There is a looong, bizarre online exchange featuring Ben Mack, aka "Love" -- in a forum about a book called "Principia Discordia". It appears that Mr. Mack went to the forum in hopes of marketing his book, "Poker Without Cards". [www.principiadiscordia.com] He mentions Dave Lakhani at least once in that forum. In one of his initial posts, Mack says something

Still more about "Dr." Ben Mack.... In November 2007, Mr. Lakhini wrote a blog,"Ben Mack Deconstructed by Dave Lakhani". I just did something very dangerous, I deconstructed a friend. Frankly, I'm not sure how things will turn out as a result of this but I did it because he is so misunderstood. And frankly, that is partly his fault. Ben lives out loud, he lives his

More about "Dr." Ben Mack.... Apparently on 1/31-2/1/09, Ben Mack held an "ESP BootCamp". (There's that term "Boot Camp" again.) Dave Lakhani was a speaker at that event.

It seems that Dave Lakhani has been very impressed with someone named Ben Mack. Such that he has worked alongside him, as well as commissioned Mack to write the "Afterword" to his book, "Subliminal Persuasion." Time to take a look at "Dr." Ben Mack. According to Ben Mack, Joe "Mr. Fire" Vitale is one heck of a guy! Joe Vitale has of course be

Good point, Sparky. We've been honing in on Dave Lakhani, and Mark Joyner as well as others have popped up in relation to him. It gets a bit tricky because these guys often seem to be splashing around in the same pool. I guess we can see if enough information emerges to warrant a new thread. Thanks!

An unhappy reader of Mark Joyner's "Simpleology" felt compelled to start a "discussion" of the book at Amazon: Is This Book A Scam? Is this book for real? Every review is five stars, and most of them appear to be from authors and people related to "simple ology." (from Patrick R. Bowman) Someone called "Hopefully Helpful" responds to this disc

A little more about Kevin Hogan's "Boot Camp".... He says the "keynote speaker" is Mark Joyner. (Lakhani is also speaking there.) Let's take a little look at Joyner. As with Hogan and Lakhani, there's a lot of hype on Amazon. Thankfully that's not all you'll find. Here are some Amazon reviewers' comments/criticisms re Mark Joyner’s boo

The Anticult, I find this quote from Lakhani to be a key phrase: "Your emotions are screaming" Is that really what we as consumers want? For our emotions to be "screaming"? Because of the various actions of a person SELLING things to us for HIS benefit? ($$$) Speaking for myself, that is NOT what I want. I don't want some manipulative sales guy "persuading&q

Human nature, Shadow. It ain't easy getting by in this world. So people look for ways to get ahead. Other people invent ways to get ahead, or more likely, ways that SEEM like they can put you ahead. You just need to shell out $$$ for this, that and the other product to get where you want to be. If unsuspecting consumers don't get what they want.... well, it's their proble

The other day I did some checking of Lakhini's website. A whole bunch of links weren't working. (Maybe that has since changed?) So I did a little checking of Kevin Hogan's website too. What a shocker, someone else has also provided a bunch of LINKS THAT DON'T WORK. The following links for testimonials on Kevin Hogan's home page DO NOT WORK as of this writing:

Kevin Hogan keeps popping up in connection with Dave Lakhani. (Those two just love to give each other 5-star reviews on Amazon.) Hogan is holding an "Influence: Boot Camp" on March 10-13, 2010 in Las Vegas, and Lakhani is speaking there. The website is LOADED with info. Very confusing to try and take it all in.

Yes, Lakhani has claimed he is a cult expert: "Sorry to disappoint you guys, but I took many courses on cult investigation while I worked in law enforcement, particularly satanic groups and conducted investigations.

Good show, Stoic! It'll be fantastic if the blog owner of "Exploring The Mind" listens to you and posts a WARNING about the Cult Awareness Network in a prominent place. I'd like to think that the blog owner will be just as concerned as Mr. Lakhani says he is about the problem with CAN... seeing as Mr. Lovitch felt it important to blog the interview with Mr. Lakhani.

It is unfortunate indeed that Lakhani's retraction about CAN appears in the comments rather than right next to the audio. That interview can be accessed without even seeing any comments. What if people simply don't click on the comments? Also, people would have to have the patience to read through a long, long string of comments to get to Lakhani's. His comment re CAN is the 86

For the record.... I notice that someone has been tinkering with the content of Mr. Lakhani's "client" web page today. Earlier it said, "Our Featured Clients" at the top. Now it says, "Some of Our Past Clients". As if that will help mitigate part of the criticism of the page I voiced earlier?

Mr. Lakhani claims that he is a hugely successful businessman, making up to twice as much in one day as the typical American makes in 2 years. So... one would expect to find an incredible array of "clients" on Mr. Lakhani's web page devoted to that. In actuality, there are some big problems with that client page. For example, some of the links are dead. Would not a reputa
