So it's good for anyone who has phone fear. Or any social fear.
Critics have called it a shallow pep-talk by an unqualified author but I think it's the best self-help book you're ever going to read.
So, who's wrong, them or me? Well, let me promo it to you.
What's the book about?
It's a guide for anyone who feels nervous about cold-calling busy strangers.
I contend that they have two weaknesses:
1. A childish fear of punishment that doesn't really exist.
2. Guilt that tells them they have to surrender to punishment by the angry strangers they think they are going to disturb.
I just added a new introduction and a new final chapter.
I've had trouble getting my friends to read this future classic but, now, with the two new chapters, it's better than ever so stop resisting and download it here.
How to update an existing copy
Tell me what's wrong
I didn't have an editor so you can do me a favour. Write a short review that tells me where you think I went wrong.
If you write one and send it to me, I'll publish it here. If you post one on Amazon, I'll link to it. If you feel shy, read the first round of reviews. You'll see that anything goes.
More than one critic complained that it isn't funny and they were right. I wish it was but it isn't.
The Critics Roared
"Animal doesn't have the professional credibility to write a book about psychology."
"its strengths are overwhelmed by the chosen plot device and the loose editing."
“Job-Hunting for Pussies”, is what Animal clearly wanted to call this book.. Even at the low, low price of zero dollars for the Kindle edition, this vanity publication is somewhat overpriced."
"When Recruiting Animal sent me his latest ebook, I was expecting to read the same direct, down-to-earth job search advice that I see from him on social media. I imagined job search strategies delivered “Anthony Bourdain-style”. That’s not this book"
You don't need a Kindle
Please note: You don't have to have a Kindle to read this ebook. Just download the Kindle software and you can read it on your PC.
It's a .mobi file and I can read that my Kobo Mini eReader but not my Sony. - Download Kindle software here.
