What They Don't Teach You At Stanford Business School dot com

Hi there,

I believe the best business tips, strategies, techniques and ideas aren't always taught in b-school.

"What They Don't Teach You at Stanford Business School" is a sequel to a book that I did not write. The original book was written by my mentor, Mark McCormack. In 1983, he published, What They Don't Teach You at Harvard Business School which was a NY Times bestseller for over 15 years. His book motivated me to start a business in college called UCMS.

His genius continues to inspire me. Mr. McCormack:

- Started IMG which represents Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, Maria Sharapova, and the world's most famous sports figures.
- Is the original Jerry Maguire - He repped Arnold Palmer, Chris Evert, and took his Yale law degree, his ability to sell and read people to create the sports licensing and representation industry.
- Started the Senior Golf Tour

My book comes out Wednesday 09-09-09. Buy McCormack's book now on Amazon. If you buy it used before 07-07-09, you'll get a certificate for my book.

I blog at Business Week under the same focus, "What They Don't Teach at Business School. I guest post at at GigaOm, Amazon and TechCrunch.
