5.0 out of 5 stars What Is Personal Branding Review January 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I received an electronic copy of What Is Personal Branding for the purpose of this review, however, my thoughts are my own and not influenced by any monetary compensation.

My Review

Personal branding is an important part of life, whether applying for a new job, blogging like myself, or even meeting a friend out and about for coffee. Personal branding, put simply, is being aware of how you are representing yourself (or your company), and the message you are sending to others. First impressions stick (whether we like that or not) and this book helps you become aware of the brand you are representing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting January 11, 2012
By Mattidw
Format:Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying that this book has a lot of good information in it but I couldn't get into it. I had to read the same pages several times because I would get bored my mind would wonder. I just couldn't get into this book like I have been able to do with other books but it does have great information on it and I really can help bloggers with their branding.

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh... January 9, 2012
By Liz R.
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm a mommy/housekeeping blogger. I think this would be better for people who are in the corporate world and get a lot of face time. It's all pretty much common sense stuff. I didn't like how it was written. The first part was written by one author and the next section written by the second author. Their styles of writing are very different; they should have collaborated together to write the book with a more consistent writing style.

That said, it does have helpful information about what personal branding is. The second half of the book has exercises for you to research yourself online and how to improve how you want yourself to be viewed.
