Dan Pink’s To Sell Is Human Reviewed

Dan Pink - To Sell Is Human - reviewed by Michael GowinA couple weeks ago, I mentioned that I was helping bestselling author Dan Pink promote his new book, To Sell Is Human. You’ll now find my review of TSIH over on the Renovate blog. It’s a good, helpful book and I think you’ll earn a great return on your investment.

Remember: preorder before December 31 and you can get some freebies from Dan.

Get an Amazon Kindle Fire TODAY and Save $50

Today, December 10, Amazon is having a…

…wait for it…

Fire sale!

Maybe they’re trying to clear inventory before the world ends in a few days.

Use the coupon code FIREHD89 when you check out and you can get the $299 device for $249 (that’s $50 off–I passed high school math). Details on this site.

I don’t have a Fire but I do own one of the older Kindle Keyboards (sans 3G) and like it pretty well. Could be a good gift for the constant readers in your life. Just make sure you give to them before December 21.
