The Graduate School Mess by Len Cassuto (Harvard University Press)

Fordham University professor Len Cassuto hired Press Shop to help spread the word about his book The Graduate School Mess: What Caused It and How We Can Fix It. We focused on journalists who cover higher education and secured many highly targeted media hits; new responses keep coming in months after our outreach work with him ended. Cassuto's book sold well, and he's now become the go-to guy for journalists when they cover issues in higher education. He's received too many speaking invitations to accept since the media blitz began. 

Some of our favorite coverage here:
