The Skinny On...

Quicky Advice in an Internet Age
Jim Randel, a 25-year real estate entrepreneur, moved into the publishing world in 2009. Since then, he has released 10 books (his publishing company is based in Westport, CT) and all of them share a lead-in title : "The Skinny On..."

Randel's titles are of the self-help variety and the advice given/stories told are conveyed using short prose and stick people drawings. Your library owns four titles in "The Skinny On" series, all of which have caught their fair share of buzz, both decidedly very pro and very con.

Randel was recently interviewed on WTNH's Good Morning CT program and offered very interesting commentary about how people read.
