THE DESIGN SHOULD CLEARLY STATE THAT THIS IS THE SECOND BOOK IN A SERIES. The first book is called “Words That Change Minds”. You will find attached the covers of the first book. This second book, “Words That Change Customers’ Minds” focuses more closely on Sales and Customer Care, whereas the first one focuses on a large variety of fields, from management, sales, and marketing to training and consulting. The design of the cover should be in line with the cover of “Words That Change Minds”, so that a reader who knows the first book should easily realize that there’s a connection between the 2 of them. But of course, the design shouldn’t be identical! Especially since the books’ titles are so similar. So the challenge is to find a creative way to show the connection between the 2 books.
