1
looks a little better
2
It makes it more personal
3
I would choose option A because reading the cover makes me feel like I'd find out something more about myself while reading the book.
4
I like this cover better with the title asking the question because it makes you think, meaning it's more captivating.
5
b is good
6
B A is good
7
More intriguing title that provokes thought.
8
It is so interesting.
9
I prefer the one that asks a question, the other sounds more like a weird detective novel.
10
It looks so attractive.
11
Its looking attractive.
12
First one sounds more personalized than the other generic one.
13
I think the question, "Are you the unknown expert?" gives it a personalize feeling and I think it feels more geared towards the user.
14
Option A is more unusual. Option B is kind of boring. Option A attracts more attention by asking us a question about ourselves. It also goes better with the picture.
15
Feels more personal yet seems a bit wordy, I do like it better because it appeals to me and makes me feel like I could discover something about myself
16
i creates interesting to read the book..
17
Asking the Question : Are you the Unknown Expert?' is more grabbing and making one think quicker with the question "Well, Am I am?" puts one in the thinking capacity to want to read more about the article.
18
This title suggests that I might have an idea that could generate income. The alternate title suggests someone else holds that role.
19
Perspective works best, since its a self-help book identifying how "you" can unleash your ideas. The other isn't as personal
20
I like how A asks if you are the unknown expert.
21
This title is more tempting to me because it causes you to perform a "self-inventory"
22
i like her lips
23
The question, "Are you the unknown expert?" in option A seems to pop out and grab my attention better. It also seems to personalize it better than option B.
24
The title is a little clearer and gets the point across
25
good design, and perfect color combination
26
I like A. It grabs my attention with an intriguing mystery. Choice B does not make it clear who the expert is- the reader or the author.
27
More likely to grab someone's attention and interest
28
The title being a question makes it more appealing to me
22 Responses to Option B
1
A is too wordy and you shouldnt title a book with a question
2
it is good
3
i liked this pic so i choose them
4
I like to choose this because of it is so creative.
5
Less is more when it comes to book titles. I like this title.
6
You don't need the question, it doesn't do anything to draw attention to the title.
7
Shorter is always better. Consumer attention is small. B is superior to A.
8
The title sounds much more authoritative.
9
Sounds better as non-question
10
A would make me just google things. The cover shouldn't ask a question.
11
I like this option, because I did not like the question as the title. I don't like the face of the woman on the cover. She does not look like she has anything to tell anyone. It seems offensive to your target market.
12
The title as a statement makes me feel like the book will help me to become "the unknown expert", while the title as a question makes me feel like the book will help me to identify if I already am "the unknown expert" or not, but won't necessarily help me to become that if I am not already.
13
The title is simpler.
14
A cleaner cover design.
15
I like the headline wording
16
The title of the book seems more authoritative and better without the use of the question mark, which is why I chose option B.
17
I think magazines with questions In the title are unintelligible and tacky.
18
I'm not drawn to the title in the form of a question. This statement is more definitive.
19
Sounds nicer and the title is not crowded.
20
Choice B looks less crowded and gets straight to the point.
21
I LIKE THIS COVER
22
In general I do not like either book cover. I dislike choice B less, so voted for it. Not sure why I dislike the covers, but they both are not appealing to me.
