The “Barking Up The Wrong Tree” Book Is Coming Out. And I Need Your Help.



It’s almost here.

My book, Barking Up The Wrong Tree, is coming out on May 16th. But that’s not why I’m writing…

This is not the “official” announcement. That will be soon and there will be some exclusive supercool bonuses if you’re lovely enough to preorder the book. I’m writing to you today because I need your help…

Since I was a teenager, I always wanted clear answers on what it took to have an awesome life. But I didn’t get them. The things I was told were often confusing, contradictory, or downright wrong. But I didn’t let that stop me. I started digging into academic journals, started calling experts, and started posting on this here website.

For 8 years, my blog Barking Up The Wrong Tree has brought you research-backed answers on how to live a successful life. But I can only cover so much in a weekly blog post. So I figured it was time to roll up my sleeves and get down to brass tacks, to play some serious whack-a-mole with the biggest mistakes the experts say we’re making when it comes to success in life.

The book Barking Up The Wrong Tree will take on the maxims you’ve heard about the good life and give’em the “Mythbusters” treatment: Do nice guys really finish last? Is it what you know or who you know? Do quitters never win and winners never quit? It’s time to give these ideas and others their day in court and get hard answers so you can make smarter choices to get what you want out of life.

But because this is my first book, I need your help getting the word out. Do you have a friend with a big social media following? A buddy with a podcast? Do you work at a media outlet? Any help you can offer is appreciated by yours truly. If you’ve enjoyed the work I’ve been doing, this is your chance to get involved.

Just send me an email here with any ideas you have.

I’m really looking forward to getting this book in your hands and sharing what I’ve learned with you.



PS: The “official” announcement will be coming soon. But, yes, if you preorder now, you will get the exclusive supercool bonus materials. Click here.
