Three months ago, I released my first book: The Book of Mistakes: 9 Secrets to Creating a Successful Future. Before its publication, I described the experience as a rollercoaster ride with the same mix of emotions ranging from fear to excitement.
Would the book be well-received?
Would you be inspired like I hoped?
I’m pleased to say that the book took off right away, soaring in its first week to the top 25 list of all nonfiction in the United States. Week three saw it hit the Wall Street Journal bestseller list. Over 100 five-star reviews hit Amazon in week one and many others on Goodreads. It has also hit local lists across the country.
Foreign rights requests started immediately with deals reached quickly in languages ranging from Korean to Spanish and even Ukrainian.
Near to my heart is libraries, and the book is in over 200 libraries across the country.
Thank you for your support of the book and its positive message. Only you have the power to determine if your future mimics your past.
Humbling Endorsements & Support
It was gratifying to have so many early endorsements from amazingly talented authors, friends, and personal heroes. They are on the cover of the book and on the book’s website. But it is even more gratifying to receive notes from individuals around the world sharing the book’s impact. That’s why I wrote the book. For you!
Here are just a few comments to show you why I’m so encouraged (from people I had not met previously):
- “Your Book of Mistakes was absolutely the most interesting and thought-provoking book I have ever read.”
- “I have asked my assistant to order 100 copies of the book for my team and expect great conversation on the subject once they enjoy your book. Thanks again for writing a book that will appeal to everyone in every walk of life with lessons of a lifetime!”
- “I could not put your book down. My whole life is now going to change!”
- “One of the best motivational books I have come across.”
These notes are completely unexpected and just amaze me. They are humbling to say the least.
I also want to thank my amazing Book Launch team. They took the book’s message to places I never dreamed of.
And I want to thank the many publications, radio stations, podcasts, blogs, and websites that have featured the book.
