Book Review: “Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World”

May 21, 2012

A few years ago, I ran across the blog of a guy named Michael Hyatt. His site was about leadership, publishing, social media and productivity. I found him and his content fascinating.

Since then I have written for his blog, pitched a book idea to him, gone on a cruise with him, and most recently, served on the launch team for his amazing new book. It’s for anyone with something to say or sell and it’s called Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World.

To be successful in the market today, you have to have two basic things: a compelling product and a meaningful platform. As an aspiring author, I have discovered this first hand. But the good news is it has never been easier, less expensive, or more possible than right now to build a platform.

“I have watched Michael Hyatt build his own platform from the ground up to become one of the largest in the world. And he has done so with the strategies and tips he outlines in this very practical book. Any author, speaker, or business owner who wants a blueprint for getting the attention and visibility they want, needs to read this book.”  – JOHN C. MAXWELL

Platform is a step-by-step guide with proven strategies, practical tips and easy-to-replicate formulas. Whether you are an author, pastor, public speaker, entrepreneur, musician, or small business owner… developing your platform is critical for your success.

BONUS: To celebrate the launch of the book this week, Michael is giving away $375.98 worth of free bonus content for those who purchase the book between May 21 and May 25. Complete details are available at

Bonuses include: Platform Video Jumpstart Program (six sessions), How to Write a Winning Book Proposal (two e-books and two audio sessions), Why NOW is the Best Time Ever to Be an Author (hour-long video), Digital Versions of Platform (audio and eBook), and more!

Do yourself and your future a favor and get this book today.
