The January jobs report was no surprise to those of us who are out there every day hustling for work. Yes, the economy has been slowing. I picked that up through my own economic indicator.

This is typical of what I have come to expect from his other books. The book is divided into two main sections; principles and practices.

Crowdsourcing A Book - Not When There's Supposed To Be One Author (that is, one voice)

So, it's predictable that those planning to publish a book will consider having it ghostwritten by several people. The resulting hardcover print book, published by an established publishing house, was a disaster. The problem with crowdsourcing a book on which one author's name is to appear is that there are too many variations in tone, language, perspective, and modes of supporting an assertion.  Crowdsourcing is the new cool.

Speak and Promote Your Book

That got me thinking about how an author can successfully market a book by speaking. You are already considered an expert once you've spent so much time writing a book, no matter what the subject is.

It always surprises me wh en authors choose to read from their books, and it is clear they haven't practiced the reading.
