Keeping the Wolves at Bay
Bernstein takes the readers on a journey that starts "Inside the Minds of Journalists,"
While the author's focus is on the crisis-related applications of media training, he notes that his clients have found the teachings to have improved their ability to communicate with many different types of audiences, from town hall meetings to public hearings to investor events and more. His international training experience has demonstrated that the principles espoused in "Keeping the Wolves at Bay - Media Training" are truly universal.
Reviews have lauded the publication. Richard Levick, Esq., President & CEO of Levick Strategic Communications, says, "Keeping the Wolves at Bay" is an eminently practical guidance for anyone -- business leader, celebrity, politician -- who must willingly or unwillingly face the glare of media attention. It appears at a moment in time when the social media and other digital communications have upped the ante exponentially. Bernstein's practicum on media relations takes on renewed urgency as news, gossip, and opinion now drive public perception virally and at the speed of light."
And popular public relations blogger Joan Stewart, aka The Publicity Hound, writes, "Even if you think you'll never, ever be interviewed by the media, buy this book and read it cover to cover. It isn't a substitute for media training. But it will give you the tools and confidence to go head to head-and possibly even defang-rabid reporters, blood-thirsty bloggers and social networking buffoons who are out to besmirch your good name."
