5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good especially for beginners, 26. Januar 2014

It is not common sense what you can find in this book.
Even if you are a writer you may not know enough and then your story... sucks.
I am happy I had a chance to read this book. It has opened my eyes to some things, that for many writers seem o obvious.
If you do not know HOW to construct a good story-then you should get this book.
If you know unconsciously but not consciously- then get this book.
For me it was an educational pleasure!

3.0 von 5 Sternen Idea good. Poor delivery., 20. Januar 2014
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I do not know what to say about this book.
It is nothing more than a sort of boring dialogue between author and "God".
It reminds me of the book by Jan Van Helsing "Wer hat Angst vorm schwarzen Mann?", although Van Helsing's book was better written (although illogical and in my opinion... Stupid).
I do not want to discuss if the author was really talking to God or to his imagined guide.
Being an expert in creativity field I know methods of talking to inner guides (creating them in order to get in touch with your subconscious mind). I have seen much better effects of such work for instance: depth of thoughts, differences in "characters", great insights.
As for me so called "God" seems to me to be extremely flat. "He" is not different from the author. He does not offer any insights except of those you can find in thousands of other books.
Even if we have a look at teachings of Abraham we see great though processes there.
What I saw here is a kind of causual and boring conversation between author himself... because there is NO DIFFERENCE between him and "God".
Honestly: everyone is able to create so flat dialogues but at least does not try to say that it was talking to "God".
I write my impressions only. The idea was probably good but it's boring like hell. Unbearable after a few pages.
Causual talk between two guys on the street may be more interesting and contain more insight that this book.
I leave it up to you if you want to read it.

BTW. Here is "god". I do not know what this guy who has written the book is talking about. I allow myself to not know because I am almighty if you want. Being a god I can know and do not know at the same time and without any time.

I read a lot about marketing. After reading 100 hundred within last few months THIS IS THE BEST ONE.
It has opened my eyes. Now I understand why so many people are hooked to their smartphones. Why so many people are hooked to some products. And HOW it could be done if I have my own business.
Thank you for this!
I would love to repeat thousand times: EYE OPENING BOOK.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating tool, 11. Januar 2014
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I believe that it's easier to use printed version because Kindle is not yet ready to deal with jumping between pages but it does not have any relationship with THE VALUE of the book.
To put it clearly. Fun and productive.
Based on some instructions (which maybe are not so clear when you read for the first time because it's hard to explain advanced "system" in a few words) I created SEVERAL GREAT PLOTS within about 2hrs.
A lot of fun and triggers for your imagination.

This book WILL NOT WRITE A BOOK FOR YOU.
This book WILL NOT GIVE YOU A "READY" TO USE PLOT.
THIS BOOK WILL TRIGGER YOUR IMAGINATION AND GIVE YOU ENOUGH IDEAS TO USE IN YOUR BOOK.

If you are a person who expects that software or "system" will replace your work then do not buy this book.
This is for true writers not idiots.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Stay away from a guide that may confuse and harm, 11. Januar 2014
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I respect the intention of the author to create a helpful book.
The book was being offered for free one day and because I am working as an NLP Master, hypnotherapist for so many years (and English is not my promary language) I wanted to have a look.
Here is what I think.
1. I've got an impression that the book was written by the person who merely copied some stuff from internet without ANY basic knowledge about the topic.
2. The book is inconsistent and vague.
Here is an example:

CONTRADICTION 1: The Author says that affirmations have to be positive and then writes example of an affirmation:
<< For example, if you are likely to turn down opportunities, when you begin to regularly affirm that, “I am not afraid and will begin take more risks”, then the next time someone invites you to a new business opportunity, you will now have the guts to take (snip)...>>>

If you create affirmation of this kind you are nothing more than affirming fear and risks on a subconscious level.
Our subconscious mind DOES NOT UNDERSTAND "NO" and this means that subconscious mind has to process the whole message, and "NO" does not have any meaning. Your brain in order to process such affirmation has to recall and think about "being afraid" and "more risks". Your brain in order to understand the affirmation has to CREATE MEANINGFUL IMAGES OF FEAR AND RISKS.
That's the first contradiction proving that our author did not even try to think what he is talking about.
To add even more to the first contradiction here is another example of pseudo-positive affirmation: “I am a smart and strong person capable of overcoming this financial obstacle”... Let me guess... your mind has to think about "financial obstacles", right? The affirmation implies that you stay IN FRONT OF THE OBSTACLE. HM... Fascinating. Thank you very much for such help.
I am not a green elephant. I will not be a green elephant but maybe in present tense... I am?
Funny. Go to school dear autor and ask for some basic training in READING and WRITING with UNDERSTANDING.

