not a great book, but has some insight, worth the listen.
This is a good book if you are looking for a job. As an entrpreneur, there will be a few things that I can utilize but overall not a great book in my opinion.
This book put alot of common sense into perspective. That's just what I needed. And now I can see what I wasn't seeing before.
This book has a lot of useful tips and strategies for emphasizing your strengths tactfully. The book is a great way to get started but if you plan on really using the book, be ready with a pen and paper. To follow the author step by step will take a lot of work and time. However, her approach is easy and effective. I recommend this book.
Ok- I love this book. In concert with Nice girls don't... I think the first two selections in my rental shelf are two of the best business books I've ever "read". I'm already using the tips in this book. Fabulous, realistic tips on how to talk about yourself and your successes to get noticed and promoted.
Humorous and entertaining book on advancing yourself in public.
This is an important book. So many people are content to be a part of the crowd or worse yet, allow others to take credit for their accomplishments. I've always been content to let my work speak for itself. The problem is my work doesn't have much of a vocabulary. Listening to this book reminded me that I have to take responsibilty for becoming my own publicist. Although I think it has great subject matter, the book could have been a little heavier on the details. 4 of 5
Some great ideas mixed with the usual business fluff. Fortunately, the voice intonations help you delineate the two. Well worth the listen, though.
Only about a third of this CD was applicable to my particular situations. And I wish the author had spent more time covering how to brag instead of covering scenarios of what not to do. On a positive note, I do like how she used different voice people to cover different bragging opportunities.
