Imagine that…a misleading infomercial!
Last night, immediately following The Willis Report, an infomercial came on promoting Napoleon Hill’s “The Law of Sucess.” The guy selling the book claimed that he was the only one selling this book. This is misleading. Why? Because I have a copy of “The Law of Success” and Amazon sells several different versions of the book.
The guy hawking the book claims that he found copies of the Law of Success that were produced in 1925, a full three years before the book was published. I’m not sure what the difference is and I’m not will to fork over $49.95 + $9.95 shipping and handling to find out.
Something I found really curious was the “interviewer” asked the seller of the book, what was in the book. The seller said something like, “Well, I don’t really want to get into that. I don’t want to dilute Napoleon’s message.”
The reason I suspect the seller didn’t want to give details is that it would be clear that this book consists of material that is already available in books that sell for WAY LESS than the $60 he is selling his for.
I don’t care for infomercials.
