With that said, of course this doesn't appeal to everyone, but it is a wonderful resource. A non-fiction book as funny as this doesn't come along everyday. In typical post-90's Bandler style, this one portrays him as a slightly neurotic and over-the-top character who really challenges you and motivates you to really get out there and "just do it." You may find him unlikable and disagreeable, but you love him anyways, and that's really the proof that what he discusses works on some level.
I disagree with all of the reviewers who say that this book is light on tips. There are at least seven decidedly unique strategies that you can use on your clients based on what was said in this book. Small things, yes, and some are very specific, but they're still in there to use.
I found Persuasion Engineering to be a wealth of information, not because of the methods he teaches (most of which are more than a little outrageous and probably not practical), but because of the way in which they are taught. I think that the point of the way that they taught this course was to go overboard in hopes that you would meet them halfway. And if you go just halfway, you'll really change the way you do your job.
Excellent. Get it.
- He has very few lists of actions to do (he does list them in the back, but they are not tied into the main part of the book very well). That being said, make your own notes as that will likely be more effective anyway
- True, not really any typos, but that is the ambiguity he is trying to convey to the reader (and ultimately to your own ability to use ambiguity).
- He is being a bit outrageous, but that also is funny. It is a bit of a warped sense of humor, but I like it a lot. Should you really dress up as a priest to sell cars? No, but he is pushing the boundaries to show there really are no boundaries.
- Formal NLP training not required, but maybe a crash course in it would help, mostly with the vocabulary
Having been in sales for a few years, I already had a foundation. This course gave me both the intermediate and advanced knowledge that took my business to a much higher level. This book will not only teach you to persuade, it will also persuade you to do so with more confidence and power without asking you to do anything unethical. I have a much deeper understanding of language and communication know than ever before. Get this book and if you have the chance attend one of their seminars. It will be money well spent.
Do you want to sell more and more and feel good and control how much you sell and at what prices?
Selling is way more simple than most gurus would have you believe. You don't need to find and dig for pain or use a million closing techniques all of that stuff is for idiots to buy from people who want to take so something simple and make it realllly hard. It's gross people struggling with these.
If you want steps to go with this...
Develop questions that will discover someone's model for buying your product.
List objections to inoculate against.
Practice ambiguities and embedding to increase your flexibility and close more people.

Mainly because you will discover hundreds of fascinating language patterns and techniques or if you prefer 'approaches' that you can play with and finally Get things Done effectively! ;)
You may already get great results when your selling or persuading people and that's really great! I'm sure your looking at the reviews here because your wanting to become even more Persuasive somehow? and if so, I guarantee that you can't not find yourself soaking up the techniques in this book as you read it.. and you might even enjoy discovering the hypnotic writing style in this book as you flick through! I know I did and I found it so useful especially when you then use the patterns that are more covertly hidden in this book!
I hope this has been useful and take care,
