Reviews

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.

CGW Publishing took us seriously right from the offset, and we have had the best guidance and help you could possibly imagine. We've never done anything like this before and we never in our wildest dreams believed we'd ever write a book, but hey we did and then the search began for a professional to jump onboard and advise us and that's exactly what our publishers have done. Christopher is not only knowledgeable but he can read our minds, he knows what is needed and his suggestions have always been brilliant.

A wealth of new insights and ideas, Change Magic represents a different approach so that you can take away your own unique interpretations and apply them into the real world of organisational change.

Peter Harty, MD, Innervision Performance Coaching

It has been a steep learning curve for me. The input from CGW made me revisit the style and format of the book which, now published, is very different from the original look that it had before working with them.

I have a large library of NLP books and find most of them repeating the same things over and over with slight differences. Your book, however, presents the information in a fresh and new way of writing that brings back the excitement of learning NLP modelling and applications. I have seldom been WOWed by NLP books after I attended the Master Prac Track of training other than the Turtles All the Way Down book by Grinder and DeLozier. Your Master Prac book has been full of one AHA after another. Your explanations are more effective and instructional than any others I've read .... and I've read most of them. I know of no NLP organization that has expressed such a thorough knowledge and been able to adequately express it as you have.This is another exceptional book by an exceptional author, trainer and consultant.

I have no doubt that Peter Freeth is on course to be one of the most influential and effective leadership guides of the early 21st century. If you've encountered Peter before, you’ll probably already have this book. If you haven’t – be prepared for a fundamental shift in your approach to business. He really is that good.

David Nicoll, MD Certax Accounting

Peter gift wraps startling ideas with great entertainment, In the hands of another, less intelligent writer, this kind of book could become incoherent, but Peter has enough intellectual power to make this a 'MUST HAVE BOOK'... Change Magic has conviction, style, knowledge and humour.

Michael Flaherty, Practice Manager (RAMC) 29 Commando Regt (RA)

After hearing positive remarks about this book through repeated mentions on various forums, blogs, etc., I made the purchase.

Peter Freeth has a clear writing style that feels like a relaxed conversation between the author and reader. The chapters aren't filled with unnecessary dialogue in an attempt to be overly complex. The material is very thorough, well structured and clear...and the exercises included are relevant to the material presented in the prior chapter. Hard to put down.

With about 20 NLP books on my "shelf", this is one I wish I had purchased earlier in the game.
