Book Yourself Solid (San Francisco, CA: Wiley, 2010)

This is one of the most inspiring and practical books I have read in a while. If you are in the personal services business, it is must-reading. The subtitle says it all: The Fastest, Easiest, and Most Reliable System for Getting More Clients Than You Can Handle Even if You Hate Marketing and Selling. This book has 81 reviews on Amazon—68 are five stars!

    I am reading it for a second time and getting even more out of it! Truly a “classic” to connect, define your business and give first.

    Those nice blue boxes don’t look as nice on google reader on an iphone, sorry to say…

    Michael, my heart is bigger today because of you. I am honored (and thrilled) by your comments – especially because I’m an avid reader of your blog and recommend it often. Again, thank you.

    Just waiting for the coming weekend so I can immerse myself with this book. Being inspired works best for the things that you love doing and haven’t done yet. Would love to recommend this for the masses!

    Great book. I had a chance to preview the book a few years back before publication. It is very helpful and concise. This is a book that anyone who relies on referrals should read.

    BTW.. you have a typo on Michael’s last name on your post (Porter instead of Port)

      Thanks for catching that, John. Fixed!

    Sounds like a great book. Rarely do you see that amount of feedback with it all being 5 stars.

    Looks promising, but check the ratings again. Lots of 5-star, but 10 4-star and even some 3 and 1-star reviews. I’m actually glad to see that. All 5-star would make me suspicious! I’m going to check this one out.

      Thanks for catching that. I was just looking at the stars themselves. I changed the text to say “This book has 81 reviews on Amazon—68 are five stars!”
