You are a fast reader! Thanks for the insightful and fair review. My previous book (Socialnomics) has 135 reviews and I can honestly say this is one of the most helpful I have received! Take pleasure in knowing you were the first of hopefully many to review! Great insight on the introduction - great feedback.

I'm glad you like the quotes and the research.

Best, Erik."

“Steve is very detailed oriented and astute at his ability to analyze content for accuracy and consistency. I have employed Steve throughout my organization by enlisting him in application testing of remote software applications in relation to file editing and transfer actions. Steve continued to provide smart research in areas where having the latest news and external research tools is necessary to maintain a strong competitive and accurate edge on the competition.

I strongly recommend Steve to any organization looking for someone who is very versed in the global news gathering, editing and reporting business environment. He is one person you will find that will ask the questions you haven’t yet thought of asking.”

Steve was such a constant light in the early growth of Keeper Skool blog. His love for the World Game is matched by his deep understanding of creating world class content for the football genre. Steve's work was so detailed and affordable, it helped take my personal blog from being a small niche player with only a couple of hundred daily readers to well over 70,000 unique visitors each and every month. If you are looking for a seasoned veteran in the writing game, I highly recommend Steve.”