2. CONTRADICTION 2: Author says that all affirmations have to be used in PRESENT TENSE.
English is not my primary language (as I mentioned) but even so I could clearly see that something does not make sense here. Just have a look at the affirmation above!
“I am not afraid and will begin take more risks” PRESENT TENSE? Give me a break!

In first chapters of the book author promises how to create affirmations that are believable and this may be concluded:
If you want to create an affirmation and believe in this affirmation you have to... BELIEVE.

Last conclusion. You will not find any valuable exercises helping you to overcome the typical problem that affirmations are at the beginning hard to swallow and believe.
Author suggests writing them down and repeating.
And this method is widely known as BS and not working.
You may repeat million times "I am a green elephant" and write billion times "I am a green elephant" and it will not cause any changes in your mindset. Your fingers will hurt. And eyes.
If you want to make affirmations powerful than you need to know at least MINIMUM about beliefs and how they work.
And at least you have to think about consequences of any so called "positive statement".
To have some fun some pseudo-positive statements for you.

"I will be a good author who does not have any strong difficulties with understanding what I am talking about"
or
"I will overcome all my obstacles and problems I have and will never be negative".

Thank you.
Go to rewriting my friend. Ask for some feedback before you publish anything more.
Do some reasearch and UNDERSTAND FIRST WHAT YOU HAVE FOUND.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Simple, short, clear and good., 30. Dezember 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
I believe that I have said everything. Easy to read advice supported with real examples.
Most important factors covered (writing an effective title, description etc).
Basics of business or if you prefer - marketing.
It is absolutely enough if you have an idea and want to have a good start.

What this book IS NOT ABOUT? It is not a book of ideas you can sell. It says HOW to sell your ideas but you must create your own ideas. This is important to understand. This book does not tell you "what" you can sell but "how" you can sell.
If you want to get a list of ideas for products... then you have to grab a pen and write down everything that comes within next few weeks:)
Thank you for the book. It was helpful.


The Law of Attraction for Children

1.0 von 5 Sternen Extremely disappointed., 21. Mai 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
With the respect to the idea, to "good will" of the author... I decided to ask for refund.
It is not enough to know something about the topic to write a good book for children. Children's books require sometimes more talent to write them, than books for adults.
Boring as hell because... There is no story. No well created characters. Almost all existing and very "poor" characters talk the same... Artificial way.
I would suggest to the author, to take some courses or read about writing for kids.
I would suggest to get some knowledge about plots, characters, dynamics and TARGET.
I would suggest to go to the kindergarten and TALK to kids before writing anything.

One of the most important rules to create a children's story is a STORY... Not just "talking".
Talking heads... who are talking using artificial expressions.
Sorry. Wasted time for any reader. With the whole respect to your good will dear author.

Simply poor preaching. No plot, just talking. Written in language which children do not use. "Wooden" dialogs. Poor... Poor... pooooooooooooooooooooooooooor.

The most funny thing comes now.
English is not my first language. I have read hundreds of books in English and if I was able to recognize problems within the book as a "foreigner", then this must be a real problem.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Crispy information. Direct, nice written and full of good tips, 30. April 2013
Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf(Was ist das?)
This book has helped me to understand many problems related to dialogues.
Well written, good and direct information with clear examples and explanation.
This was exactly what I wanted. Not "theory supported by theory" but simply to the point.
Most of the books contain too much personal considerations and theories instead of information.
But definitely not this one.
I would recommend it to anyone who wants to write better dialogues for screen or stage.
Well done. 5 starts with no single doubt!
