Real Testimonials from Readers of this Book:
M. Knapp, Amazon reviewer.
Austin Briggs refreshingly delivers upon this promise in a concise, unhindered presentation without any annoying fluff or blustering boasting regrettably too common among many authors trying to sell their how-to book of the day.
I am C, Not X, Amazon reviewer. To be truthful, I have skimmed many books on "how to publish and market new books" and most of them were a waste of time, repeating the same old information. So, I didn't expect much from this book, but was very surprised! This book is wonderful!
