The Obvious Expert is THE BEST BOOK I read this year! It is a must-read (and re-read as a reference guide) for all professionals in business. The investment in this book has paid me back many times over. Elsom Eldridge and his son Mark (along with over 100 contributors) have created an engagingly written masterpiece of a book that is practical, well thought out, and filled with easy to do ideas. In virtually every profession, people must be skilled at selling themselves and their ideas, not just their company's service or products. The Obvious Expert is packed with strategies, tips, and tactics, making this book priceless and valuable for selling yourself and your ideas. So far I have bought over 25 copies to give to my colleagues and friends. They have all agreed...this book is a winner!

What People Say

Nick Temple

In this book, Elsom (with tens of other experts from various industries) gives you a step-by-step plan to becoming a known expert in your field. The methods translate to any field, not just consulting - with specific examples of the techniques in practice from experts in extremely diverse fields.  It breaks each large 'step' into smaller, immediately actionable tasks that you can start using today. With each task, there are specific examples from industry experts on exactly how they used the technique in their own field. At the end of each chapter are exercises to get you started, and additional print and online resources.
One final note: this book, unlike any other book I've found on similar subject matter, is extremely easy and fun to read. Two thumbs up!

The Obvious Expert lays out an easy-to-follow, step-by-step plan that people can use to position themselves as an expert authority on a topic or in a niche market very easily and quickly. I especially like the short supporting stories from over a hundred experts in a variety of fields that lend insight and inspiration into how they used these principles to their benefit in their careers. Highly recommended for entrepreneurs, authors, speakers, sales people, and management alike. Simply brilliant!

I have benefited from learning from Elsom Eldridge for years now. This book is a compilation of his experience from many years of consulting plus many, many individuals that Elsom managed somehow to include in this book. I've heard Elsom speak this material, I've used his techniques to my success and I've seen others benefit directly when they follow the advice in this book.
