Please Vote on a Commanding Attention Cover

Please Vote on a Commanding Attention Cover
I have finally finished the e-book.  I hope to upload it to Amazon within the next 2-3 weeks. Once I choose the cover art, and I get my "back of the book blurb" and promo materials in place, I am good to go.

I have narrowed it down to three possible covers.  I would really be indebted to you guys if you could email me or vote (in the comment section) to let me which one of the covers, #1, #2, or #3, you like the best and why.  My email is tessmesser@gmail.com.

It has six sections and covers everything from the behavioral therapies to a section on new and emerging therapies.  I ended up with 300 pages and almost 500 references. I have included the table of contents at the bottom of this post so you can get an idea of the scope of the book.

I will be offering the book free, as a promotion, through Kindle's Select Program.  I will let you guys know when it goes live and the days that you can get the book for free. 

 Having a very poor sense of time, which regular readers of this blog will recognize as an ADHD symptom, a book that I thought would take me a few months, has taken me almost two years.  I thought I was almost done many times....

Thank for taking the time to give me your thoughts!!
