News & Opinion: The 100 Best Update
It has been three weeks since The 100 Best Business Books of All Time launched and I just wanted to write you a note and thank you for all of your support.
Twitter has been a-flitter with tweets: http://tinyurl.com/cm9pvp
There are 31,000 hits in Google now with most of them written by all of you: http://tinyurl.com/bnuaxz
The book has been covered by BusinessWeek, NPR Marketplace, and CNBC while we have written pieces for Harvard Business Review and Fortune. We have the whole list here: http://100bestbiz.com/media/
We are going to keep posting things about The 100 Best from time to time, but if you would to keep getting formal updates about The 100 Best, join our mailing list (under the book cover) at http://100bestbiz.com/
But I have one request before I go.
If you have purchased a copy, find three people to share The 100 Best with. Help us find an even better audience for the book.
If you have not purchased the book, Jack and I hope you will. We wrote The 100 Best so people could spend less time figuring out what to read and more time actually reading.
Here are some of the wonderful places you can buy The 100 Best: http://100bestbiz.com/the-100-best-store/
Thanks again for all of our support for 800-CEO-READ as well as The 100 Best,
PS In addition to the 100 best books, our book recommends 295 other books that are worth checking out. Typo is one of those books and its publisher Soft Skull Press is offering a free pdf download for the next seven days. Enjoy!
