    Speaking the language of Influence

    A student of Neurolinguistic Programming would find this book an interesting addition to their study of success through communications.

    Breaking down the systems of preferences through neuro codes, the authors provide a quick insight to how the brain stores information, and how successful communicators in fundraising utilize the key sensory patterns.

    Visual, auditory and kinaesthetic patterns of words offer the coding key of our bio-computer. If you look at my words you will begin to see and hear how NLP works, to build rapport and influence.

    Ross and Segal provide another look into the brain, and successful communications.
