The world has evolved to a present dispensation referred to as the digital age. This is the age where computers, smartphones, tablets, smartwatches, and other gadgets have entirely changed how humans market and consume content. According to a Microsoft Corp. study, the average adult human attention span in 2015 was only 8.25 seconds. With the short span of attention, how can you connect with your audience seamlessly within 8 seconds? Do not overthink this. The author shares an eight-second (superpowers) guide to raising a brand, increasing sales, and changing lives. This book also contains twenty new strategies which ensure that these superpowers give you the desired result.

The book shows that the power of the digital space cannot be overemphasised in creating compelling content that emotionally connects with readers or potential customers. To increase word-of-mouth marketing, a brand can no longer rely on posting ads without engaging fans in a two-way conversation through comments, contests, polls, events, and more. The digital space has proved very effective for this.

The author continues to develop creative and innovative skills and ideas to pitch your career success story and money tips for retiring early. This book urges us to remember this: "a brand without a ‘Wow Story’ will go nowhere fast." A ‘Wow Story’ simply means developing your story to inspire fans and media. So the question is, what are the components of a ‘Wow Story’? That’s exactly what this book answers. Taking this course would be a good investment in your career. The author also includes a process she calls the Story Energiser Process. This process, when done correctly, will take your brand to the next desired level. I like that the author references some big-wigs in the media industry by including their quotes.

I admire the author's PR experiences, which she shared at the beginning of her marketing and PR career. The story resonates with many businesses, authors, CEOs, and marketing professionals. The PR superpower tools introduced simplicity to the course with action items and a recap at the end of each step. With statistics and references, the author could provide incredible insights from case study examples relevant to all classes of brands. I highly commend the author's enthusiasm, team spirit, and giving back to society, especially donating to autism charities.

In conclusion, this book challenges brands to be relentless in brainstorming, developing new media hooks, improving on pitches, and continuing to tell their ‘Wow Story.' The author also used one of these superpowers by highlighting how she intends to empower one million people and brands. In my opinion, this intention is relatable and makes me 'wow' at her story. And sincerely, I am one of the lucky one million people she intends to empower. I am empowered with the knowledge I gained from this book. I didn’t just learn, but I have started implementing some of the strategies in this book. I have no reason to dislike anything in this book.

The clients' testimonials speak volumes about the author and her impact. As a result, I rate the book 4 out of 4 stars. The author's writing style is quite impressive; no errors or offensive words were used. I strongly recommend the 8-second PR course by Liz H. Kelly to publishers, marketers, CEOs, authors, and PR professionals who want to achieve ultimate media success. If you have been struggling with getting Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) right, this is a must-read for you. You cannot afford to miss the gems that lie within this book.

This book has a very alluring plot and is very informative. It is very true that humans attention span has gotten shorter over the years and it would be really important to learn how to control it.

How the author wove together seemingly unrelated elements into a coherent whole was a strength of the book for me. Your review has convinced me that I need to read this book because the author has a wonderful writing style and is obviously an expert in all the areas you mention. That was a fantastic evaluation; well done!
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst?
17 If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy that person; for God’s temple is sacred, and you together are that temple.
