Book Recommendation: Mind Programming
I hope you’re having a Super Thursday!
Today is a bonus post, so that I can tell you about my colleague Eldon Taylor and his brand new book, Mind Programming: From Persuasion and Brainwashing to Self-Help. If you already subscribe to my free LearnToPersuade.com mini course, you’ve read my message about this already. If not, read on. Because this is a really interesting book, and a good followup to my own book on the Insider’s Guide To The Art of Persuasion, many authors, myself included, have joined together to support this book launch.
“As you read this book, you’ll feel the blinders being removed and you will truly see the world in an entirely new light.” – Jeff Warrick, – documentary filmmaker, Programming the Nation
Eldon seeks to expose groups ranging from media types to governmental agencies that have spent billions of dollars learning how to surreptitiously gain access to your thoughts, your motivations and your choices. As he says it, “See for yourself in the ‘smoking gun’ of advertising manuals, in the secret clandestine work of governmental agencies, in the neuro-technology labs of the sellers of goods and services.”
Some people will be shocked and horrified at the extent a few have gone to shape every aspect of your thinking. For some of us, it is no surprise that this kind of social programming goes on everyday. I think it’s worth educating yourself about this subject, and while Eldon goes further in his conclusions than I would, I still think it’s a good way to expand your knowledge of the issue.
“Brainwashing and marketing are big business; and your precious mind is a coveted commodity. In this book Eldon Taylor exposes all and tells you how to take your power back and be free to become your own best self. Eldon is a grand master of the mind.” Joan Borysenko, Ph.D. – author of Your Soul’s Compass
Mind Programming is really two books in one. The first half of the book is the tell-all story that uncovers the unseen influences that are so pervasive, penetrating and effective. The second half of the book is all about the tools and technologies you can use to cleanse your mind of the nonsense.
After considering the content provided in this book, you may find yourself wondering: How many original thoughts do you really have? How many thoughts about your limitations, your fears, your anxieties are there naturally, and how many because others wish you to be concerned with them? From sickness and anxiety to the way you comb your hair and dress, you have been trained to think and choose, and the book offers some very simple easy-to-use tools that can help you free your mind.
“In a period when fear has reached a frenzied pitch, Taylor shines a brilliant spotlight to dispel the darkness!” Angelina Heart – author of The Teaching of Little Crow
I’ve written of some of these techniques in my book, Insider’s Guide To The Art Of Persuasion. But even if you already have some awareness of the everyday mind manipulation techniques, and are already guarding against these intrusions, there likely are areas you simply have not heard of.
The book also covers numerous tools and techniques to assist you in taking back the control of your mind, ranging from exercises that won’t cost you a cent, to high tech yet affordable tools. And Mind Programming ships with a free, high-tech, mind-training CD, that utilizes some of this technology.
Be warned: The book goes further in its analysis than I would, and delves into ‘metaphysical’ concepts on occasion that really aren’t my cup of tea. But taken on the whole of it, I think it’s a worthwhile read. I have joined with other authors in supporting this launch, and when you purchase the book, it comes with some nice bonuses. For example:
1) You have a chance to win 2 tickets to a Hay House conference. Everyone who orders Mind Programming between May 19th and June 17th can enter to win a trip to the I CAN DO IT Conference in Tampa, Florida where Eldon will be appearing in November. (Trip includes 2 full conference tickets, hotel accommodations, and round-trip domestic coach airfare).
2) You will be entered to win Eldon’s success library, Your Personal Best, featuring 28 programs on 20 CDs
3) You get to attend a free pre-screening of Jeff Warrick’s mind-blowing documentary, Programming The Nation.
4) You gain free membership to Eldon’s Mind Matters community, where you will find numerous gifts valued at over $5000
PLUS (and it’s a big plus!) : For every book sold during this launch, Eldon will be donating all of his author proceeds to Women for Women International, an award-winning non-profit organization. Women for Women provides women survivors of war, civil strife and other conflicts with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency, thereby promoting viable civil societies.
I think that’s pretty cool and I support this effort. So I encourage you to act now and get your copy today.
“It’s only your mind if you manage what goes into it, otherwise it is analogous to a computer that the world has read and write access to.” Eldon Taylor – author of Choices and Illusions and Mind Programming
