Profile of Scott Richter
A few excerpts of Spam Kings that deal with Colorado spammer Scott Richter were published today in the business section of the Denver Post. (You can read the piece here.)
The Post asked Richter for his reaction to the book. He told the newspaper that my portrayal was accurate: "Brian didn't paint a bad or good picture of me, and overall I would say the book was 90 percent accurate. I still talk to Brian when he calls."
Richter also added this little zinger: "If I wasn't in this industry, I would have been bored reading this book."
I'll try not to take that comment too personally. Richter has publicly admitted that he doesn't write or spell very well, so my guess is he's bored reading most books.
Richter also used the Post article to put out word that he is looking for someone to ghost write a book about what it takes to succeed in business. (He asked me for the name of my agent a couple months ago.)
