With the launch of Visualize This, July was a fun month. On the day of the announcement, the book broke the Amazon overall top 100, which felt crazy to me. Of course, the dust has settled, but it’s still been doing well, and I’ve been happy to hear that so many of you have found it useful. Thanks again.
