"I've read a variety of media training books over the years and never found the exact type of training manual with content that I could just hand to a client for their review. That's until I read TJ's media training book. It incorporates most of the media techniques and approaches that I have emphasized with my clients over the years – and goes well beyond that – to help the novice and seasoned business professional alike with interview and media training tips. It really allows the most senior on-camera client to still learn about news interview techniques without insulting them or making them feel like their presentation is faulty or embarrassing. TJ's approach is well-organized and definitely concise so you can easily learn effective interview techniques".
