1
Pimp Your Book is more attention grabbing. Option B is kind of boring.
2
Seems more appealing to a new generation of writers
3
While I don't love the term "pimp," the title in general is more appealing and catchy.
4
A. SoundSpeaks less boring. ..b. is too long...unnecessary detailed title
5
Title B is much too long. I also didn't like the way it flowed. Title A is a much better choice.
6
Option B is too long
7
I like choice A because the title is catchy and more concise. Choice B is too wordy. Choice A, although a little gimmicky, really gets to the point and gets your attention.
8
I prefer A because the title is more concise.
9
I prefer option A, not only because it is funny, but also because the title in option B is a bit too wordy.
10
Both? A) would grab my attention, but both titles appeal to different entirely different demographs.
11
A is far more catchier.

Sounds more professional.
2
This title is more professional sounding.
3
Don't like the pimp your book title.
4
I think this is more self explanatory than pimping
5
I feel like "Pimp your..." is over done and a little bit dated now. It also implies a cheap way to do something, not a money saving or independent way to get something done.
6
Don't think the title "Pimp my Book" is appropriate or appealing! Makes me think of hookers not book publishing!
7
I don't like the word "pimp" being in the other title.
8
SOUNDS MORE PROFESSIONAL
9
I dont think using the word pimp in a book will attract people who are serious
10
it states a strong goal in a professional way
11
Option A sounds really tacky and kind of sleazy.
12
less gimicky
13
Covers a wider range of people removing the possibility of offending someone who would want the book
14
Title A sounds tacky. Title B sounds more refined and professional.
15
"pimp your book" sounds tacky so I prefer the other.
16
Pimp is such a negative word. I wouldn't want to associate my book with that.
17
Option B sounds more professional and appealing than Option A.
18
Pimp Your ____ is just super annoying.
19
Adding "make money" is more appealing for readers
20
I think B would speak to me more but both would get my attention. I like B a little more because I think it will speak to more writers.
21
I usually like "Your First" things. Also "Pimp" is uncool and overdone.
22
I don't like the word "pimp", not a word I'd associate with a book.
23
It sounds professional
24
I like that this title implies you will have more than one best-seller after purchasing. I do not like option A's use of the word "pimp" as it's juvenile and offensive.
25
Although both are a good description of the contents, Option B just sounds better.
26
Option B sounds better.
27
This book is more appealing title because the title sales on how to make money. People I know would pick this book over the other one. I think almost everyone would actually.
28
Option B would appeal to a larger audience than Option A because of the word "pimp" in the latter which cheapens the title.
29
The other choice sounds unprofessional, something you wouldn't pay money for.
30
I wouldn't read a book that uses the phrase "pimp" as a verb.
31
B has a more professional title and therefore more appealing.
32
It sounds more professional and makes me interested in it.
33
Choice be sounds far more mature and professional compared to A.
34
Personal preference--I do not like the term "pimp your" anything. For that reason B is better to me!
35
sounds more professional
36
sounds more professional
37
The first one is a bit wordy, but the second sounds like it's trying too hard
38
Don't use the word pimp
39
The title is complete and explains what the book is about very well.
