AUDIO TAPE - NOT A BOOK
JUST MAKE SURE YOU REALISE THIS IS AN AUDIO TAPE OF POOR QUALIY AND NOT A BOOK AS IT LOOKS LIKE!
BOTTLED IN BOND--A COMPENDIUM OF GOLDEN GURU ADVICE
Overall, an excellent cd packed with good solid advice--motivational and concrete practical. BUT the David Hedison intro was a complete waste of time, and had me yelling "Hellllp Meeeee..."
The marketing technique of taking much of the standard golden guru wisdom and spray painting James Bond's image over it, is quite clever. There's not a lot of new stuff here, but all the classic self-help advice is convenient to have in one package.
However, if you are going to call this a James Bond Lifestyle, and give advice of don't drink, don't smoke, don't speed--maybe you are talking the James Bond at his real present age--somewhere in his 90s.
There was a lot more that could have been put in the cds--more specific websites for the kind of stuff that the author recommends you get. Also, there are intelligence related organizations that wannabes can join to rub up their spy image. (I could tell you which ones, but then I'd have to kill you).
Bond, would have been in reality, an intelligence disaster, if he were a case officer. Much too showy, too noticeable.He would be more of the paramilitary type dressed in a tux.
As far as the secret to getting women--watch the films--Bond was charming, but exuded a polite indifference to many of the women--and women HATE indifference--until they are intrigued by it.(Check out Daniel Craig in the train to Montenegro dining car scene in Casino Royale with "the money.")
Spend all your cash on some lady, providing fun travel and entertainment?Sure--AFTER you've gotten to know her, and after you've gotten the sex out of the way, as one of my pals in Denmark used to say.There's plenty of cool stuff to do with the nubile newbies that doesn't cost all that much. (Fashion shows, gallery receptions, trade shows, wine tastings,etc.)
The tips on dressing--YES. Once on a cruise in the Bahamas, I was thinking I couldn't score with a fistful of pardons in a woman's penitentiary, when one night I slipped into a Tux and strutted around the casino, like I belonged there. Scored a home run in less than an hour, and discovered that not all women from Arkansas look like Hillary Clinton."Fashion helps," as Peter Weller said in "Shadow Hours." (And I look a lot more like Telly Savalas as Blofeld, than I do James Bond). Wanna make your foreign travel even more interesting--contact the trade mission or commercial attache' of the country you want to visit, and get some business leads relevant to your gig before you travel.Not only will you likely get VIP treatment when in country visiting your contacts, you can possibly write off part of the trip on your tax return.Did that when I went to Singapore, and had a grand old time. Anyway, you will enjoy this tape, follow its directions (but caveat credit card spender) and you will benefit. Within 24 hours of listening to the CD, I'm getting results already.Take your gold sovreign and get this program, so Goldfinger won't point a laser beam at your "gun."
Upgrade your lifestyle!
This audiobook is not what you might expect.Of course I'm a Bond fan which brought my attention to this in the first place but, Mr. Kyriazi is not telling you to "be" James Bond it's about you, upgrading your lifestyle be it money, dress, girls, overall prosperity using several Bond movie references.
I've listened to it twice in a row on my way to and from work and have actually taken some suggestions I've learned in the "book" and applied to my everyday life.
If you are stuck in a rut and looking for some motivation to "get out" I would suggest getting a copy of this audio book.
Best Self-Improvement Program is now Even Better
I'd been fortunate enough to find the book and original cassette version of this program on amazon years ago. I listened to the tape so many times while driving that I wore it out. This 8 CD set has a lot more information than the original. You can tell Mr. Kyriazi has continued to learn and practice his techniques.
From the introduction by David Hedison (Felix Leiter in two of the James Bond movies) through the "Clearing the Subconscious Mind" session on the last CD, this set places a powerful set of tools in your hands. Tools you can use to improve your lifestyle.
Since I first listened to Mr. Kyriazi's program, I've upgraded my life signifcantly. I found my "Bond girl," got my first novel published, and drive a new Mustang GT. I don't know if any of these things would have happened if I hadn't discovered (and implemented) these well-thought out and explained techniques. Thanks, Paul!
I can't recommend this strongly enough to anyone who is interested in improving his lifestyle.
