The Arrival of Facebook in One Hour for Lawyers

Monday, August 27th, 2012

When I got home from work this evening, I found a package that had been delivered today. I opened it and found:

A closer look:

Yes, the new book from Allison Shields and me, Facebook in One Hour for Lawyers, has arrived. For me, my books only really seem real when I get my personal copies in hand.

This book is our “sequel” to LinkedIn in One Hour for Lawyers, which was published earlier this year. In fact, what I mainly remember about the publication of the LinkedIn book was how fast the deadline for the first draft of the Facebook book was approaching.

We’re quite pleased with the way Facebook in One Hour for Lawyers turned out, although we stretch the concept of “in one hour” well past the breaking point. You’ll get a lot of value in this book. I did prove that it is possible to read the main section of this book in one hour, but I’m a really fast reader.

I believe that the book is still technically in the pre-order period and is available with a 15% discount as a pre-order. We’re excited about this book and think you will be, too. If your firm or organization might consider using the book for social media training efforts, let me know and I can put you in touch with our publishing contacts for info about volume discounts. If you might be interested in a review copy (and have an audience that will appreciate the review), let me know. And, of course, don’t forget about LinkedIn in One Hour for Lawyers.

Although, frankly, I expect the only book Allison and I might consider next would be “Resting Up after Writing Two Books in Less Than a Year in One Hour for Lawyers,” I have grown fond of the “in One Hour” format and I think it has a lot of potential. I’ll be the Vice-chair of the ABA Law Practice Management Section’s Publishing Board this year and would be happy to hear any topics for an “in One Hour” book that you know that you would definitely buy.

Here’s a link the ordering page for Facebook in One Hour for Lawyers – I hope you enjoy the book.

Replay of LinkedIn for Lawyers Webinar – November 3

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Allison Shields, Michelle Golden and I presented a webinar on LinkedIn for Lawyers in August. That webinar was so well-attended that on November 3 there will be a replay. The details are available on the ALI-ABA website.

Although the November session will be an audio replay of the August session, we’ll be answering questions from attendees by email after the replay. That will give attendees a great chance to get their LinkedIn questions answered, to the extent that they aren’t answered in the webinar.

I had the benefit of hearing this webinar already and can tell you that the webinar is loaded with great information and practical tips, whether you are a LinkedIn beginner or an experienced user. I learned a lot from Allison and Michelle during the webinar. I also contribute some of my insights and tips from my many years of being on LinkedIn.

Here are the details on the webinar.
