it was ok
bookshelves: business

I had high hopes for this book, and I was left disappointed. Instead of going in-depth with tools and tricks to brand yourself and your work (which is what I thought this book would cover at some point) it is filled with anecdotal stories that may be inspiring to a salesperson or someone who actually makes pitches as a regular part of their career. There was little useful information, and nothing that triggered an "a-ha!" moment. It didn't meet my needs or expectations.
