In 2002 Mark Joyner wrote an marketing book Mind Control Marketing - or to give it the correct title - "MindControlMarketing.com: How Everyday People Are Using Forbidden Mind Control Psychology and Ruthless Military Tactics To Make Millions Online"
The Mind Control Marketing book shot to the top of the best seller lists but within 36 hours Mark Joyner had a change of mind and withdrew the Mind Control Marketing.
Evidently Mark Joyner decided that the world wasn't ready because the psychological tactics can be used and abused.
News - 17 September 2008
Overnight Mark Joyner has changed the deal on Mind Control Marketing and you can download two chapters for free so that you can see for yourself just how good this book is.
Here is a link to my latest my latest blog Mind Control Marketing Free PDF with more details and a quick summary of what the two free chapters cover. I have also written a review of Mind Control Marketing on my Business Books Blog.
Now back to my original blog about the re-release.
Mark Joyner background

Mark Joyner is a very bright cookie and completed his Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology while working for US Military Intelligence.
Using Psychology In Marketing For "Mind Control"
Mind Control Marketing re-released
Mark Joyner has now decided that he can't hold back the forces any longer and the Mind Control Marketing book is being released on April 8th, 2008.
He has realised that if he does not tell everyone how mind control marketing works and the mind control psychology works, then other people will.

Either you know these mind control marketing techniques or you don't.
Either you are prepared for the influence of mind control marketing or you are not.
Either you use these mind control tricks or the tricks are used against you.
My view is that forewarned is forearmed.
Ethical Dilemma about Mind Control Marketing
I understand where Mark Joyner is coming from on this because I have wrestled with this problem as I try to encourage people to become customer focused entrepreneurs.
The same tactics can be used to help persuade the buyer to make the right decision which is in their best interests or they can be used to trick the buyer into wasting their money on useless scams.
Is Mind Control Marketing Hype?
Well certainly announcing the launch ahead of time and getting everyone really curious about Mind Control Marketing is a mind control technique.
We also have the "unseen missing chapter" trick so we are having mind control marketing tactics applied to us as I write this and you read it.
For an independent opinion take a look at Amazon.com for Mind Control Marketing (affiliate link)
Used copies of MindControlMarketing.com are available for sale from $198.58 (funny amount but impressively large) and the Mind Control Marketing video talks about copies selling for between $100 and $500 at different times.
Even more impressive is that there are 114 reviews of which 102 are five stars.
The Mind Control Marketing book looks to be something that we all need to know about.
I haven't read the original book but I am interested in the science and art of persuasion and influence so it looks like I will buy it provided the price is reasonable.
Will I pay a normal book price for it? Yes. Would I pay $200? No.
You do have to be a little wary on books like this.
Just look at the sub-title- "How Everyday People Are Using Forbidden Mind Control Psychology and Ruthless Military Tactics To Make Millions Online".
Update April 9th, 2008
Mind Control Marketing went on sale for $27 overnight and I bought it immediately.
After all, if I only pick up one tip that works I'll get my money back many times over.

I will let you know what I think of Mind Control Marketing but that could be a couple of months away.
