  1. Mike, I could not be more pleased for you but I get even more excited when I think of the ripple impact of this book. Thousands maybe even millions of lives will be changed forever as individuals, non-profits and businesses implement the principles of this book and make big wins in every area of industry.

    What an honor to have been a tiny pebble in the avalanche of success of Platform. This recognition is well deserved. Congratulations!

  2. Thank you for writing Platform. Your book is “Wow” and “#1” to me! Congratulations and I pray for continued success in whatever you set to do.

  3. Wow! Congratulations Michaell! I’m thoroughly consuming and heeding the platform building tips you provide in Platform. Thanks for writing this book.

  4. Congratulations!  You have written a book that is already so helpful to many people.

  5. This is tremendous news, Michael. I’m excited for you, for Platform’s influence, for being part of the launch team, and for the other members of the group who played a part!

  6. I’m only through part one of the book…and I cannot digest it fast enough! This book is deserving to be on these lists!

  7. Congratulations.  I am looking forward to getting my copy in the mail soon.  I’m also doing my own book launch on Tuesday, June 19th for Financial Fitness for Beginners, so thanks for inspiring me even more!  You are an inspiration.

  8.  I stumbled across your audiobook and listened to it all in two days (long commutes = plenty of quiet time). Great from a learning/information perspective, but also gets you jacked up to go do something!  Congrats and Thanks,

  9. It has been great to be on the team and see the inner workings of a real book launch. Congrats on making the lists. It’s interesting how each one of them differs.

  10. I have to say I am not surprised!  Congratulations on a job well done.  And I thank you for taking your formula for building a platform, putting it into book form, and then sharing with us.  Incredible opportunity for all who would take the pattern and use in their business.

  11. Congratulations Michael. Well deserved – and thank you again for taking the time to be on our show this past week. I look forward to helping you get the word out about the book this Monday!

  12. Congrats on your success! I’m about three quarters finished listening to your audio book version. (I take you on my run with me.) I’m happy to have bought your book when it counted to get you up there. 

    This is a wonderful, practical book that tells you exactly what to do to get results! Thanks for writing the “social media instruction manual!”

  13. CONGRATS and well deserved Michael!! I read the book and it is everything you said it would be. I am going back through it now and beginning to action on the steps. Thanks for writing this book!

  14. I’m not surprised!  Can’t tell you how much I’ve learned in the last week with the videos and book.  Thanks for the bountiful bundle!

    ROI for time and money totally work it just in the first few chapters! Coming from a mom of four who works full time, commutes an hour to and from work, a motivational storyteller and author building her own platform, and a person who watches EVERY penny and tries to invest it very wisely (paid off almost $150,000 in debt and cash flowed over $30,000 in medical in 3 years).
    CONGRATULATIONS on becoming a bestselling – incredibly deserving. 
    Thank you!

  16. Congratulations — well-deserved recognition for a clear, easy-to-read and immensely useful book.

    It was so easy to read though that I under-valued the content on the first skim. This time I’m reading with a note pad (old school) and pen to write down the recommendations in each chapter — and implement them — before moving on.

  17. Way to go, Michael! I’ve not had a chance to read it yet but I’m sure it deserves all the notability that it’s received. 

    You are a great inspiration! I hope to have my book (currently writing) follow in your footsteps!

    God bless!

  18. Platform is a great book and deserves the accolades it is receiving. It’s greatest impact on me so far is that I’m learning to engage better with my blog readers, Facebook friends and Twitter followers. It’s about connecting, not marketing. Touching lives, not selling a product.

  19. Congratulations.  I had no doubt it would be a best-seller.

    It is chocked-full of good stuff.  Honestly, there’s something to learn on every page of the book.

    I’ve been reading (and listening to the audio version) for the past week.  It’s tough to put down.

    So many great ideas to implement.


  20. Congratulations, Michael!! I hope Platform continues to succeed and make an impact.

    I’m actually scared to start reading it because then I won’t have any excuses. :)

  21. Wow! Congratulations!!! All of your hard work and prayers certainly paid off. I can’t wait to start reading your book.

  22. Got my copy and my bonus material. It’s in my Summer/Fall/Winter/Spring reading pile that’s quickly covering my living room coffee table! But seriously, I know it’s going to be excellent! Blessings on all you do Michael! BTW, loving the podcasts !!

  23. Congratulations!! I am so happy it happened so fast!! So well-deserved!! You live what you write and you give so much to so many of  us —  for FREE each day on your blog!! Loving the book and can’t wait to implement it into my ministry, website and marketing plans. 

    I sense God is going to use this message in more ways than you can even imagine — immeasurably more !!
