Summary

What if I were to tell you that a psychopathic arsonist might also be the person most likely to save you from a burning building? This book is about a special kind of persuasion: 'flipnosis'. It has an incubation period of just seconds and can instantly disarm even the most discerning mind.

Flipnosis is black-belt mind control. It doesn't just turn the tables; it kicks them over.

Critic reviews

Not Dr Kevin Dutton's best audiobook

The narration is not as good as the books read by the author Dr Kevin Dutton.

The material itself is alright; but ,for me , Dr Dutton's work with Andy McNab is the gold.

Have you been Flipnotised?

Having enjoyed the collaboration of Kev Dutton and Andy McNab in which Flipnosis is referred to many times I thought it would be worth a try. Nothing really that different in here. If you have enjoyed the Good Psychopaths Guide to Success - don’t bother with this one. Many of the same stories, anecdotes and examples. A great collection of other people’s research but little new.
The narrators need to put on accents when during examples and anecdotes is also a little wearing.

Nice

Very good book but I wish it was easier to comprehend. He starts with an example but doesn’t explain it leaving the listener to figure it out. Hard to connect the dots.

Fascinating listening

brilliant book, well written and David Timson is always good to listen to. Lots of small stories throughout that are very much to the point of the main topic

have I read this before

this book was a great source of knowledge. some if not many of the ideas detailed here, although slightly different, I came across in the "Thinking Fast and Slow” by Daniel Kahneman.

both are great books

Interesting book and would benefit from more practical guidance

A very interesting book with a number of funny anecdotes. Outlines a very interesting model of persuasion- it would be great to have more practical and detailed guidance on how to apply the model to everyday typical challenges
