The author is no doubt a gifted entrepreneur, and this book is worth a read. However, it lacks substance and contains few original ideas. For instance, we are told to write a book, develop a product, and do joint ventures. Nothing new there then! There is also insufficient information on how to implement the ideas presented.

The number of 5-star reviews is puzzling, to say the least.

Contrast the more substantial treatment of the subject of becoming a thought leader, by Ken Lizotte in "The Expert's Edge: Become the Go-To Authority People Turn to Every Time". For a masterpiece on the subject of influence, you cannot get better than Robert Cialdini's "Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion". See also the superb How to Build Your Reputation: The Secrets of Becoming the Go to Professional in a Crowded Marketplace by Rob Brown.

Update 30 July 2012 - I have just finished reading Jason Selk's book 'Executive Toughness: The Mental-Training Program to Increase Your Leadership Performance'. This provides the best and most effective system for setting and achieving goals I have ever read.

Abraham Lincoln is famously quoted as saying "Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe." [And it's also important to note that Lincoln was prodigiously productive once he started swinging an axe, for starters.]

In business, positioning yourself powerfully and following through with highly productive action from that position is where the smart money is. Daniel Priestley's Key Person of Influence is a powerful blueprint for current and aspiring entrepreneurs who want to stand out ethically, attract far more business from clients who value them most highly, and make their highest contribution to society at large.

Do these principles work?

Yes, exceptionally well, as evidenced by the scores of successful entrepreneurs worldwide who follow this path. And what's more, the Key Person of Influence model is highly leveraged and far more efficient than the usual hamster wheel business-chasing approach that normal businesses get trapped in.

Bringing this closer to home, I've had the pleasure of knowing Daniel Priestley for many years now, as a client, business associate and friend, and he stands out consistently as one of the most accomplished, ethical and noteworthy entrepreneurs I've seen anywhere in the world. Not only is Dan exceptional at quickly bringing huge value to market, he's also an inspiring social entrepreneur who balances his considerable business success with sustained, highly effective social contribution.

I highly recommend Key Person of Influence as a masterclass in how to create a highly successful, ethical business that works for the good of all concerned.

Let's start with the positives:
This is a light easy well-written read, which will appeal to you if you don't like to get bogged down in detail.

It details a 5 step process which if you follow will help you become a Key Person of Influence. Daniel also outlines why you want to become a KPI, and how to make yourself accountable to making sure it happens.

There are several inspirational case studies at the back of the book for people wondering about taking the plunge.

However, as many other reviewers have said, it's lacking the meat. The book's got a catchy title and been exceptionally well marketed. It does feel like it's a 180-odd page advert for Daniel's key person of influence program.

Personally, I would recommend you read 'trust agents' by Julian smith and Chris Brogan, or Rob Brown's How to build your reputation. These books will give you the meat...

I first met Daniel when I was in college, (a somewhat absurd 7 or something years ago). The ideas and the mentality that were instilled in me from that age have defined me and my approach to business today.

Daniel can influence people a disproportionate large amount with the smallest input. Many of the ideas in this book I have lived with for many years now, and are echoed by the higher echelons of the business world. I have no doubt that this book can help everyone, and anyone. All I would add to this is that to truly have faith in the book, you must see Daniel in person if you can. This will allow you first hand to see the expertise and experience that this book is grounded in, and will make it a much easier read, knowing the philosophy from which it is borne.

Daniel's book is neither deep nor comprehensive and does little to do justice to helping others than to get beyond the basics of how to network. Most people will already understand this and then the rest is modelled on his own recipe of getting people to see him, listen to him and buy his book (either directly or through affiliates).

So get connected on the internet, decide how to sell yourself and your skills, write a book on a subject that you know about (be credible), publicise yourself and the book, form alliances to promote others and yourself (affiliates) and hey presto there you go.

Use slideshare instead and you will get more information and more detail than this book.
