Peak at ‘The Lean Channel : YouTube For Entrepreneurs’ printed book

Hey all, I thought I would share some of photos of the printed copy of ‘The Lean Channel: YouTube for Entrepreneurs‘ book.   As you can see, the book is a high quality print with full color images.

All I did was point out how her chum was dispensing horribly incorrect advice to self-published authors
