What the press is saying:
Jose Silva's Sales Power book is full of stories about people in sales who learn to tap more of their mental power to achieve dramatic success. -Srikumar Rao, in Success Magazine
Freeing the Mind
In the late '70s Jose Silva wrote an international best-seller, The Silva Mind Control Method (S&S / Pocket). A "New Ager" ahead of the vogue, he also conducted seminars designed to increase intuition, creativity and productivity. A down-to-earth friend of mine who attended one reported an experience that astonished both himself and a woman in the group.
Asked by a third party if he could visualize what he woman had on her shoulder, he stated correctly, "A rose tattoo," then added, "But I'd rather see the butterfly on your buttock."
Her response was to run away down the hall. She was back a few minutes later, marveling, "How did you know!"
Now a new Silva book is in the stores, Sales Power: The Silva Mind Method for Sales Professionals. There is also an audiotape from Harper.
With an assist from agents overseas, New York agent Jeff Herman has sold translation rights in Malaysia, Israel, Spain and Spanish South America, France, Hungary, Thailand, Brazil, Taiwan and Denmark. Other foreign contracts are under negotiation.

Success stories from the Sales Power book:
“You have to be careful what it is that you decide you want. I can verify that more than likely you will get it.” —Marge Liddy, former owner of Host Realty, Satellite Beach, Florida, Chapter 8
“Jose Silva gave us the key. He told us, ‘You work so hard to do all the things that you do. Why don't you use more from your neck up instead of down?’ The results? We have completely circled the world three different times in three different routes. Our trips always pay for themselves and more, because of the way we program it.” —Ken and Elone Hoobler, owners of artificial stone business, San Antonio, TX
“Within 90 days after completing the Silva Method my sales increased 200 percent.” —Dave Bellizzi, insurance salesman, financial planner, Fort Lee, NJ

“There is no way to estimate the value of the Silva Method principles in the conduct of a business. The use of this meditation/visualization skill through the years has been a priceless asset for growth and a vital factor in the success of our business. We have found the Silva Method of Mind Development to be the most grounded, practical, accessible, and easy method of all the self-improvement programs we have attended.” —John and Rita Donohue, San Diego, California, owners of Magic Wind

It helps to unlock your mind and set it free to seek out the knowledge it needs to grow and perform efficiently for you.” —Art Thomas, Michigan
“I'd feel naked and unarmed making a big sales call without these techniques. You shouldn't have to feel that way. Someone recommended the Silva Method to me. I tried it, and it worked. Now I'm recommending it to you.” —Dennis Higgins, sales trainer and consultant
