A hands-on, practical book that gets down to the details of doing promotion.

Melba Beals says that she first discovered the power of the media when, as a sixteen-year-old, she was one of nine black children who integrated Central High School in Little Rock Arkansas in 1957. She says the experience forced her, among other things, to learn how to deal with the media in a professional manner. In Expose Yourself, she writes as a public relations expert about how to approach the task of achieving publicity. This is a hands-on, practical book that gets down to the details of doing promotion.
