PRAISE FOR DAVID HENDERSON
"Public relations is never as easy as it looks. So you are lucky to be reading this book, for few know PR as well as David Henderson. A skilled correspondent and a gifted man, David knows both sides of the process of delivering a message."
"David Henderson has worked both sides of the street-as a reporter and an advocate. He has that double advantage of knowing a story and knowing how to sell it."
