(Goodreads Synopsis)



This book was an okay read, but, for me, it didn't really offer anything new that I haven't already read a hundred times over in other books of the same ilk.

I didn't put it down inspired with any new ideas for promoting my books and I would probably only recommend this if it is the first such book you are coming to as there are other, better examples out there.
