Will change your life if you let it.

Daniel has a quiet, thoughtful and effective approach to communicating, quite clearly he applies what he teaches in his lessons.
He notes the importance of the audience drawing its own conclusions, particularly when people are thinking. He also notes why that’s important. It is so because the recipient is now the owner of the idea and he will not lightly give that ownership up.
Many useful ideas about scarcity, not only accrediting the source but also enhancing the source. And then, there is also the scarcity of the opportunity presented in the moment -and - we never want opportunities to escape our grasp.
I could say many more kind things about Daniel’s course, but on reflection, how fair is it of me to deprive you of that opportunity for self discovery?

Just imagine!

I liked the Audio version of this very much. The framework is good & practical too. Instructor has given lots of examples of verbal conversation to make sure that we can apply the learning. Areas of improvement could be to include an example of Difficult conversation with a person who doesn't talk openly.

Personal Useful Brief and entertaining throughout!

I learnt completely new things from this audible. And it was well explained and organised. It would be great if you upload a printable file of the course/presentation/notes like some of the other courses have on Audible. I am more comfortable with hard copy than repetitive listening.

Enjoy Your Self Development

Daniel explains everything in a clear and concise manner. He gives examples that help illustrate what he is aiming to teach. Glad there is a reference to the scientific research as well. A summary PDF of the strategies will be beneficial though.

Hard core advice. Great to implement.

The book was extremely insightful and I feel that it fills in some of the gaps and missing pieces for me that makes more sense from a marketing world. Thank you Daniel for a really great course.

Changing Communication Patterns

Chapter 5: The power of good language helped me to see ways to better communication. Busting the myths was helpful. Looking forward to putting what I learned into practice.
Meeting someone where they are, made more sense than agreeing.

Be inspired by taking action

1st of all I love psychology, the Q of why people do what they do has always been intriguing to me. 2nd it is confirming a lot of things that for some weird reason I have known all along, & finally, I like the way that he puts everything together from a scientific stand point based on facts, & testing not opinions, & personal experience. Great course 5 stars, & 2 thumbs way up! I plan on taking all of his courses thanks so much!

Success redefined for our time.

I absolutely loved this audiobook! I enjoy psychology, but sometimes it can be too boring, BUT thanks to Daniel it was so much fun. Every lesson is great, straight to the point, with great and easy examples.
It is great for beginners as well, because Daniel explains really really good.
I am looking forward to buy more his courses.

Practical steps to be a better human!

I found it very practical and insightful. I never realized how many small, subtle things make a difference when it comes to influencing and persuading others. I like how he fully explains the topics, but also provides real world examples that we can use immediately.

Persuasion with Integrity and Character

It's OK. There's a few good take aways, but the course doesn't really burn into your memory for its high value. Still, worth the money as it does teach a number of good concepts.

Be more authentic

This course is amazing! Mr. Bahl is a very knowledgeable person on the subject. He presents the contents slowly and clearly. Also, he introduces examples to illustrate his points. This course makes you think about all the factors that come into play when dealing with persuasive messages, and how they affect you.

Best book i have read this year

A good course with clear logical progression through each section. Definitely a good course to enhance understanding of persuasion techniques. Great if you're interested in sales, less so if you're more interested in self-development.
