Asking peers for “blurbs” for my books always has become an integral piece of my writing process. This is never more true than the current go-round, when the friendly critics have been not-so-gently suggesting that Leadership and Risk is much more accurate and descriptive than the working title I was using. I finally agreed last week and proposed the change to my publisher. They emailed their agreement back within thirty minutes.
I suspect not everyone was enamored with my previous label.
