Another good review for Cheater’s Guide

DMZ · April 30, 2007 at 5:54 pm · Filed Under Off-topic ranting 

Hey, if you haven’t picked up the book already, the latest Sports Weekly’s got a review, and they loved it.

This book offers a complete, well-researched and entertaining look at every single kind of cheating. It offers both a historical perspective and a practical guide for both players and fans who want to learn to cheat or spot cheating.

It goes on for a while.

Wooooo! It’s on page four of the April 25-May 1st issue.

Order the book from Amazon.

    One advantage of people getting driven away: it’ll actually be possible to connect to at peak times such as during games on Felix Day.

    As others have already said, I find the book mentions just a tad frequent, but it’s not something that would drive me away from the site or that I’d even comment about, if not for all the comments made here already.

    If it causes some people to get fed up and leave, I think that’s no problem. There’s not a shortage of readers/contributors at USSM.

    The book just got released. I think he’s allowed to mention it for the first couple of months.

    I’m a long time frequent lurker who just now registered in order to comment on this topic. I don’t mind reading about the book. I like seeing how well it is being received. I haven’t bought mine yet but plan to. Are there any book stores in the area (I’m in Snohomish County) that have signed copies on hand?

    I’ve never thought of DMZ’s pimping as being any even close to advertising. I always felt like he was – sharing the news with us, I guess; letting the beloved USS Mariner community know how things were going with his book, ’cause obviously, we care about how stuff like that is going. And I assumed that we DID care.

    Nicely put.

    I do sales for a living. Funny…my ability to sell is directly related to my ability to market my product and ask for the sale. That’s how it works. Sometimes I have to ask for the sale more then once. Despite my efforts I still have to go ask every prospect to buy…they rarely just happen. If I were Derek, I’d put the link to buy that book on every page, as he really should.

    Those of you who say you dislike sales…quit your job and go live in the woods. Seriously people…there isn’t one of you who cashes a paycheck that isn’t generated by the sales efforts of your employer. What happens when a company’s sales decrease? They fire people!

    Derek(and other authors), your world, run it as you wish. Personally I love reading the other reviews that you provide us. I eat all this stuff up and wouldn’t know where to get it without someone making the effort to tell us about it.

    I bought two books today because of this. The friend I gave it has been reading since lunch time and hasn’t gotten anything done. I guess there is no such thing as bad publicity.
