"I really like the Decoding Behavior book. I am really impressed with the clarity, style and grace in framing the book and its segments. A VERY nice job!"

"The book gave me broader insight in how to use the iWAM reports in coaching clients. Its practical hands-on approach makes it easy for me to find ideas and suggestions for delivering a thoughtful advice based on the person's iWAM profile. Although a lot of the information could be found online in the help section this is the first the time it is all together in one place in a handy format. I recommend this to anyone using the iWAM, both novice and experienced user."
