The Pitching Bible is an enjoyable and thought-provoking book that is written with clarity, insight and humour. It takes you on an illuminating journey through the seven secrets of a successful business pitch. Paul Boross explains that he learned the hard way about what does and does not work when pitching. As a consequence he has used his vast and varied experience to create a book that is overflowing with practical ideas and techniques for preparing and delivering a winning pitch.
With subtlety and skill the book challenges the assumptions that the reader brings to it. To support this process Paul regularly offers questioning, reflection and information points for the reader. You are encouraged to work your way through each `secret' and reflect upon your thinking and practice in key areas of pitching. For example, when do you think a pitch actually begins? Who is vital in the process of making you win a pitch, is it you or is it your audience? How is it possible to always remain in control of your pitch? What type of language makes you more persuasive when pitching? Paul Boross offers solutions to every question that he raises. What I like about his solutions is that they are based on real-world experience and have real-world application.
This is an impressive book that actively engages you as a reader. When you finish reading The Pitching Bible you will notice that there is an eighth `secret'...buying a copy of this book will give you a competitive edge when pitching and will help you win more business. I recommend that you buy one.

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.

Working with CGW has been pleasurable and educational. They have been responsive and timely and have guided me through the publishing and marketing process. Being a first time author, I have learned a great deal about writing style, structuring the content, creating a book that is marketable and appealing. I’m sure there’s more to come – I just don’t know, what I don’t know – yet!

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.
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.
I have received the book 'Unsticker' by Peter Freeth Expert in High Performers, Author, Coach. It's amazing book. It has tons of questions to make me powerful problem solver. The questions are easy to understand and very helpful to be more creative. A question on each page make this book unique. One of the coolest thing about this book is that you don't need to read from the begining to end. You can pick up any 2-5 pages (2-5 questions) and they are good enough to solve your problems. Almost everyone should have this book with them all the time. Much recommended.

There are few books that help you maximize your company's resources to the fullest. Highly Recommended!
For any business manager or owner who has ignored the importance of fostering a culture within their organization that is closely aligned with the goals, values and vision of their company, Roger's book is a must read.

Jaw-droppingly simple but fabulously effective. Time Out
The Pitching Bible presents a very clear and easy to follow method for taking your pitch and refining it to ensure every possibility that's under your control is covered. Crucially, it doesn't 'dumb down' its approach or tell you what to say - so you still have to work at developing your pitch.
