Idols of History, Interview #1

Hello All–

I recently started a publicity campaign for the first volume of my Idols of History set.  I will be posting as many interview clips as I can get my hands on here, and would love it if you reposted, retweeted, or otherwise got the word out.

This interview, which I had yesterday with Daniel French, was a doozy–Mr. French is a fantastic interviewer, and I really appreciated that he had taken the time to look at my book, and set me up with great questions

In addition, I made a book trailer, which I would love if you shared

Thanks and Best Regards,

THE GREAT BOOKS DUDE!
