Recommends it for: insomniacs
For a book that is all about marketing and perception and jazzing up your image, this book was one of the most boring, dry takes on the topic that I've read in a long time. Very academic and non-inspiring. I suggest you skip this and read something a lot more interesting, fun, and helpful -- like something by Seth Godin or Barbara Corcorin.

If you want to distinguish yourself from the rest of every person on this planet and want to build a brand you this book will help build and make it shine. My only suggestion that if they added sources and websites to help you build your brand it would be better.

While I have a problem with viewing everything as an advertisement, this book had a few nuggets of wisdom.

My immediate manager gave me this book to "borrow" and read, said she found it informative. I like the book so far, but my bigger question is why did she give it to ME?

Buku ini memuat tentang 12 Hal yang memuat Self-Branding untuk diri kita sendiri sebagai individu untuk dapat meraih kesuksesan yang antara lain :

1. Orang yang ada di muka cermin itulah satu-satunya tempat anda bersandar. Itu tidak menyedihkan, justru sangat luar biasa!

2. Pelajari pasar dan kompetisinya, tapi jangan mengikuti kebanyakan orang. Temukan gagasan anda yang berbeda
3. Cari sweet spot. Temukan Aset tersem

Read somewhere, that everyone judges you, either you like it or not. So why not direct their judgments to build your own brand? This book gives some ways to build and/or improve your personal branding in business world. I myself believe that good personal branding (and not to forget all those skill improvements and hard works) will help you to develop your career.

I've read several of these advertising "self-help" books, and this is the best by far. Of course, as a rhetorician I love the fact that the book doesn't go very far into its discussion of persuasion without discussing Cicero, and the Shakespeare quotes sprinkled throughout definitely don't hurt.

bagus kok,,,saya yakin bagus.tapi kayanya saya baca bukan di saat yg tepat kali ya.just not into it
I went to her presentation, and she is quite good. It was so helpful, seeing yourself as a brand, and positioning your strengths, FULLY, even at work, not just at the interview or on the resume.

Made me think about what I want others to remember after a job interview. Some sections are more useful that others depending on your line of work.

I you want to make a career inside your company, a must read
If you are an entrepreneur, good book as well, even when they talk about a career move, it gave you insights

If you've been already working in marketing, you don't need this book. All your marketing experience shaped your brand sense.

It was brim-full with useful content, but at the same time, kind of a tedious read.

I like better: "Career Distinction". It is more precise and has a workbook.
