  1. Never thought I’d learn something so quickly. A friend recommended this book as a place to start learning about press releases. I have never written one, nor did I have any idea how to go about it…so this was a really great investment to give me a first idea of what to do. It’s short, super easy to read and understand, and has effective and simple guidelines. It is very user-friendly for those of us who haven’t gotten a degree in journalism. I do recommend it for anyone wanting a quick reference on writing an effective press release…
