"What is Cybersecurity?"
Absolutely Outstanding - I read this book when at a very dark time at an extremely toxic work environment. I was consistently meeting projects goals and always delivering my work on time but I was always told I could do better at the end of each project. I received constant blanket criticism because no one was actually reviewing my work for constructive feedback and was told to keep comparing my work and growth to who my leadership thought were the best performers.
After too much of this pressure and gaslighting from leadership, I was in a cycle of hating myself and my work. I lost value in myself and I also didn’t believe there would ever be a future where I could be treated with dignity and respect in my chosen career.
After reading this book it was like rediscovering myself all over again. From the Introduction all the way to Final Thoughts, Dr. Hasib has a firm understanding of current events and issues that are plaguing society and our economy. These conditions then impact how our employers, colleagues, and we value ourselves. Dr. Hasib doesn’t hold back, we are in an economical apartheid and his book is a tool to help us navigate that and try to achieve success on our own terms.
What allowed me to be so impacted by this book is how Dr. Hasib breaks it down. He starts off by making you understand who you are as an individual and what you value. Your core identity will be shaped by your values, your goals, and in turn these will shape your personal brand. It’s truly applicable to any and all. And this affirmative process helped me tremendously to understand that what I wanted professionally was not aligned with that toxic environment. I was able to interview with a new organization and leave shortly after.
Dr. Hasib outlines approaches and pragmatic solutions to developing your personal brand. To make it relatable and back his own approach he writes from experience and shares his own journey in the cybersecurity industry. This book is an excellent resource for anyone in a similar position as my own and looking to truly improve and grow for themselves.

Most impactful book to fuel your career development goals
This is the most impactful book I have read in the past year that is directly aligned with one of my top 3 career development goals, Build My Authentic Personal Brand. For the first time, I learned about the true definition of personal branding and how to strategically start positioning my value.
When I was reading and taking quick notes on Dr. Mansur Hasib’s book, “Bring Inner Greatness Out: Personal Brand”, I was reminded of Napoleon Hill’s message on the importance of emotional commitment – “There’s one quality that one must possess to win, and that’s definiteness of purpose. The knowledge of what one wants and burning desire to posses it.” I was glued to the book and finished the book in one day.
After reading "Bringing Inner Greatness Out: Personal Brand" book, I proceeded to read another great book by Dr. Mansur Hasib, "Cybersecurity Leadership" because it was also aligned with my Goal #2: Leading with influence.
