Review

"If you aspire to a better life you′ll enjoy The Impact Code..." ( Newark Advertiser, August 2006)

"...tough questions...words of wisdom..." (Business Life, October 2006)

"This book is a haven, a sensible and calming ′place to go′ when all around you is chaos, madness and pointless. It is something of a talisman...will provide ideas for leading a better quality of life.... This book will help you realign your internal compass." (Personnel Today, November 2006)

"Lots of good advice, words of wisdom, and salient points." (First Voice For Business, May 2007)

From the Back Cover

"I believe that Nigel Risner is the best speaker in the world. He excites, he challenges and most of all he impacts the lives of thousands of people to take action."

David Taylor – Author of The Naked Leader

"YOU made the difference Nigel and Wow!"

Kriss Akabussi – The Akabussi Company

"Not another self–help book?" I hear you cry.

Well, for once no, definitely not just another self–help book.

You′ve probably tried, and more than likely been dissapointed by self–help books in the past. Why is that and why is this one different?

Well here′s the truth: the fault doesn′t lie in the books you′ve read before, it lies with you. Only you can make a difference. It wasn′t the books that failed to make an impact, it was you. Get over it.

The Impact code is a beautifully simple approach to life. So simple you will wonder why it never occurred you to do it before. So it′s time to get off you butt and start living for yourself, for your dreams and for your life.

Nigel Risner′s approach is direct, sincere and devastatingly honest. If you follow the code, you will see and feel a difference in your life and the life of everyone around you.

Your life is waiting for you to get started. All you have to do is crack The Impact code and the world will, quite literally, be yours.

The choice is yours: it always has been.

Format: Paperback
Absolutely essential reading!... I found myself re reading and re reading not because I couldnt take it in... but because it was such a self discovery!

One of the first parts of the book discribes the inner voices in our heads... 'the coach' the inner voice which says '... yes, go for it.. you can do this, come on!' and 'the commentator' - who is responsible for making us doubt our abilities and our self worth etc.... The commentator is the negative inner voice we all have who says 'I'm gonna look stupid, they'll think I'm a fool, I'll fail if I try, so I'll sit this out' We are the player. Having this analogy makes so much sense - and it's so clear to me now whats been going on in my head! Lol!... So now I am ignoring my doubting commentator and believing in my coach.... who ultimately... is me! And life just gets better and better!

Nigel has made this a humourous book, a no nonsense read... and he seems to speak directly to the reader... This book will not sit and get dusty on the shelf... I will keep it where I can see it and keep dipping into it regularly to help reinforce the messages.

Thank you Nigel, you have made such a difference and I know that I will now stop procrastinating... get off my backside and make my business fly! - My coach is telling me I can do it!

I have not always agreed with everything Nigel Risner says.... far from it.
Yet in this book you will find the pages packed with information that will challenge you, provoke you, and inspire you to take action.
Many years ago Nigel challenged me in this way .... and it worked !
This book pulls no punches and is written in a similar style to which he speaks and presents.
A great read.

This is a new blend of familiar advice about goal setting, time management and turning your dreams into realities. Nigel Risner is direct and refreshingly honest. He flatly acknowledges that most people don't act because they find it easier not to or because they are lazy. He emphasizes enjoying yourself and incorporating "comic relief" into your planning - a welcome change from many advice books. Risner is an award-winning motivational speaker, and you won't forget this for a moment as you read. Sometimes, his book sounds like the published version of an oft-given speech. Although some of Risner's jokes and turns of phrase probably do a great job of building connections and revving up a live audience, they fall flat on the page. Similarly, he uses oversized fonts and repetition as he might use visual aids and increases in volume to clarify his points in a speech. In writing, though, the results can be a little confusing. Still, if you're looking for more depth and meaning in your life and relationships, getAbstract recommends trying the exercises and taking to heart the stories in this book.

I'll be honest I have read more than my share of Personal Development books, but this one is a cut above the rest. There are a lot of genuinely new ideas and concepts. Many such books just re-present ideas you have read elsewhere, but I'm glad to say the contents of this book are fresh and interesting.

There are so many self-help books! Which to buy? For most of us the answer is, numerous, and they tend to be either read once, and then forgotten, or not read at all; either way the difference they make to our lives tends to be negligible. This syndrome is what Nigel Risner calls 'shelf development' - i.e. too many books, too many good intentions, all ending up on the shelf, gathering dust. We end up expecting different results from the same behaviours.

Nigel's book, The IMPACT Code, begs to differ. It starts from the premise that, in order to change, in order to get and live the life we deserve, we must first commit to action. And that starts with being 'In the room' (the 'I' of IMPACT). A book that doesn't just 'tell you what to do' - a book that demands your attention! Of course, we can all choose to stay within our comfort zone and, having read this book, put it on the shelf with the others. This book, however, not only grabs our attention, it follows through with a code that is so simple, and so clearly explained, that...well...why wouldn't we keep it by us, use it, and take action to make an IMPACT and achieve the change - and the life - we want (and deserve)?

If you haven't heard Nigel Risner speak, take it from me this man knows how to make an IMPACT, and this book will help you to do so too. What are you waiting for?!

This is one of the best books in my library and I've often recommended it to my clients. Nigel brought some basic principles into plain view in a way that anyone should pick up in no time. For a start, to take part in life you need to be in the room. Not sure what that means? Read the book...

OMG what a book! Nigel packs several knock out punches in this straight talking, witty and powerful read that will have you raring to change as of tomorrow. Many have the t-shirt, but seldom few 'share' the t-shirt and this is what he does.

Brilliantly and honestly delivered.

But the book is just the first step...Having seen him deliver in front of 12 to 2,000 people you must simply either 1. Go to see him speak, or 2. Book him to speak at your next event.
