John Boehner Would Have Loved Niccolò Jommelli

"So is it OK for men in the public eye to openly cry? Perhaps more OK than for women in power? Tom Lutz, author of the 1999 book Crying: The Natural and Cultural History of Tears, gets asked these questions whenever someone famous cries in public. In the 18th century, it was not only acceptable, but expected: 'If you didn't cry at the theater or didn't cry at the opera, it meant that you were some kind of lower class boor.'" [Source]

  1. Tom Corson-Knowles, the author who founded Bestseller Ranking Pro, spent six long years trying to get a traditional publishing deal (and failed miserably). He finally decided to self publish his first book on Kindle in February, 2012.

    That one decision changed his life (and the lives of the more than 30,000 authors he's since taught how to write, publish and market their books professionally).

    Just twelve months after self publishing his first book, Tom had his first $12,000+ month from Kindle ebook royalties alone.

    In Bestseller Ranking Pro, Tom will share with you his step-by-step system for becoming a bestselling author.

    These strategies have also helped Tom and his private publishing clients create more than sixty-seven #1 Amazon bestselling books and counting.
