Book reviews are a great way for self-publishing authors to gain exposure. After all, how can someone buy your book if he or she doesn’t know it exists? Paired with other elements of your book promotion strategy, requesting reviews is a great way to get people talking about what you’ve written.

When we read good reviews, we definitely like to share them. It gives the author a few (permanent) moments of fame and allows us to let the community know about a great book. Here’s this week’s book review by Midwest Book Review:

Jump-Starting Real Job Creation in America: At No Increase to the National Debt While Achieving a Balanced Annual Federal Budget Within Five Years

Gary R. Patterson

Publisher: Outskirts Press

ISBN: 9781432780586

Reviewer: Richard R. Blake

In “Jump-Starting Real Job Creation in America,” Gary R. Patterson presents a clear and comprehensive analysis of the complex issues facing America’s job market. He introduces the flaws in the job creation principles of both the Democrat and Republican parties in light of their current interpretation of Keynesian consumer-driven demand.
After an in-depth discussion of the issues, difficulties, status, and stance taken by politicians, Democrats and Republicans alike, Patterson demystifies the formidable interrelated economic challenges threatening the country. His analysis includes: Job creation, tax reform, entitlements, eliminating the Annual Trillion Dollar Federal Deficits and balancing the Annual Federal Budget. Once he has defined the problems, Patterson offers common sense, achievable solutions that are financially plausible, actuarially and demographically vindicated.
He explicitly suggests, a private sector job creation initiative that would reduce the financial risk of employers hiring new workers based on creating a sustained jobs creation tax credit.
Patterson’s writing is articulate, well-organized, idealistic, and authoritative with a reader-friendly format with specific topical headings within each chapter that help the reader capture the essence of the following text. His interpretation and communication is written simply, is thought-provoking and analytical in his signature style. There is an even flow and pace of writing, which aids readers in their understanding. Extensive footnotes and multiple tables provide detailed clarification, statistics, comparisons, and source documentation.
Gary R. Patterson provides an update for seasoned experts and students of political science and economics and a workable introduction for less experienced readers in his book “Jump-Starting Real Job Creation in America.”
