WHY ARE WE DOING THIS?
My client, Dr. Mike O’Malley, has written a wonderful book called Cell Hell – 55 Cell Phone Users You’d Like to Silence. In an effort to promote his book, he’s generously agreed to put up the money for this blog contest. Mike is a wonderful guy and he is passionate about using cell phones for good rather than not-so-good.
If you’re looking for a great Christmas stocking stuffer, gag gift, or coffee table book, Cell Hell is it. You can get a preview on his site – the photos and humorous commentary should give you a chuckle. And if you don’t recognize yourself or someone you know … well, you’re not getting out enough.
Note – Books can be shipped in any quantity within the continental U.S. For bulk shipments outside the U.S., please contact Mike.
