As a self-published, low profile author, this book’s title automatically grabbed my attention. A few years ago I wrote a book but did little to promote it. I read Steve’s book with a highlighter and found myself using most of the pen’s ink! I plan to put into effect much of Steve’s marketing advice and hope to reap the benefits of his knowledge.

He doesn’t have a degree in education, yet his educational resources are used by schools and teachers in every state and over 30 countries.
