Nice Blurb in Art in America

I'm a month late in seeing it, but thanks to a generous soul who pointed it out, I've learned that Art in America ran a very nice blurb about my book in their September issue:
UNEMPLOYED?
Looking to change careers? A new book offers a solution. How to Start and run a Commercial Art Gallery (Allworth Press), penned by New York art dealer and blogger Edward Winkleman, is a soup-to-nuts manual for would-be dealers, and an informative resource for artists or anyone curious about how galleries operate. The lowdown: it helps to lovee art, but you need a business plan.
Many thanks to the editors of AiA!

was gonna buy a copy for myself, but instead bought one for my department; just got it today in the mail. after I read it, I'm thinking of recommending it, or at least sections of it, for our "practicum" class required by all graduating seniors. (signing anon so I don't sound like a kiss ass, but rather like a sincere reader/teacher)

Very exciting news, Ed. Congrats.

Now I'm going to go read my copy of September AiA to see what else I've missed.

I bought the book, read it and enjoyed it, although I do NOT want to start a gallery. I'm an artist and in several galleries already. That's punishment enough --- being a gallerist seems even more troublesome. I have gotten several people to buy your book, or sent it to them, --- those who I think really could gain from it. It is a wonderful contribution to helping others, Edward. It would be nice to see a new wave of creative galleries soon --- perhaps after the crisis --- gallery dealers who are not under the thumb of the Consensus Correct Intnl Curator Club, who have made being a dealer with ones own taste very difficult. Maybe that's hoping for too much.
