This is the perfect book to read if you are a thought leader, entrepreneur or business executive who wants to write a business book to build your personal brand, open doors to new opportunities, and leave a legacy of wisdom to future generations.

Mr. Janal’s tone is conversational and down to earth, as he walks the reader through the step by step process of setting up a manuscript and getting down to work to finish the book.
