PRAISE FOR THE PUBLIC RELATIONS HANDBOOK
"The Public Relations Handbook is an invaluable resource, not only for PR practitioners, but also for the executives that work with them. While no book can teach the lessons that can only come from experience, this handbook provides an excellent introduction to each of the key disciplines within the field. For those of us that have or will work with professional communicators, The Public Relations Handbook will help us work better with our partners towards the same goals. For PR practitioners, this handbook will tell you what you need to know to get far enough into a new sub-discipline to start gaining the experiences that will truly make you a pro.”
— Clear Purpose
“As news, information, and disinformation rocket around the world in seconds, it’s critical for companies of all sizes to know how to shape the narrative and maintain as much control as needed. It’s not easy. But The Public Relations Handbook does a fine job of putting the pieces together."
"I found this book to be invaluable."

"If you are involved in PR as a small business owner or if you are in charge of public relations for a large organization, The Public Relations Handbook is for you.”

"With each chapter focused on a specific aspect, The Public Relations Handbook lives up to its name. Indeed, it would be easy to imagine this book being used in an introductory college class on public relations. It covers a lot of ground. It puts a lot of things into perspective for the PR professional and for others who find they have to work with the public, the government, or the various media out there.”

"In a few months, hundreds of thousands of young people will graduate from schools, colleges, and universities. This book would be an appropriate gift of incalculable value. Meanwhile, most — if not all — of countless business executives — with direct reports entrusted to the care — have already encountered eager beavers who need encouragement as they struggle with various challenges. This would also be an appropriate gift of substantial value for them. Moreover, I think that Nailing It should be included among the assigned readings for corporate and self-directed learning programs that help people to accelerate their personal growth and professional development.”

"The great part about this book is that it will be a relief to the kids and twenty-somethings who read this, it reinforces that it's OK to not have an idea about what you want to do...It's 246 pages of gentle encouragement for us all, no matter which end of the journey you're on."

"This was such an awe inspiring book to see Dilenschneider pick twenty five of the most iconic and brilliant people at age twenty-five and who have already nailed it and have made a difference in our world. I think this book will serve as an inspiration to people of all ages, and most especially for those whose lives are just beginning to encourage positivity, especially in this new world we are living in.”

"This book will remind readers that it is never too late to make an impact. The photo features my oldest daughter, not quite 20. This post is dedicated to her and her sister. I hope they know it's never too late to do great things."

PRAISE FOR DECISIONS
“Dilenschneider has brilliantly selected, studied and culled lessons from some of the most remarkable decision making processes the world has ever known. The applications for which are virtually endless and transcending industry or trade.
