The words were out. My mouth was dry, my heart was thumping, and my despair was clearly visible.

And so began Trudie and Lloyd Thompson's heart breaking 12 year journey of IVF treatment, losing a business and even bankruptcy.

They saved us months of work in understanding the many mysteries around getting a book ready for print, going above and beyond in the graphics work, proofing editing and both text and eBook formatting. We remain very grateful to them for all their hard work.

Actionable insights and usual compelling writing. Peter Freeth has a talent to involve the reader and give in a compelling way concepts and knowledge. This book really helps in the practice of modelling and it was a relevant step forward in my NLP practice. If you are serious on NLP you cannot miss this.

Giuliano Papadia

Genius at Work takes a fresh look at how to build an effective and committed workforce. Through relevant case studies Peter Freeth illustrates a sensible and engaging way to maximise the existing talent within an organisation rather than relying on the constantly changing trends of business and talent management theories. The theories and case studies Peter uses in his book demonstrate to be highly practical with a very positive impact and outcome. I would recommend any HR professional who is looking for insight into building a talent management strategy to read Genius at Work.

If I wanted to read a book that would help me triumph over adversity, this would be it. So often this type of book can be maudling, but this one tells you in simple terms that if you set your mind to something you CAN do it (my capitals, not those of the authors). It reminded me of Jeffrey Archer's first book - the story of his own determination to triumph over bankruptcy - "Not A Penny More, Not A Penny Less". I say that, not because the authors' own experiences were in any way similar to his. But because in their own way, in their very different social situation, they did it too. Well done to them - and thanks for the read!

Boross is the boss when it comes to successful, effective, memorable pitching. Gavin Duffy, Dragon's Den Ireland

Change Magic is not just another book about how to think outside the box. No check list or recipes to follow but definitely full of ideas that challenge your established routines and conventional thinking. No matter how successful you have been in the business world, a must read for all. Very inspiring book... should be given to all employees and managers at every level of the organization when they come on board.

Jean-Baptiste Gruet, VP Global Sales, Workplace Options

This book cuts through the smoke and mirrors and delivers a very simple fictional story that anyone who works in manufacturing can relate to and at the same time gives you a very simplified explanation as to how to improve your situation. A great little book, read it in one sitting.

Sean Butler

This thought provoking book challenges leaders to think and take action if they are to improve the offering and performance of their organisation: their brand. The Business Cohesion Model should be read and acted on by every Chief Executive and their senior leadership teams.

Good enough to be a beach read.

The explanations about the concepts of NLP are easy to understand and the examples are helpful. I have read other books and until now this is the best for practitioners.
