How to Make Your Advertising Make Money

by John Caples

“I’ve read all of John Caples’ books and although I believe they are all gems, I think this one is his best. Oddly enough, it’s not the first one most people recommend. You have to also read ‘Tested Advertising Methods’ but if you can’t get that in the 4th edition, I’d get this one first
