    Hi Kevin & Brian,

    I pre ordered this book back in April because I believe in the fundamentals of the ‘old school’ and knew I had to have it. The majority of new marketers don’t see it that way because they’re all chasing the next ‘big shiny object’. You can’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to human emotions and feelings. While most are chasing the next big fad, I love devouring the wisdom from the old greats. I’ve just finished ‘My life in advertising’ by Claude and made my own checklist of notes – priceless! I’m from the UK and Amazon states my book is due in a month, can’t wait!

    I’m not a copywriter but I’m passionate about marketing and have been studying it and all of its components for about 9 years. I once spent 2 years writing a 30 page sales letter to sell a wedding photography package but it’s still sitting on my pc and never seen the light of day because I had a career change. What do you suggest I could do with it, I thought of selling it to wedding photographers but if I never proved it worked first for myself I feel this would be unethical. I would love your suggestions?

    Keep up the good work,

    Moelwyn Hopkins.
