Client Comments and Product Reviews
Client comments were made at the conclusion of treatment without payment or benefit in exchange for them. They represent individual experiences based on each client’s unique history, personal commitment to coaching or therapy, and the duration of treatment. To the best of our knowledge, we believe clients are giving their honest opinion. To the extent a comment is a “success story” or “best-case scenario,” assume that it is exceptional and may not be your experience. Contact us if you want more information about expected typical results clients generally achieve. As there are many variables, there is no way of predicting outcomes or your unique experience. We keep on file data to substantiate clients’ comments. Their names cannot be revealed to protect client confidentiality.
Most of the product reviews are copied from independent reviewers and buyers on other online booksellers, such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble. You may view them on those websites. To the best of our knowledge, we believe buyers are giving their honest opinion, but we have no way to verify that. A very few reviewers received a promotional copy of the product. Base your decision to purchase on your own due diligence.
