Seeking business leaders to endorse our forthcoming book

As our blog readers know, Scott Allen and I are in the final lap of writing our book, The Virtual Handshake: Opening Doors and Closing Deals with Online Social Networks. The American Management Association will publish it in 2005.

We are actively looking for brand-name CEOs, bestselling writers, and other thought leaders to endorse the book. If you yourself are a brand-name CEO, bestselling writer, or other thought leader, please contact us!

More generally, if you know of someone who would be interested in reviewing a complimentary preview copy of our book, and whose testimonial will help to raise the visibility of our book, we would very much appreciate an introduction to him/her.

Among the people who have already contributed testimonials:

Dr. Ivan Misner
Founder, Business Network International (BNI)

Thomas Power
Founder and Chairman, Ecademy

Michael Tanner
Managing Director, The Chasm Group, LLC

James L. Marciano
Founder of Refer-It, ReturnPath, and TheSquare; Partner, HurryDate

Geoffrey Hyatt
Founder and CEO, Contact Network Corporation

Robert B. Cialdini, Author of Influence: Science and Practice

Andy Nunemaker, CEO, EMSystem

We would greatly appreciate your help.
