A special thanks to all the people who attended our book signing at Barnes & Noble last night. There was much laughter and general hilarity. The B & N manager had to move us slightly since the crowds were getting out of control. Fortunately there was a solid police presence to handle the crowds waiting to get into the store.

We also set a record at the store for "Meet & Greet" sales. We doubled the previous record! Gail's arm was starting to fade from all the signings but she was able to rise to the challenge when the second wave arrived.

The crowd for the 8:30 talk was borderline unruly. Next time we will be sure to have a Breathalyzer test handy. Finally, Joanne has not been reading our blog because she is not in it. So Joanne, now you are in it.

Cheers, Mike


  1. Mike and Gail:
    We enjoyed the Book Signing event last evening and wish you continued success with your leadership initiatives.
    Once Lorraine and I elbowed our way through the store and secured a prized seat up front and center, we were pleased to be regaled with leadership lore.
    I look forward to your missives communicated from an ever increasing array of media and technology sources. Your "stuff" is topical, always interesting, presented clearly and concisely, and loaded with common sense, humility and good humor. Keep up the good work and congrats on your progress to date.
    Best, Marty

  2. Marty, thanks for the kind words. Sorry the crowds were tight. We will work on that for next time.

    Cheers, Mike
