Who are these guys? Looks like a vanity press to me. They promise to Partner with you. Principal is Chris Snook. However, the signature line in the email was:

The Lifestyle Enhancement Company
770 11th Ave
San Diego CA, 92101

Come to think of it; sounds more like viagra.

Search doesn't yield much useful so far...

Didn't watch the video, but the text underneath made me giggle:

This is exactly why The Automatic Author Program was created – to replace the lack with OVERFLOW!. We will teach you how to raise the money you need to get your book paid for; we have a program to fit every budget and experience level; we have a system that will get your book written in 20 hours (or less) of your time and we will give you a Personal Author Specialist to manage your production timelines and coordinate launch plans and we will give you access to tailored marketing systems and a proven business model to increase your sales immediately.

20 hours? You mean I spent years learning how to write properly and all I had to do was join an "automatic author" program? I could've been on the NYT bestseller list by now! :D

This is weird. The company seems to be offering self-publishing to business people as a means of increasing their marketing potential for their own services/expertise.

No Limit Publishing Website:
The faster you can build rapport and influence with your prospects the faster you close the sale. Simply put, having a published book is absolutely the most effective, time saving and cash flow boosting tool any business owner, networker or consultant can possibly have.

But you already understand this – you know having a book will increase your business and revenue significantly and quickly…

Wow. You'd have to have brain damage to have anything to do with these people. Severe brain damage.

Ooh, magic bullet! Sure it's really that easy, and no one else ever figured it out. (/sarcasm)

Oh, they'll get takers...Eager to part with their money.

Hey, Dave, not meaning to hijack, but do you ever get asked about your past?

I used to get that all the time. Could be worse. I could look like Willem Defoe.

From what I'm reading here, they seem like people who help you churn out fantastic looking proposal packages for use at board meetings. Much nicer than a bunch of pages stapled together.

Does anyone else think, "The Lifestyle Enhancement Company", is a better motto for Realdolls, or perhaps mail-order-brides?

Going by LinkedIn profiles, Mr. Brown left in '11 to start Throne Publishing Group (http://thronepg.com/), and Mr. Snook left in '12. NLP site hasn't been updated, nor can I find anything published this year.
