Get complimentary copy of new book, The Virtual Handshake: Opening Doors and Closing Deals Online

I’ve been quiet on this blog for the last month, because we’ve been completing a major redesign.

I’d welcome feedback on the completely redesigned site,, courtesy of Jason Coward at OpenGeek.

In separate news:

 Are you interested in reading a preview copy of my forthcoming book, The Virtual Handshake: Opening Doors and Closing Deals Online?

If you write for a major newspaper, magazine, or other media vehicle…or if you run a blog with a significant readership…or even if you would just like to write a note about the book in your in-house corporate newsletter…then I would be happy to send you a copy.

 Or perhaps you know someone in the media who would be interested in the book? I’d be very grateful for an introduction! This will be the first mass market book about how people can become dramatically more successful by leveraging online networks: find a new job, new clients, or new business partners.

 More technically, this is the first mass market book about “social software“: blogs, social networking sites, relationship capital management software, and so on.

 The CEOs of many of the leading companies in this industry have already raved about the book, including the CEOs of, Best Software, Ecademy, Cvent, Contact Network, and Ryze…not to mention Craig Newmark (founder of craigslist), Bob Cialdini (bestselling author of Influence), and Ivan Misner (Business Network International), among many others. My coauthor Scott Allen and I have submitted the 99.9%-final version of the book to our publisher, the American Management Association, and are now seeking reviewers.
