    Rate My Book Cover

    My thoughts: is it specific to one sport? Football or track and field? Also ... maybe you take out the 40-yards reference in the title. It may turn off people who may be interested in becoming fast but have no interest in the 40. If you're super focused on the 40-yard speed in the book, then...

    Rate My Book Cover

    I like your point about the niche. Is this book targeting one sport? Football or track and field? Or Both? If it's one or another maybe incorporate that into the design. My other thought: is the book stritkly for the 40-yard dash?

    Check out Stephen Shiffman's book on cold calling. Short and easy read. Worth it. A guy by the name of Jeb Blount has written some books on the topic. I think his stuff is good, although I have not head any of his books.

    Doesn't matter how old you are, if you're a mature male, give your opinion!

    Not gonna lie I wasn't too excited about this when I read your post. Doesn't Facebook do the exact same thing? Also, it seems like a long road to hoe before you actually turn a profit, which, other than adding value to people's life is the reason for stating a business. Just my two cents ...

    Does my Odd Idea have Any Potential?

    Good stuff. One idea I had is to set up a guided tour somehow. I think a lot of people would be fascinated with the history and science behind it.
