When I wrote this book, my ultimate goal was to get 500 people to read it and host a party using my party methods.

I don’t really care about Best Seller lists or book sales (although those things help contribute to new readers, which helps me reach my goal).

What I care about is people making new friends as adults. And teaching people how to host a better party.
