    Story

    It's a long book, but it is enjoyable and full of practical knowledge for anyone who gives speeches, leads teams, presents in front of large audiences, is a spokesperson or is a master of ceremonies.

    Every key point in the book is illustrated with plenty of examples from recognized leaders. You may have heard about some of these skills before, but you will surely learn a trick or two that will make worth your investment (time and money) in this book.

    Story

    I have read probably ten books on the subject and this is by far the best.

    I was skeptical because Brendan sounded like a young sales guy with too much energy in one of his videos online. It reminds me of the Sham Wow guy.

    However, his story is real, he is not as young as he looks, he has a solid background (5 years at Accenture) and a powerful personal story. His energy is contagious. The book makes you feel he really wants to help

    Yes, Brendan does a little bit of selling for this other products, and you may say this book is only to generate prospects for his online seminars, but I think he is allowed to do that., After all, it is a good example of the process you need to follow if you want to be a millionaire messenger selling your expertise.

    The audio book is enjoyable, thoughtful and practical. I recommend it.

    "Good if you can dedicate your time to listening"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The information is good but its difficult to follow due to the narration style.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator really detracted from the information presented. The tone was very monotonous and dry. The delineation between the headers and the content is not as clear as it could be. This might be a book that's easier to read than to listen to.

  • "Great introduction to NLP"

    6 of 6 helpful votes
    Would you consider the audio edition of Neuro-Linguistic Programming For Dummies Audiobook to be better than the print version?

    After listening to the audio edition, I ordered the full print book on Amazon. I am reading through it now... the audio version is abridged, and the print version does have more material. However, it appears that the key elements are included in this audio edition. If you are interested in the highlights/abridged material, this audio version is outstanding (I have actually listened to it a few times now). After listening to it, you can determine if you want more in depth material, and purchase the print version. So, I think the audio is a better buy as an introduction.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The material is very well organized, provides the information for understanding, then practical steps to apply the information.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is very informative, and it helped give me a desire to explore NLP more...:)

    As a man, when you decide that you want to express your romantic or sexual desires, interests, and intentions to a woman, how do you go about communicating those desires and interests to her? Do you communicate your desires and interests to women in a cautious, vague, ambiguous, or 'beat-around-the-bush' manner? Do you avoid approaching women and avoid initiating a conversation with women altogether? Do you regularly cheat on your wife or girlfriend behind her back? Are you currently filled with so much bitterness, misogyny, and resentment toward women that you have no desire whatsoever to even interact with women? When listening to the audiobook version of Mode One: Let the Women Know What You're Really Thinking, Author and Professional Dating Coach Alan Roger Currie describes and examines what he refers to as the "Four Modes of Verbal Communication".

    What does it mean when a fictional hero takes a journey? Shares a meal? Gets drenched in a sudden rain shower? Often, there is much more going on in a novel or poem than is readily visible on the surface - a symbol, maybe, that remains elusive, or an unexpected twist on a character - and there's that sneaking suspicion that the deeper meaning of a literary text keeps escaping you. In this practical and amusing guide to literature, Thomas C. Foster shows how easy and gratifying it is to unlock those hidden truths.
