The art of Brag is an essential tool. It needs to be taught early as a foundational skill in schools to build and reinforce confidence and self-esteem. As the parent of a teenager looking for her first job it is difficult to convince my daughter that her life experiences as a babysitter, summer camp counselor in training and mentor to a struggling student in an ESL program, makes her a valuable employment candidate for a 'real' job. I hope that by re-framing her volunteer positions into brag bites and bragologues she can appreciate her worthy-ness and develop a skill that will serve her well over a lifetime!

Smart! Just really plain smart. Every person who has a job and wants to get ahead should read Peggy's book. Well laid out. Well written. A fun read as well as professionally necessary to your career.
Highly recommended.

I bought this book quite some time ago, and although I admit I have never read it cover-to-cover, as is my practice with most books of this sort that I have in my extensive professional library, I have referred to it countless times to refresh my self-presentation technique, admittedly a constant work in progress.

I will spare you the angst of my personal frustration when, unable to locate my one copy of this advice on self-presentation, I nearly tore the house apart in my failed attempts at locating it.

I turned to Amazon in my efforts to find this book, and despite my creative and endless queries and searching, I was unable to find the title. Fortunately, I found my sole copy buried in a box I was unpacking from a recent major residential move.

I was so needing a refresher on the topic of this book, and knew that no other resource would provide the same guidance.

Bragging is such a negatively-infused word yet the author gently leads the reader to understand differently. Helping others to understand exactly who you are, what you have done, and effectively, why anyone should ever listen to you is an invaluable gift. Read this book.

After my desperate, and ultimately successful, search to find my copy of this book, I bought a few more copies. Yes, a few. Now I don't have to search for it again. I have copies in multiple locations.

Most of us can learn more effective methods of self-presentation, self-promotion, and how important it is for others to be helped to know who we each are. We are each unique packages of wonderful experience, gifts and talents. Learn to brag without bluster and bravado. This book will guide you toward that end.

This book's title should be a little more specific. I do not agree that the book relates to bragging in average everyday converstation with strangers or friends but rather how to "show yourself off" in a job interview or sales presentation and not giving the appearance of a huge ego. If you are quiet or unsure about yourself in job interviews or how to stand out and build quick rapport in sales, this would be a great book. If you are interested in "tooting your own horn" with friends, neighbors, etc..., I would pass on this title.

I did not like this book. It provided very little information and the author seemed to spend most of the time bragging about how she promotes herself or telling how people did not effectively toot their own horn and very little time providing ways to more effectively toot your own horn.

Really enjoyed the book. Everyone needs to know how to make themselves look good in true statements and positive communication. This idea is not limited to the workplace--useful in everyday life. Makes you feel good without taking center stage. I recommend this book.

Give me back my my money Peggy Klaus!
There's nothing really practical in this book. It's some 3rd grade obvious knowledge you don't need any book to know it. It addresses some specific encounters with specific people and has nothing to do with "art". And this book is so repetetive it could be written in 1 page. SAVE YOUR MONEY AND TIME, DO NOT BUY.
