The Power of An Hour: Business and Life Mastery in One Hour A Week (Hardcover)
by Dave Lakhani (Author)
The forward to this book by Dave Lakhani is by T. Harv Eker.
The writing by T. Harv Eker is highly manipulative, and he is trying many embedded suggestions, pretty close to the level that James Arthur Ray does them.
Dave Lakhani also thanks Joe Vitale in the book, and Vitale is another brazen scam-artist.
The book opens up with the standard self-promotion material by Lakhani. He pretty much looks like another guy who is copying what Tony Robbins did.
Tony Robbins also used to teach the persuasion skills he used years ago, but took that off the market, and probably just teaches it now behind closed doors for 10x the inflated price.
This page by Dave Lakhani, has some very manipulative techniques on it. Notice he puts Tony Robbins name on the top of the list, and he is using NLP based techniques right in his own marketing material.
As well as Scarcity, and other tactics.
He also makes it sound "exclusive", like he won't take your $3,500 for a 3 day LGAT seminar, and has to "interview" you first. Yeah right! That is the sucker-test.
Lakhani is running a 3 day LGAT, for over $3,000, plus all the other junk you are going to buy there, and be upsold to.
Dave Lakhani might appear to be explaining some of the persuasion techniques, but he is also using many of them, and not explaining them as he is using them.
So far many red flags are flying, and one has to be extremely careful with the material of Dave Lakhani, you can get sucked right into membership based "coaching", which is where you pay to get sold more junk.
This is Tony Robbins all over again.
