Review: Law of Connection by Michael Losier

Over the years, Michael Losier earned a reputation as "the Law of Attraction How-To Guy," the first to turn Law of Attraction concepts and principles into practical tips and advice that are useful in daily life. Now, he's using the same listener-friendly approach to help people start or improve relationships at home and in the workplace the right way: by using the interpersonal communication model known as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

With Law of Connection, people will:

  • Understand the four different communication styles (visual, auditory, kinesthenic, and auditory digital); learn the strengths and weaknesses of each style; and know where and when to implement which style
  • Discover how to apply language strategies and recognize patterns (reframing, pacing, installing, presupposing, chunking up/down)
  • Become experts at building, breaking, and repairing rapport
Each section is complete with:
  • easy-to-grasp explanations
  • examples of everyday and modeling conversations
Law of Attraction showed listeners how to attract what they want. Law of Connection will teach them how to ensure that the relationships they attract will be harmonious, productive, and profitable.

Received from the publisher for review.

This was the unabridged audiobook on CD edition (3 CDs/2.5 hours).

The audiobook was read by the author. Normally this would be a good thing, but this particular author had a rather whiny voice. Thankfully I only had to listen to him for three discs!

The "Expert Edward" section was helpful, in that it provided an "in context" discussion of the four communication styles in action. Unfortunately for me, I apparently don't fit into any of the styles (surprise, surprise!). :) I gather I have qualities of each style with no dominant style. Guess I'm unique!

Obviously the author has never attended corporate training events as he's regurgitating the techniques that all corporate trainers use and that all attendees hate. These techniques have the trainers treating the attendees as kindergartners instead of the adults they actually are. I sincerely hope no trainer actually follows his deluded suggestions.

This one gets six stars. This is essentially a boring collection of information intended for salespeople or trainers. It provides no real new or interesting information to the reader. Also, I have no clue why this is called Law of Connection as it seems to have nothing to do with any Law of Attraction techniques I've ever read about.

Rating: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
