    "I had a chance to go through your book and LOVED IT. What a great tool for both programs and consultants working with programs pursuing a third party endorsement. I really liked the fact that you don't have sit down and read it cover to cover but can select areas to focus on. It also a great guide for programs or individuals confused by the process. I liked all the action plans, professional development plans, etc. It's a fantastic guide to introduce what an endorsement is and means to a program in addition to being a resource tool. Prove It! is an essential tool for any program interested in pursuing a third party endorsement."
