This book sounds like a perfect work of an internet marketing scam artist. Like most good works of fiction, the book is a riveting read and the ideas are presented in a manner to shock and awe the mind of the reader and turn them into true believers of the STRONG method.

Once, this has been done, head on over to pitchanythingedge.com and shell out $200 to fill the pockets of **SUCCESSFUL** scam artist Oren Klaff. This guy is good at one thing - preying on gullible, desperate readers.

I absolutely loved this book and have been using the material in it to improve my business success. I do not go out to make pitches as does Mr Klaff, but people come to me to buy diamonds and I am now recognizing the frames that they attempt to dominate me with. By understanding the frames and how to counter them, I am able to present myself, and my diamonds as the prize that they truly are.

This has resulted in immediate improvement of my already booming business, and I am now busier than ever, so perhaps it is working almost too well. I am pretty sure I can live with that, and if not, well, I will just have to hire, and train, a willing assistant.

P.S. I had my first, swallow my fear and just say it, success while I was still reading the book. It really IS that powerful!

Entertaining, but poorly organized. The chapters are a MESS. There's not even a specific chapter allocated to (or so much as named after) each of the items in his acronym: STRONG. They're strewn across and mixed up between chapters. He never designates what category each item falls under, and frequently goes back to previous ideas which are also used in later ideas. It begins to feel like a mess of concepts and ideas which you use more fluidly, less of a step-by-step system. Other issues...:
-He makes repeated promises throughout the story to "come back to that" and never does.
-He actually never tells you how to "Nail the hookpoint" or even commits any substantial time to this. From what I can gather... it just happens after you "frame stack" on people? More on that in the next bullet...:
-Many of the examples he uses are ridiculously extreme. For instance, in discussing stacking frames, he talks about the "Moral Frame." Now, from re-reading multiple vague sections, this is a required tactic for the hookpoint (I think? he never actually says if its an option or a requirement). His two examples of a moral frame are: 1) Mother Theresa, and 2) guilt tripping a $100 million con-artist. Yeah. Super useful, I'm sure I'm bound to meet Mother Theresa or a professional con-artist.

Overall, the author repeatedly pitches you on the book, but then when you stop and think back, you realize that you got very few examples of how to implement except for ridiculous, grandiose, single-story case studies. The book would've benefitted from less bravado and more specifics. The single case-study extreme examples seem more of "oh I succeeded, lets try to guess what it is and then give it a name" than some tried and true system.

Four stars because it was educational, interesting, and gave me a lot of helpful info. It simply isn't something that will truly give me many advantages in a pitch outside of trying to raise VC money for a tech company.

This book lives up to its name. Yes it's about pitching big deals, but if you're paying attention, the approach can be used in all social situations. If you spend time with people, this book is for You.

Oren Klaf, is teaching a more practical and simple approach to moving people to your desired call to action. This isn't about being gimmicky or salesly, it's about being yourself and believing in your work. Assuming you have something worthwhile, this direct approach is efficient in getting people to see the perspective you set for them. It's forever changing how I see the world around me.

It's not about deception, embellishment, lies, being something your'e not, badgering your target. If you want that go somewhere else.

This is about how real people relate to real ideas, and how you can teach them to understand why your work is special and exactly for them.

My biggest takeways are learning to prize myself and not care about earning money. The less I stress on being liked and being desparate for money, the simpler getting what I want becomes.

I love it and recommend it to anyone who is frustrated with lackluster results from conventional selling techniques.

The "Pitch" certainly did work as I bought Oren's book other than that I would suggest all pass on this as the book is more about his ego on closing on deals then teaching. I get what he was trying to do but Oren was continually going on and on about how great he was or is. From him closing on the big shot he can't name to Oren getting some chap's money back from some bad guys. While Oren is good at what he does Oren isn't good at giving practical applications to his so called method to "Pitch Anything". My final thought? Pitch this anywhere but your shopping cart. Now if I could figure out a way to get ALL my money back......
