For All Points-Of-The-View.
Kali Akuno: As you may know, my new book, Jackson Rising: the Struggle for Economic Democracy and Black Self-Determination in Jackson, Mississippi, is coming out in October 2017, and I'm reaching out to ask if you might kindly leave a rating and a statement of support in the form of an "Amazon review." View the mock of the book here: http://www.cooperationjackson.org/announcementsblog/2017/9/21/new-b....
While there is no better formula for readership than the book speaking for itself, I'm told that a healthy amount of reviews on the book's Amazon page incentivizes prospective readers to buy it, as well as helps feed Amazon's algorithm for positioning and promotion on their website. I realize it's impossible to give a proper critique without reading the book, but if you could offer some words of encouragement based on what you know about me, Cooperation Jackson, and the work that we do, that would go a very long way.
I've pasted below a summary of the book, which might also help, and I'm happy to send you a PDF copy of the manuscript if you're interested in previewing it on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. I would be so grateful if you could take a few minutes of your valuable time to do this over the next few weeks before the book releases.
If you have any questions about how to leave a review on Amazon, please consult: https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/customer/display.html?nodeId=201145120.
If you choose to write a review, please let us know by sending us a copy of it at CooperationJackson@gmail.com. Thank you for your time and consideration!
