Item description for The Dark Side of the Pyramid by Patrick J. Smith...

Patrick J. Smith has over twenty-five years of marketing and business experience. He graduated at the top of his MBA program and is a successful business management consultant, coach, and mentor to top corporate executives in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. He and his wife reached the first level of success in a well-known network marketing program back in the late 1980s, and they found that what had been promised did not line up with reality. Applying the same analytical techniques that he's used with countless numbers of clients worldwide, he began to peel away the layers of deception. This book rips the faade off the entire network marketing industry to totally expose the cold, harsh reality of the sinister side of these questionable programs. The knowledge contained in these pages could literally save you hundreds, if not thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours of wasted time.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Dark Side of the Pyramid?

A Great book for mediocre people  Apr 1, 2007
Here is a what seems to be a good insight to MLM, which turned out to be a failure and a self fulfilling goal for a person who not only provides people with a business or an alternative to get rich or improve their lives, but instead throws a bunch of junk to the industry that has produced more multimillionaires than any other industry in the world beside real estate. MLM/Network Marketing, is an industry praised by the brightest minds of our time, from Donald Trump, Bill Clinton, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet (who purchased a great MLM company not long ago) and many many more...but hey, maybe Mr. Patrick knows things these people don't know...

Be careful what you read, they will either improve your life or make it worse.

Another failure in MLM writes a book  Feb 13, 2007
Isn't it getting a little old that another person is writing a book about the Amway model ruining their life? Amway and now Quixtar created the most self made multi millionaires in the history of this country and has created wealth for any person that wants it. I bet if Patrick spent as much time building his business instead of being a critic he would have the life only imagined. No one has ever done anything great by wetting on themselves anytime the going got tough.
Don't be suduced by the dark side...  Mar 29, 2005
This book is essential for people who think they're going to become financially successful through Amway or other similar network marketing schemes. The sheer amount of families who have been destroyed by Amway and its imitators is significant and sad. The book also includes a reprint of an earlier Amway expose that is difficult to find these days.
Dont waste you money or time.  Mar 19, 2004
Most of this can be found on the internet for free and this book just reguritates for the sake of a book.

I have to disagree with most of it anyway but I suppose it will be loved by the negheads of this world

The Dark Side rips the mask off the MLM industry  May 21, 2003
Patrick J. Smith's analysis of the problems facing the Network Marketing (MLM) industry is insightful. It is really spooky that Philip Kern's book and Smith's book, written 20 years apart, are in many ways so similar. I've been waiting for years for someone to have the courage to reprint Kern's book (it's worth all "5 Stars" just to buy this for this section alone). Some people may be "put off" by the Bible quotes at the end of each chapter, but the core analysis and tools that he gives the reader are more than worth it, especially the "30 Questions" section that arms the novice with the right questions to ask any potential "sponsor." Really, really good. "MLM-ers" will probably hate this book.
