5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book!!!!!! 8 Jan. 2012
By OrganicGreen VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
I listened to the audio book of this and I am so impressed. Richard explains how he uses scientific results to allow us to know just what simple techniques we can use to be better at persuading others. He quotes scientific reports and gives clear easy ways on how you can implement the techniques in your life. Did you know that offering overly large rewards for a task can actually demotivate and why? When in an interview when is it best to say about your weaknesses? Mentioning weaknesses at the beginning is better than at the end of interview, as this shows that you are open and honest.

I bought his audio book about motivation and loved it so I have bought the whole lot of the 59 seconds range. I would definitely recommend them all. Also recommend his earlier book the Luck Factor. .

3.0 out of 5 stars Not sure 4 Aug. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I've read the book I can't say I can remember anything about it. I don't think it's taught me anything. However that shouldn't detract from a well written book. And may well prove useful to someone else.

If you already have "59 Seconds" don't buy this. It's exactly the same chapter. Sadly the publishers don't feel the need to make that clear. The material is still a fine read if you are new to this though material.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing content - totally forgettable 17 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Disappointed with content. Read it a few months ago and remember very little of what was said because very little of value of note was said. Not expensive but really don't waste your money.
