About the re-write:
“In 2010 the decision was made to begin a complete rewrite of Fast Forward. Along with my trusted editor, Mara Dresner, we began to identify what portions of the original Fast Forward had to go and what was heading for a rewrite. Not one page of the original Fast Forward would transition “as is” to the new Second Edition. Why rewrite perfectly good content? The answer is simple and has everything to do with writing style. Fast Forward was my first book. (I’m on book number three now.) I’ve written volumes of work since 2000. My writing voice and style is more refined. Terminology has changed. Industry segments, such as the medspa, didn’t exist when I first wrote Fast Forward. More importantly, my expertise and experience has grown. Strategies has grown and evolved, too. (In 2013, Strategies celebrated 20 years in business.) A complete rewrite of Fast Forward was the no-compromise way to publish the Second Edition of a great book.” — Neil Ducoff
