Editorial Reviews

Louis Columbus
5-star review: From the plain-spoken writing style of David Henderson to the rich insights he freely shares, this book is exceptional in the value it delivers in the area of communications.
Bottom line: From the candid criticisms and insights he delivers regarding journalism, marketing communications, and public relations to the prescriptive guidance shared, this book is one that can make you a better manager not only of your companies communications' strategies but your own as well.
David Meerman Scott
..is terrific because David Henderson has been a success both as a journalist and as a media-relations practitioner.
If you are in media relations or corporate communications you got to read this book. Now. If you’re a CEO who wants to influence the media the way Steve Jobs does at Apple it is a must read. I found the discussions on how and why it is essential to take media relations in-house and not trust your reputation to a bloated PR agency to be absolutely esential information.
Steve Kayser
Though targeted at Business Executives and focused on how-to-deal professionally with the Media, it is in fact, a book...should be mandatory reading in high schools and colleges.
The lessons in this book are culled from Henderson's years of experience as an Emmy Award-winning former CBS Network News correspondent. Told in a true storytelling style they detail a journey of dealing and working with world-wide luminaries like Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite, Mark Cuban, Steve Jobs & Bob Schieffer
Richard R. Blake
Henderson begins the book with an insider’s perspective on up-to-the-minute ways leaders are made and become recognized in today’s competitive media world. He stresses the importance of strategic positioning, reputation, and image management which create clear messages that produces influence. He offers the reader insight into the distinctive techniques which make news. Henderson communicates clearly with charismatic excitement with persuasiveness.
Eric Mondschein
