Prior to printing the book, we submitted galley proofs to professionals around the US to read and comment. Here is what they have to say:

“This is a great quick read, and the format is excellent. I particularly like the end-of-chapter reviews, and frequent references to prior chapter lessons. The appendix of verbs, phrases and questions, along with the end-of-chapter checklists, makes this more than a book – it makes it a great reference tool.”
