The first edition of the now-classic book, Book Yourself Solid, came out in 2006, after more than a decade of being street-tested and used by private clients of its author, Michael Port.
Since that day, it’s been re-released in four different editions, including a hugely-popular illustrated edition, and has been reprinted and translated more times than we can count.
More than a million small businesses, from advertising agencies, book-keepers, chiropractors and dentists, through travel agencies, insurance brokers, veterinary surgeons and more have read the book and applied its simple systematic principles to building sustainable and profitable businesses.
