Make Her Chase You is Now a Paperback

I've finally finished making Make Her Chase You into a paperback. I've been selling it as an ebook for the past year and a half or so and refining it and adding to it. After one last edit I finally felt like it was good enough to be put into a permanent format.

I also had a lot of fun laying out the book. I get really into design things like this, so I surrounded myself with books in my RV and figured out how a book is laid out. There's a ton to consider, from gutters and margins to font sizes and chapter pages.

For example... what is the very first page of a book? Take a guess! I would have gotten it wrong.

The Personal MBA by Josh Kaufman - Worth Reading

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

Quick verdict - it's a good book, and I think it's worth reading.

Josh Kaufman sent me a message on Twitter a bit back, asking if I'd like a review copy of his book. Indeed, I would, I replied, and he sent me a digital copy.

Before I review the book, let me tell you how I read - when I get a nonfiction book that I'm not sure if I'm going to read, I "fastread" it. That's me starting to skim and move quickly, then I slow down and read in depth when something catches my eye, and speed up after I finish that section.

I fastread a lot of books. Especially reading a in-depth reference book on a topic you already know, I think you can get 90% of the lessons of a book in 30% of the time by fastreading. I typically fastread historical backgrounds about eras I'm very familiar with, thoughts on an aspect of business I know, introductions to technologies I'm already familiar with, etc.

My first thought when I was reading The Personal MBA was that this would be a good book to fastread.
