We are pleased to announce that Flawed: Why Perfectionism is a Challenge for Management received first place in the quarterly Firebird Book Awards in the Psychiatry/Psychology category and second place in the Business Motivation/Leadership category.

Here is the press release:


4/15/2024 – Speak Up Talk Radio announced the recent INTERNATIONAL FIREBIRD BOOK AWARDS contest winners. 

One of the winning entries was from Illinois author Greg Chasson, whose book titled (Flawed: Why Perfectionism is a Challenge for Management) won in the Psychiatry/Psychology category.

Authors and publishers worldwide submitted their work to the International Firebird Book Awards. The panel of judges includes 27 individuals with diverse backgrounds and experiences. Two judges from a select panel read and scored each entry. All judges commit to a set of standardized criteria that evaluate the quality of the writing and the production aspects. The judges only award the coveted Firebird to entries with the highest scores.

Authors can view their entry fee for the International Firebird Book Awards as more than just a fee. It’s a tax-deductible donation that supports a noble cause. Patricia J. Rullo, the awards’ founder, explains, “We give back by hand making colorful pillowcases. We send them, along with children’s books, to women and children who are experiencing homelessness. This includes the shelter Enchanted Makeovers, which is a tax-exempt organization. In this way, authors gain notoriety for their work and play a significant role in transforming homeless shelters into bright homes. Winning a book award feels good, but knowing your participation makes a difference feels even better.”

“Speak Up Talk Radio is a gateway to multiple avenues for creative individuals to promote themselves. We provide various opportunities for authors and podcasters to showcase their work and connect with their audience. This includes book awards, podcast awards, radio interviews, audiobook production, and podcasting services.”

The International Firebird Book Awards run quarterly contests so authors can receive timely recognition. Authors of all genres, mainstream, independent, and self-published, are welcome. For additional winning authors, titles, and entry information:

Flawed will be available April 16, 2024. The paperback will be available wherever print books are sold. The e-book will be available through Amazon Kindle and the Kindle Unlimited program for subscribers. The audiobook will be widely available in late spring or early summer 2024.
