Lots of press, very few sales. How do I promote my book to real readers?

I had a book published by Wiley this year (YAY!). It was a labor of love, and I believe it will help A LOT of people, but I am very shy about self-promotion.

I have been asked to determine the value of the manuscript, and sell it. It was inherited by a family friend, who wants rid of it. Aside from contacting rare book people (which I have done/am still doing) do any mefites have ideas on how to get the most for it?? [more inside]

Have a sales process development book or other resource recommendation? Looking for something practical with sample processes and documents, less on theory.
