I get frustrated when I read a business book that is long on theory and short on practicality. After you have convinced me of the value of a new idea -- show me how to implement it. This book delivers at that level.

Not only does the author put the spotlight on the value of really creating a great agency brand, but then he tells you how to do it.

Well worth the read.

This is a book about advertising and marketing agencies but that doesn't mean you can't benefit from it. If you're in marketing or have your own business you can still benefit. This book focuses on discovering where your expertise lies and how to focus on it without fear of losing business because you're not doing everything. Doing what you do really well and focusing on it provides so many benefits including a better income stream.

I have been following Tim Williams for sometime and I must confess this is the real deal. The book in my opinion is perfection. If you are interested in learning about brands this is the book for you. Every single page feels like gospel and is written in a very readable manner.

Tim has been there, so this book is long on both theory and practice. My copy is highlighted and dog-eared. Heard him speak at a 4As conference. He has the goods. The book is a good investment in your future.

I felt that Tim did an outstanding job with this book.

"Take A Stand For Your Brand" is a must read if you provide professional services in the Advertising & Marketing industry. I purchased this book for every member of our leadership team and we just went through our first group work shop on re-branding our firm. It's funny how we all know the information in this book in some fashion, but Tim did a great job in outlining the process for an agency to follow.

I hope others find insight, inspiration & success in this book.
