Yesterday night I deployed a new design for my blog. It was created by Lucas,…
UPDATE June 21: The first winner is Yves Hanoulle! Thank you Yves for writing a review of my book on Amazon.com.
UPDATE June 27: The second winner is Petri Heiramo. Thanks Petri for writing a review of my book on Amazon.co.uk.
UPDATE July 4: The third winner is Franco Martinig. Thanks Franco for writing a review of my book on Software Development Books.
I have seen 23 reviews of the Management 3.0 book so far. I found them on Amazon.com, Amazon.ca, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, Barnes & Noble, GoodReads.com, Software Results, Software Development Books, Optimize, ABC-thinkBIG, and Herding Cats.
The average rating is 4.3 (out of 5), which makes me a happy author. 🙂
However, I would be a very happy author if a few more people published a review of my book.
That’s why I will reward 3 book reviewers with $200 worth of Amazon books.
I know it is important to incentivize behavior (= writing a proper review) and not outcome (= a certain number of words on a web page), therefore I reserve the right to evaluate if a certain text is indeed a proper review. Merely the words “This book is so awesome, I want to make love to it” (though I understand it could be true) does not count as a proper review!
Important: I’m not asking for higher ratings, just more reviews. If you write a text of 300 words describing all the reasons why Management 3.0 must have been written by the son of the devil, your text does count as a valid review! (Hint: I think the word “system” is mentioned in the book 666 times.)
Three times I will randomly select a winner, on June 20, June 27 and July 4. The earlier you publish your review the more often you have a chance to win $200 worth of books (including cost of transport). And if you wrote a review (it doesn't matter where), or if you still intend to do this, then please add a link to this blog post so I know where to find it.
OK, I did my part. Now it’s time for you to start writing… 🙂
p.s. If your book review is among the ones referred to in this post, you don't have to tell me. You automatically have a chance to be a winner in the next 3 weeks.
