      It's a good article smile

      A couple of things:

      Have you got permission to use that cartoon? And that quote image? Images must be legal-to-use.

      You don't specifically talk about your book recommendation. If you haven't read it, and so are unable to write a little about why your reader needs that particular book in connection with the topic, you should delete the capsule.

      The format is mostly good but I would change the beginning of the article so that there is a written introduction, with no sub-title. Then the image, with no title, just a caption. Currently, your introduction doesn't tell the reader what the article is about. In fact, the first paragraph leaves them guessing, and possibly thinking that this article isn't what they were looking for.

      Make sure all subsequent sub-titles are short and correctly formatted in title case. The ones at the bottom are a little long and not formatted correctly. They should perhaps be in the body of the capsule as an H3 heading.

      Check your capitalisation. It's a bit random. For example in one of the call-out capsules, you have,

      Talk to many. Listen to Few
      Listen to few. Trust even fewer

      The second few F doesn't need to be in upper case. Personally, I'd delete the second line.

      Your sub-titles are not consistent. Either capitalise them as per APA guidelines, or don't. I said that already, but I'm saying it again as I keep spotting mix-ups.

      Don't use call-outs as sub-titles. We've been told not to, as search engines cannot 'read' them.

      Can't think of anything else.

      Hope that helps.

    I suspect HubPages doesn't like your unusual formatting (the first word of each paragraph in bold). 

    Do you have the legal right to use that cartoon?

    Your Amazon capsule doesn't comply with the rules. I have a Hub about the Basic Rules (it's on the slider on my profile).  Read it to understand the requirements.
