Naked draws stares?

After church Justin Thorp took our book to a bakery to sit down and read and he reports getting some weird stares “It is amazing some of the weird looks that you get when your in public reading a book that says Naked Conversations on it.”

Dennis Rice says he was suprised, not by the title, but by the writing inside. He was expecting the slop I dish out daily here on the blog. “Its a great effort gentlemen, and one well worth reading.”

Oh, oh, even David Swanner likes it and he’s a lawyer!

Even worse, it’s required reading in this Delaware classroom.

Brent Nordquist wrote something that looks like a review of our book, but that he says is NOT a review. “My suggestion would be to purchase the book even if you already blog. But once you’re finished, take the book and hand it to someone at your company who could really benefit from it.”

We like that advice! :-)

If you review our book, be sure that we’re reading your blogged reviews. In fact, here’s something fun to do. Write the words “Naked Conversations” on your blog and your post will show up on this page on Technorati. Or, even better, link to our book’s blog, and you’ll show up on this page on Technorati.

Did you know you can do that for any blog or topic? (Yeah, you A-listers can sit down now.) That’s the way you can track how many people talk about you, or link to you.

  1. Do those tin cans on the cover actually look like tin cans on the real book? In the smaller images online I always thought they were either bullets or cigarette butts so I’ve always skipped over it as it didn’t appeal at all to me and only just now viewed a larger image to see what they were.

    Yeah I know don’t judge a book by it’s cover and all that but we all do it..

  3. I have finished the book and I agree that this is the begining of another media source. When TV started way back in the old days, no one knew what an impact it would have. Now, we have the internet for the airwaves and Blogging as the show.

  5. Solution is simple, RobertS: release your book also in eBook format and people will be able to read it in their smartphones! Personally lately I buy most of books only in eBook format, not in paper…

  7. Hi Robert,

    Great job on the book. I just wish it was mandatory reading so people and businesses would better understand the blogosphere. I was going to try and make it out Michael’s party next weekend to get my copy signed but decide to hold off for a out there instead.

    I have been reading the book in public, usually on the elevated train ride home (I am in Chicago). I have gotten a few double takes from other commuters. When I do I just smile and continue to read as if I came across a funny joke within the text of the book.

    Best,
    Frank

  9. I can’t believe I read the whole thing. The droning one-beat writing style made my teeth (almost literally hurt) and I rolled my eyes so much I am near blind. But a good indicator and a good study per Bubble Pychology.
