Joe Vitale.
Now this guy is smart.
Not just smart – super smart.
I mean he has very intelligently tilted a book on copywriting as ‘Hypnotic writing’
Oh my goodness!
I can just imagine what it had done for his book sales.
In fact, I myself got attracted to the title simply because of that very small change in the title.

Coming to the book itself.
56 Chapters, 262 pages.
Most of the chapters around one or two pages with only one chapter going up to say 10 pages.
The chapters are easy to read, have ple
Książka jest dobra, z tym że są to w większości rady jak rozkręcić jakiś interes (internetowy). Tym niemniej to są na pewno dobre rady, gdybym tylko wszystkie zapamiętał ;)
Mam o tyle problem z takimi książkami, że wynoszę z nich na ogół po jednej radzie, jakimś jednym aspekcie... Ale sądzę, że to i tak o jeden więcej niż przed przeczytaniem! Tą sobie na pewno zachowam, bo jeśli się kiedyś zdecyduję na biznes internetowy, to na pewno jeszcze do niej wrócę i mi się przyda. Póki co mogę trochę potr

Joe Vitale lewat tulisannya kali ini mengungkapkan keajaiban tulisan yang menghipnotis siapa saja untuk bertindak sekarang juga. Pemikiran Joe Vitale ini kemudian menjadi role model bagi para internet marketing untuk membuat sebuah tulisan efektif yang mampu mengikat pelanggannya.

Kesan pertama ketika saya membaca buku ini cukup mengesankan karena selain memberi contoh, Vitale juga mengajak kita untuk berlatih membuat tulisan seperti dirinya. Pintarnya Vitale menyuruh kalimat-kalimat yang sebenar
For a book saying it is going to teach you about hypnotic writing I got reaaally bored by the 50th page. And I only got there by sheer willpower, waiting for the good stuff.
Also, a lot of useful techniques and information, from what I've read.
I will probably give it another shot in the future sometime, maybe I just wasn't in the right mood.
I would like to say that I think this is a good and useful book but it is not what I was looking for.
The first quarter of the book is very weak though. The author basically keeps repeating nonstop how good he is, he is the master of hypnotical writing and has a lot of experience. I started to think this book was a waste of time and money. (For this alone, two stars less) It gets better with the beginning of chapter 14 where it starts to give you actual tips and advice how to improve your writing
poor. a bunch a blah blah. says almost nothing. a bad summary of other, better writing books. "Use hypnotic words like amazing, astounding, and new." really. those are hypnotic? oh boy ...
Tanner Kauffman
Great book on sales copy, marketing, persuasion and all of that good stuff. He gives you some key strategies that marketers use to when writing sales copy for products.
Jeremy Matters
Does spend a bit too long setting you up, but, it's a very entertaining ride. And, unlike most books on writing copy, it is actually helpful. Vitale peels away the b.s. and really gives you what you're looking for: actual methods for using buyer psychology to write better ads.

May not be a great book for brainstorming techniques, but gives a huge number of methods for using word-judo, overcoming resistance, taking advantage of reader momentum, seizing attention and holding on to it.

After reading
Hypnotic Writing is a great book to refine your writing focused on getting you more clients. However, for me, I found it repetitive because many of the things that the author was teaching people to do are things that you learn when writing proposals. Don't get me wrong. The book is definitely a must-read for everyone in business, especially for people whose job description doesn't include writing. He taught many basic rules that are you need to learn in order to write an effective copy. For inst ...more

I must admit the title was an intriguing one. But after reading the first 6 chapters, I realised it wsa all hype. By the time I got to the 6th chapter, I still couldn't find exactly what he ws trying to say. It was all noise, hype, BS, whatever you would call it. Nothing earthshaking, and indeed a poor excuse for a book. I am returning it to the store. If you can't engage a discerning reader within 3 chapters, you have failed.

I have enjoyed everything I have read by Joe Vitale because he is generous with his information. This book leaves me interested but also curious about right use of words in marketing. It bridged some gaps for me between my writing and my ad copy, but it left me wondering about the ethics of language in marketing.
A lot of useful information here. Recommended to anyone who writes. Geared toward advertising writing. Good pointers for blog and website writing. Almost good enough for a 4 star rating. I just took 10 pages of notes for future reference, then it will go back to the library.

Quite an interesting book about how to write and make sure what you write is being read. Everyone can pick this book up and read them though the contents are geared towards the commercial side of things.

Nonetheless, I find this book revealing as well as practical.
Actually, I can not imagine if I live without writing something.

I am so curious to explore my hand-writing talent and....
this outstanding book helps me to finish what I've been made.
Khenpo Gurudas

This is, by far, my favourite book that Joe Vitale has ever written. Clear, practical and insightful, I use this advice all the time now.

And the payoff is immediate!
Artur Sabirov
В книжке отличные приемы по написанию текстов. А вот представленные рекламные слоганы не всегда подойдут по наши реалии. У российского народа больше скептицизма.
The style of writing he advocates is a little overwhelming, but being able to drop a few of the strategies into persuasive writing seems to be worth the read.
Hayden Chance
There are some really good points in here about how to write hypnotically. Quite frankly, more "bestselling authors" should read this book.
Many tips provided by Joe Vitale to give "life" to your writing
To make it "eye catchy", "interesting", "ringing", and off course "HYPNOTIC"

Essential for anyone engaged in persuasive writing: sales, grants, love letters, etc. Sometimes seems a bit "hokey", yet more often stimulating.
It had a lot of good ideas that I've tried to put into practice. Like another book I've read by Joe Vitale, it could get repetitive.
Joan Adams
Admittedly, Joe's books are a bit self-promotional, but I always learn a few new techniques/motivators.
Tome Beka
As a translator and public speaker, this book helps me a lot. You should read it!
