  • We hired Big Fish Media to help us get top national coverage for our analysis of health industry cost issues and for our book, Why Nobody Believes the Numbers. Within weeks we were meeting with reporters and editors at Reuters, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and the Harvard Business Review resulting in major print and online coverage. Herb Schaffner and his team get results.

    Congrats to our client Norm Champ, whose new book GOING PUBLIC: MY ADVENTURES INSIDE THE SEC AND HOW TO PREVENT THE NEXT DEVASTATING CRISIS is getting great media coverage--recently profiled in The Atlantic, The Financial Times, and many business publications. Yesterday was the best yet: The Wall Street Journal called it "eye opening" and a "timely reminder." What a fascinating journey it was for us to work on this book. Kudos to Norm!
