I have no doubt that Peter Freeth is on course to be one of the most influential and effective leadership guides of the early 21st century. If you've encountered Peter before, you’ll probably already have this book. If you haven’t – be prepared for a fundamental shift in your approach to business. He really is that good.

Page after page, I rediscover ideas from a completely new perspective. I highly recommend it.

This is another exceptional book by an exceptional author, trainer and consultant.

The Pitching Bible presents a very clear and easy to follow method for taking your pitch and refining it to ensure every possibility that's under your control is covered. Crucially, it doesn't 'dumb down' its approach or tell you what to say - so you still have to work at developing your pitch.

Humorous and accessible - This book explains clearly how modelling can help you identify the difference that makes the difference. Really useful in a business context when what creates high performance can be counter intuitive or difficult to quantify. The author gives real examples from his consultancy experience to illustrate how NLP can have a positive impact in practice.

CGW Publishing have been professional and thorough, delivering a quality product quickly and efficiently. They saved us months of work in understanding the many mysteries around getting a book ready for print, going above and beyond in the graphics work, proofing editing and both text and eBook formatting. We remain very grateful to them for all their hard work.

This thought provoking book challenges leaders to think and take action if they are to improve the offering and performance of their organisation: their brand. The Business Cohesion Model should be read and acted on by every Chief Executive and their senior leadership teams.

If your business or personal life depends on great communication, then you need the Pitching Bible by Paul Boross.

There are few books that help you maximize your company's resources to the fullest. Genius At Work tells you, step by step, what it takes to harness the intelligence of individuals, and disperse and install that intelligence throughout an entire organization. The chapter on modelling gives you specific techniques for replicating high performance, while learning about "metaprograms" will fill your toolbox with valuable insights on how you and your team process information. Highly Recommended!

After hearing positive remarks about this book through repeated mentions on various forums, blogs, etc., I made the purchase.

Peter Freeth has a clear writing style that feels like a relaxed conversation between the author and reader. The chapters aren't filled with unnecessary dialogue in an attempt to be overly complex. The material is very thorough, well structured and clear...and the exercises included are relevant to the material presented in the prior chapter. Hard to put down.

With about 20 NLP books on my "shelf", this is one I wish I had purchased earlier in the game.
