    Highly recommended

    This is a great listen. I can't believe all the tips and valuable information I have learned and am using daily on my customers and friends alike. I recommend this book. But he does tend to go overboard upselling. But it is interesting none the less.

    shameless promotion of other products

    I have attempted to listen to this audio book several times, unfortunately every few sentences the author is shamelessly promoting his other products, products that his friends are selling, etc.

    Every few sentences are interrupted by "...go to www.blahblahblah.com" It is very annoying.

    Self promotion ad naseum

    Some of the information provided in the audiobook was good but there was so many references to different websites to promote other services that it turned my stomach. Many references came across as cheap sales tactics and I found myself pressing fast forward to move past sections. This book could have been something meaningful but overall not worth the price of admission. Although vitale claims credibility, his approach leaves a lot to be desired.

    BORING TRANCES

    THIS GUY TALKS ABOUT HIMSELF THE ENTIRE BOOK.
    NO ONE CARES WHAT CAR YOU BOUGHT "NARISSA"...
    TOO LONG TOO WORDY, NEVER "CUTS TO THE CHASE" BUT CONSTANTLY SAYS HE IS ABOUT TO.
    THERE'S MORE INFORMATION IN FREE E-BOOKS THAN IN THIS BORING, TRANCE LACKING BOOK.
    ANNOYING AT BEST.
    *GET "HOW TO GET YOUR POINT ACROSS IN 30 SECONDS OR LESS" YOU'LL LEARN MORE,FASTER,& WONT BE BORED TO DEATH!

    Extremely Helpful

    Vitale's Buying Trances was extremely helpful to me and my marketing and copywriting efforts.
    I was surprised how much easier writing has become to me, maybe you'll reap the same benefit.

    lost my trance

    I listen to the first 2 hrs and returned this book.... although the author/narrator is chrismatic i found that very little usefull content was communicated. There was a lot of statistics that seemed to me to be filler material, not only that but the narration was interupted multiple times by the producer.

    I kept on getting the feeling he was marketing his other materials to me and left me with a sour taste to his content.

    Not good!

    The content of this extremely weak. I wish I hadn't purchased it. I cringe when I think of how bad it is.

    Good to know

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Buying Trances?

    For me, this was about reading other people and understanding what is happening in their head when you think you are on a roll, so you can keep it going and repeat it in your next sale.
