For less than a round of drinks ,you can have the skills that people will want , and conversations to keep the most difficult audience happy.
I'm at present studying psychology as a mature student and loved this book ,buy it today and gain the confidence to impress in all areas of your life.
Some really good techniques in here. Is a bit if-y in the middle, is great at the start and end.
The book has been divided into small easy to read chapters, which is good for those who don't want to wade through scientific papers to get to the key points. There are those that may argue that the book has been simplified for the mass audience - to which I say great. It is an easy read full of really useful tips, especially if you want to market your business effectively. Some of which are referenced in The Brighter Marketing Bible for Small Businesses as I thought they would help small businesses understand how to market effectively to their customers.
