My new book, So Good They Can’t Ignore You: Why Skills Trump Passion in the Quest for Work You Love, will be published in eight days! If you haven’t already pre-ordered the book, sit tight: next week I’ll do the official announcement, which will include some exciting giveaways for people who buy a copy then.
In the meantime, two pieces of pre-pub business…
If You Pre-Ordered the Book, Please Consider Leaving an Amazon Review
This is me in favor asking mode: If you pre-ordered the book from Amazon, and received your copy early, please consider leaving an honest review. I want the people who consider the book during the publication week to encounter some social proof that I’m not a crank.
If you do leave a review, please e-mail me at interesting [at] calnewport.com with the subject line “[Review]” so that I can thank you personally. Feel free to include in your e-mail any questions or comments you had about the book.
I look forward to hearing from you!
If You Have a Platform, I Have a Free Book for You
My publisher has given me a limited number of electronic copies of the book to give away. If you have an online platform (e.g., a blog, a big twitter following) that you think might be interested in my ideas, I want to give you one of these free copies. In exchange, I will ask that you share your honest thoughts about the book with your audience on (or near) the 9/18 publication date.
If you’re interested send me an e-mail at interesting [at] calnewport.com with the subject line “[Platform].” Please include a link to your platform and audience size, just in case I end up with more requests than books!
