OK, this is shameless promotion, but I’m doing a year-end/holiday push. A few months ago, I published my first ebook on Amazon. It has nothing to do with insurance. It consists of 52 of my favorite quotations, each accompanied by a very short essay on the subject. The idea is that each week of the next year can begin with an inspirational or thought-provoking quotation and some hopefully wise observations about it.

For a video preview of the book, including several quotational excerpts, CLICK HERE.

Here is a list of the topics for each week’s quotation and essay:

Week 1: Coping with adversity
Week 2: Self-pity
Week 3: The ‘good old days’ illusion
Week 4: Time indigestion
Week 5: Carpe diem
Week 6: Tapping your potential

Do you know someone who loves quotations? Do you know someone interested in motivational books? Do you know someone who might appreciate this as a gift because you can’t think of anything else to give them? Are you looking for a unique gift for family, friends, employees, coworkers, customers, etc.? Amazon allows you to gift ebooks or buy and share them electronically…you can even have Amazon send the gift email on a particular day (like Christmas eve).

In addition, the book includes a link to yet another book of 1,500 quotations that includes a section on how to use quotations in your speaking and writing. The PDF download is absolutely free to anyone who buys the “52 Greatest” book. You’ll find the link on a page early in the book and near the end.
