Although it doesn’t have a ton of reviews on Amazon, it’s *really* good. As Dan says in the front-cover testimonial: “The rare book that is both practical and profound.”
Michael Pantalon is an award-winning faculty member at Yale School of Medicine. He’s also a motivational coach, consultant and therapist.
His “Instant Influence” process has been installed in places as diverse as General Electric and your local Emergency Room to addiction recovery centers and probation departments.
