Shelf Esteem

Because a lot of you have emailed and asked, I thought I'd share just a few notes today about how GUST - The "Tale" Wind of Office Politics has been doing.

There have been some wonderful and very flattering blog reviews in the past few days by some highly esteemed professionals:

All three gave their own personal takes on the book and all three gave it a rousing thumbs up, for which I am grateful and honored.  Thanks to each of you!

I have been invited to my next book signing on Friday, July 6, at Beaverdale Books from 6-8 PM as they celebrate their first anniversary in business with a wine and cheese event.  Even if you don't come out to buy a copy of GUST, come out to tell Alice "Congratulations!" on her first year of business.  Starting a bookstore isn't easy, and she has found a wonderful market in the Beaverdale area and is flourishing.

As if all of this isn't exciting enough, Borders in Des Moines has sold out of GUST not once, but twice.  We are starting talks about taking it to other Borders stores outside of the Des Moines area.  Stay tuned for more news about that.

I've been overwhelmed by all of the wonderful feedback I've received from people who have read the book and found it a valuable resource in helping them deal with their office politics situations or have purchased it for or recommended it to a friend who is experiencing office politics challenges.

Thanks for helping to make it a success.

Congrats Tim! Scot really nailed it by saying how difficult it is to be an entertaining writer on such a tough topic. Hey, but I know how gifted you are -- not just from GUST, which I loved -- but from all the great responses you've written on www.officepolitics.com... So memorable, and often hilarious. Thanks for doing a great job!

Delaney Kirk

I'm making book indigestion here and am determined to get to Gust soon. Meanwhile I wanted to add my 'hear, hear' to the voices here. You are quite the narrator, Tim. And I love your site remake, absolutely smashing!

Timothy Johnson

Thanks Shelley... appreciate the accolades... especially from you

Valeria ... your assistance, encouragement, and support have all been invaluable. I couldn't have done it without you!
