In this book, he provides an easy to understand approach to self-promotion and debunks a few urban myths about marketing. One of his key points is to have a marketing strategy so that you don't get bogged down in marketing tactics - know the big picture and don't get lost in the details. He reminds us that you can do it yourself and that you don't need to ask anybody for permission to talk about your work.
He rounds the book out with stories from his own journey.
