Help promote CMI books

Customer reviews

It is quick and very helpful to have positive customer reviews posted on the book’s webpages -- especially on

Short, pithy comments help most: look for the customer reviews tabs - it is very easy to set up an account, if required:

1) rate at 5 stars
2) use an eye catching “comment title”
3) simple, compelling comment
4) qualify yourself as expert

What makes a good review?

Be detailed and specific.

Think of what others will want to know before buying: i.e. the accessible, youthful, practical, high-value nature of the books. Could also mention CMI’s larger goals (building constructive alternatives to the status quo, promoting intercultural activites) and methods (collaborative, cooperative, all-volunteer). Can also respond to other's reviews -- especially if their comments are wrong, misleading, and/or misinformed. Reviews will be posted within 48 hours.

Ideas for other ways to help
