa, docs) or have set up a buymeacoffe, stuff like that.

Yep but not every solution you proposed to guarantee a decent amount of money most content creators need for day to day living.

For content creators, it can be one of their goals to create an ebook. I do not mind that. However, some of them are not to the standard.

There is also ebook authors that offer it for free like Flavio (flaviocopes.com/), You-Don't-Know-JavaScript series, Most adequate guide to Functional Programming.

Those are content with great value and free.
