    White papers are the number one marketing tool, as cited by many studies. But there's one fundamental problem. Most are bad and don't engage time-starved decision makers. Mr. Kantor's book does a great job of pointing out the key elements of crafting white papers for today's reader. What good is a white paper if no one reads it? If you want to create a white paper that gets read, you need to buy this book. Jeff Ogden, President Find New Customers

    I'm a firm believer that white paper design is critical, so when Jonathan Kantor sent me his new book, Crafting White Paper 2.0, I was looking forward to getting some more ideas on how design can be improved. As the subtitle of the book states, the book is about "designing information for today's time and attention-challenged business reader." I absolutely agree with the premise of Jonathan's book: readers are inundated with information, and white papers need to be designed so they can be easily digested. If you haven't considered design to be an important component of your white paper, Jonathan provides some compelling ideas of why and how to do this in his book. And, even if you are convinced that you need to be cognizant of your white paper design, this book provides some useful tips on how what to consider. It's a resource I will certainly return to.

    Crafting White Paper 2.0 is a must-have for any business library--especially if you want to grow business in today's marketplace. Understanding the role white papers play in thought leadership and lead generation is important, because marketers need all the help they can get! Yes, white papers are getting shorter, but in today’s world of abbreviated-attention-span marketing, the definition of a white paper has become muddied. Some companies try to label product briefs, brochures or other marketing materials as white papers, which can be confusing. Jonathan clears the air on this issue by clarifying what a white paper is—and what it is not. He also does a great job of helping the reader understand just how long white papers should be today (as opposed to yesterday’s text-heavy versions) and what they should look like. I highly recommend Crafting White Paper 2.0 as an "A+ Trusted Resource."
