„Der Kurs ist sehr amüsant. Die einzelnen Techniken werden sehr schön dargestellt, immer zu Beginn mit einem Ausschnitt von Wlad als Trump. Das ist ihm sehr gelungen!

„Mr. Jachtchenko explained the three main categories of manipulation techniques Donald Trump uses in order to manipulate people. He is doing a great Job!

I like the style of Wlad explaining things clearly and understandable.”
