Video blog: Getting to know “Sticking Points”

I’ve created a video blog addressing three topics related to my book, Sticking Points, which comes out this week.

1) What makes Sticking Points different from other great books on generations?

2) Will you have any special promotional offers during the book launch?

Enjoy the book and feel free to tell friends about it. Have a great week!
