Most of the book applies whether you're in your own business (as I am), looking for a job, or working for a company where you want to be acknowledged, get a raise, or be promoted. A really terrific part of this book is the workbook section "Your Personal PR Action Plan" at the end of each chapter. Don't rush through the book (although it's such an enjoyable read you'll want to keep going). Get out a pencil and do the exercises as you go along. Stop and think - writing things down makes them real and attainable. I already have a "to-do" list with some attainable business goals, just from reading this book and working through it.
Jessica Kleiman and Meryl Weinsaft Cooper have been there/done that - and have successfully been their own best publicists - so they know whereof they speak! I've already bought a couple of books as gifts for friends; that's how good I think it is.
For anyone who is looking to gain a better understanding of PR, how to promote your brand, or turning yourself into your own success story, this is absolutely the book to pick up. “Be Your Own Best Publicist” lays out effective step-by-step actions to understanding your message and successfully getting it out. By thinking about – and then living – the ideas in this book, I am confident I will be able to “highlight my differences” in leveraging my uniqueness with my contacts. I’m happy and relieved to have found this book. Now I’m excited to get started implementing what I’ve learned.
This is a must buy for anyone who wants to succeed in business!
