5.0 out of 5 stars One Of The Best Books On The Topic!, 13 Jun 2013
I picked up this book at WHSmiths at Manchester Airport on a trip out to South Africa. The book was Number 1 in the Business Best Sellers section - not surprising really, as I'm familiar with Paul's previous work and this book continues that high standard.

This book is an excellent resource of simple, easy-to-implement tips to improve your relationships with others. It's not the Encyclopaedia Britannica, nor is it meant to be. It's a great resource that's very easy to pick up and read a few pages at a time, and come back to later - the sort of book that busy people like to read, rather than wade through lots of pages to get to the main points - it's simple to get to the many nuggets that are provided within this book.

If you're after a elongated, highbrow, intellectual pontification session, look elsewhere. If you're after simple, easy-to-implement tips that will have an immediate impact on your relationship with others - this is the book for you.

Highly Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile read, 8 May 2006
Great for anyone who has studied NLP and wants to explore meta-programs a littile deeper. Very well put together and includes some great insights into human behaviour.

Worth a read if only to understand yourself and others a little better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! This book is a MUST!, 8 May 2006
I've been lucky enough to see a review copy of this book and I cannot praise it highly enough.

As someone who has studied with some of the best trainers in the business, and read goal-setting and personal power books from the likes of Anthony Robbins, Brian Tracy, Zig Ziglar and many others, I have to put this book right up there with the best!

Not only is it laid out in a very easy-to-read format, the concepts are explained very simply - easy to pick up for the beginner, but also giving great insights for the more experienced reader of Personal Development material.

Where the book delivers real value is in the practical exercises that are cleverly intermingled with the content. The exercises are constructed so well, I'm sure that everyone who reads it will get tremendous benefit from doing so.

In my opinion, this book breaks new ground in the crucial areas of goal setting - but don't be deceived, this book delivers far more than just helping you to achieve your goals - it's a "bible" to getting better personal results.

I'll be recommending this to my friends, colleagues and business contacts as THE book on goal-setting, and a "must read".

Buy this book today, I promise you won't regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars E-Myth - A "Must Read" for all Small Business Owners, 2 May 2006
What a fantastic book!

I first read it about 18 months ago and am re-reading it for about the 10th time now.

It has transformed the way I look at and conduct business and I recommend it to all my networking friends, business associates and coaching clients.

It uses the story of a particular individual to illustrate the most common mistakes business owners make and provides some amazing insights.

Buy this book today, you won't be dissappointed!
