George Paturzo is the artist who designed the cover of my book in 1993. He also illustrated ‘The Godfather’ by Mario Puzo about 20-years before that. Many people said they look similar.  Puzo sold a few more books than Paolo. By about a gazillion.  For many years I’ve been a consultant for executive business presentations. You can see my work website here:



Pustak Mahal is a large publisher in India who bought the international rights to the book.  It features 2-covers.  Used copies can be purchased here:


My book was also published in Russia and other countries.  I’m still looking for the cover published in China – supposedly it was pirated.  I know I never saw any of the royalties.

School’s Out!

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

Paolo’s Sunday School of Speaking is out for the summer. I know, I know   ………. it was only in session for a week – but geez! I’ve got a Xerox Great Presentations! Seminar this week, a speech script to finish, and a new client proposal to pitch – gimme a break. What do you think hookers do on their nights off? They sew! So tomorrow’s post will be a rerun of one of my favorites: “No Lack of Characters”. I know you’ll enjoy it.

Or you can read all the nice things my clients have said about me @ (Cut & Paste into your browser’s Search Box). Most of them are true.


MY Book?

Sunday, February 24th, 2008

Kurt, a good guy from my last Delphi seminar, looked up my book on the internet. Today, almost 15-years after it was originally published, the prices are amazing.


$30.91 + $3.99 shipping for a used copy from someplace in Georgia, to $77.32 + $3.99 shipping for a ‘new’ copy from New Jersey. Over $80 for a copy of MY book? Christ – we could hardly sell the damn thing at $12.95 when it first came out. Can you imagine what it will be worth when I’m dead? I can hardly wait!

I wonder if the expensive books are the ones I signed or the ones bought off bookshop shelves? And I’d sure like to know who’s selling the few NEW ones. To me, that means those dolts didn’t even open the friggin’ things! Maybe they were hoping for the latest Stephen King novel as a gift but got my book instead. “Uh, thanks honey. Just what I always wanted….”
