The Female Brand: Using the Female Mindset to Succeed in Business

Catherine Kaputa, Author Davies-Black Publishing $24.95 (182p) ISBN 978-0-89106-284-4
Kaputa, a marketing and branding whiz, mines anecdotes from successful women and her own personal experience to sell readers on themselves-rather than trying to be ""one of the boys,"" Kaputa insists, women will get farther in the workplace by using the strengths unique to them. Stuffed with self-evaluation materials, direct advice and ""brainstormer"" exercises, Kaputa has put together a useful, well-organized primer on a familiar argument. While some of the generalizations are a bit heavy handed-women have stronger verbal skills than men, women derive less satisfaction from high-level ""workaholic"" positions-Kaputa breaks down the idea of personal branding into manageable concepts: specialization, presentation and effective networking. In uncertain economic times, this text should prove useful for job seekers, the underemployed, and those striving for advancement.
