David McNally and Karl D. Speak bring an important topic to the forefront. Initially I started reading this book thinking that this would be completely tactical - about what to leverage to market yourself in a more positive light. Yes, Be Your Own Brand covers these topics too, but really spend most of the material uncovering the reader's real brand, values, and brand promise.
