    I am looking for some help with my writing and have had a few suggestions for this book.

    Hypnotic Writing by Joe Vitale

    Has anyone read it? Is it worth getting? If not, what would be comparable?

    Haven't heard of that book but have heard of him. The standard copywriting classics are: How to Write a Good Advertisement (Victor o Schwab), Breakthrough Advertising, Ultimate Sales Letter.

    Absolutely - Joe Vitale is legit, and his work gives your writing an extra dimension. Sales copy training is based on influence and persuasion - which hypnotists have been pioneering. Give a man a fish, and all that...

    Never heard of this author but if you are really skeptical, I suggest you do a Google search and read some reviews on the book. That will help you make up your mind on whether or not it is going to add you any real value. Hope that helps!

    Absolutely. Joe Vitale is the man. Read it a few years ago. Helped me get my start.
