I bought this book in error. Stupid me. So I listened to it since I paid for it. This book is so predictable. The information provided was all plain common sense items. Nothing new. And the narrator - it sounded like I was listening to a 50's instruction tape. Save your money or your credits. If you really want some worth while information, buy a Wayne Dyer or Deepak Choopra and try a more spiritual approach rather than trying to manipulate people.
The title, of course, is preposterous. But that's the draw. Can we actually even come close to acheiving either of these two goals? A little bit? That would be worth it, wouldn't it? Unfortunately for the reader, there is nothing new amongst these digital syllables, and certainly nothing approaching the kind of substance that would justify the title. What I can't figure out is why the guy didn't write two books, to milk more cash from this stunt. Then again, maybe since One Promise books already flooded the marketplace, he figured that he'd be the first one to have a Two Promise title!
Found this to be a very usful listen with some great ideas if you work in a negotiating arena you will definitly find this book usefull
Great if you need to lie to your wife about a fling with your secretary. Or escape rape or other abusive relationships. Teaches that morals and personal honor is not worth anything if you can lie to achieve more. Overall the book is hype based manipulative dribble. Save your money and try something else.
This book was congealed down from several other ideas into just enough material to qualify for a "selfhelp" book. The title is not really what the book is about and is misleading. It lacked focus and I downloaded at a three level and found the quality quite bad as well.
I think it was originally written on how to handle angry, sexually aggressive people but more material was needed for filler at the front end of the book so it's disjointed.
Not recommend at all.
This book is very helpful for me and my clients in developing clearer communications and becoming more direct. But strangely both from the title and the tone throughout the book, it feels as if one is reading something that is intended to secretly trick people into doing things. After reading the book I don't think that's really what is being asserted at all. There's very good sections on how to make a sincere apology, how to train a team that works for you, how to work through relationship issues. A lot of them were very helpful, despite a sort of slimy angle that the intention is to make people behave differently than they normally would.
My husband lost my CD of this book which had twice the tracks. Also this is terribly organized. It's tons of information with no labels and lumped together in three parts. So disappointed!
I didn't feel that the author offered much of value beyond what most people would find fairly obvious. Moreover, Mr. Lieberman spends an inordinate amount of time "hyping" the "amazing secrets" he's going to reveal (any second now)...only to leave the listener sorely disappointed.
In the interest of full disclosure, I must admit I only made it through to about the halfway point before giving up on this book from sheer boredom.
