there were so many good points In the book I will have to listen to it at least one more time to try to get them all down. Not only is this book covered back to back with academic research but it also gets down to the practical points of what actions you actually need to take in order to become an influencer. Dont be fooled by the kitsch name, this book is wonderful!

I believe this could be a better book if the autor included a guideline with the laws and main descriptions, to remember all laws after Reading the book is not posible.
