This is truly a new and effective approach to copywriting, which I strongly recommend you learn. It's pure genius.» -Joseph Sugarman, author of Triggers «I've read countless book on persuasion, but none come close to this one in showing you exactly how to put your readers into a buying trance that makes whatever you are offering them irresistible.» -David Garfinkel, author of Advertising Headlines That Make You Rich «I am a huge fan of Vitale and his books, and Hypnotic Writing (first published more than twenty years ago), is my absolute favorite. Updated with additional text and fresh examples, especially from e-mail writing, Joe's specialty, Hypnotic Writing is the most important book on copywriting (yes, that's really what it is about) to be published in this century. Read it. It will make you a better copywriter, period.» -Bob Bly, copywriter and author of The Copywriter's Handbook «I couldn't put this book down. It's eye opening and filled with genuinely new stuff about writing and persuading better. And it communicates it brilliantly and teaches it brilliantly-exemplifying the techniques by the writing of the book itself as you go along.» -David Deutsch, author of Think Inside the Box, www.thinkinginside.com «Hypnotic Writing is packed with so much great information it's hard to know where to start.
