What would make a good title of Biography book?

by smak 9 replies
Hi

What would make a good Biography title and tagline to command attention and interest?

let me get the ball rolling...using my warrior name as title name of person, I have the following suggestion:

----------------------------------
smak

The Untold Story
-----------------------------------

Following direct response principles, obviously being clever with words,using cliches or bland boring words is not in scheme of things here.

Cheers.

    Hi there

    This will help a bit:

    What's the person's background? Why do I want to read about him or her anyway? Hard to make a title without knowing a bit about that.

    Example - are they someone with a special story to share? A marketing genius? A doctor? Teacher? Animal Trainer? Elephant Mad Scientist?

      The Biography is on a famous ex-sportsman of international fame.

      Let's have more ideas.

    "Let's have more ideas?" And not even a please in sight...

    In my opinion, that's a pretty rude way to ask busy copywriters "can I have some of your ideas for free?"

    Cheers and I wish you luck with your book.

      I find it very inappropriate and rude that you express your grudge on the main thread when it would have been more sensible of you if you had written the same thing to me directly via private message.

      BTW, I was only following on to my initial post. Maybe you overlooked that.

      No hard feelings.

        I shall take out my undying grudge on you sir Smak! Right after these messages:

        No hard feelings at all my friend!

        I'm pointing out that you'll be hard pressed to find help when you ask in such a manner. As to your original post, I'm not sure where you ask politely, but if you felt you have, then we can agree to disagree.

        I'm truly sorry if I offended you

    Look for a book called, "The First $100 Million". Its nothing BUT book titles. Bring your wallet.

    I forgot who originally said this, It came from an NLP book about modeling, but focus more on your questions and less on your answers. That works universally. OP Danielle has a point, there is only so much we can do with guesswork.

    Best,

    Ross

      Ross,

      That big fella called Antony Robbins said, "Better questions lead to better answers".

      Was that what you were trying to come up with?

      Best,

        Well he must of heard it from the same person I did, God, my memory leaves me on this one. It was a book before Robbins.

        I think it was Robert Dilts.

        Best,

        Ross
