    Hi Richard,

    As you might be aware, Charlene Li has a new book, “Open Leadership” releasing next month. We noticed that you were kind enough to review “Groundswell” after it's release and we were curious if you were interested in receiving a galley copy of “Open Leadership” in consideration for a review?

    If you would like to receive a galley, in exchange for a review, simply go here: to fill out your shipping information. Once received, we'll get a galley mailed out to you asap.

    Thanks so much for your consideration!
