Rehash of Old Stuff
The title makes a promise that is too good to be true. I should have known that but I took the bait. Like most of this type of books that promise some amazing result, there is practical advice but little about making a specific application.
Tell stories. Yes, we respond to stories. But customers or clients won't eat from your hand because you enticed them with a story. Have you never heard that stories are an effective tool of persuasion?
The narration is not to my liking. In all, the book has some useful tips if you are new to the persuasion game. Otherwise, I think it's best to focus on your offer, be honest, offer a guarantee that covers fear and be real with people. In other words, if you want to get people to do what you want by a technique you find in a book, it won't happen.

not what i anticipated
Would you be willing to try another one of Jo Anna Perrin’s performances?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
the ideas presented here didnt seem to be more then very simple reverse psychology, reward systems etc..
