Simple and Effective

It’s almost scary how many times I agreed with the things described in this audiobook. As someone who loves language, I found myself learning so much about phrases that I see so often in sales conversations. The specific use cases for phrases were also very helpful. A great listen that will keep you thinking for a long time, make sure this audiobook is on your collection.

Leaned many effective things from this audiobook.

I enjoyed this audiobook more than I expected! I am usually skeptical of new or self-published authors but I guess I should be more open-minded because this was defiantly a great surprise. I learned many ways how to increase my willpower and sense of self-discipline.

Simple, straight forward and very practical

An excellent audiobook that highlights some very simple ways to change or take control of any conversation. Not just for sales or leadership, but for everyday life. Everything in this audiobook is making sense. If you are looking for some information about How to analyze people then this audiobook is for you.
