#WorkoutThe original title of my new book was Management 3.0 Workout. It was the result of a long and challenging process in which I learned that readers of my newsletter liked the Management 3.0 brand and also the workout metaphor that I used in many of my articles and chapters.

On Sunday, I uploaded the Kindle Edition of #Workout to Amazon.
On Monday, I notified all my friends on my exclusive mailing list.
On Tuesday, the book already had 26 great reviews and was listed as Best Selling in the Management category, which makes it one of the Hot New Releases.
I’m so happy!
