Power University – Reviews

We share here some reviews and testimonials for Power University.

Later down the page you also have the reviews of “those who didn’t like it”, together with our responses.

And here you can find a quantitative analysis of the results Power University delivered to our alumni.

Let’s start:

Power University Video Reviews

Power University is literally changing my life. More than one person came to tell me I’m different -for the better-. Not to mention how more confident I feel now knowing and noticing the power moves happening all the time. Of all the money I’ve spent on self-help books and courses this was by far the best investment.

I was expecting good content, but I also thought I was going to read things I already knew. Boy, I was wrong. It’s the first time I’m hearing about most of this stuff, even though I bought dozens of other courses and had a mentor for a year. I only went through module 1 but I can already see what potential this knowledge has to improve my life. Power University paints the big picture and connects the pieces of the puzzle. I think the course is worth much, much more.

I had my reservations before signing up, but with only module 1 done I learned SO much more about the power dynamics that happened in my own relationships than I had EVER. Which is both awesome and disturbing


I’m completely blown away by the material of this course. I have an elite background, first class education, and yet I didn’t have a clue about this stuff. This material is so powerful that I couldn’t help but feel angry that I had been kept in the dark.

The lessons on frame control and video examples have opened my mind. I can come up with frame control techniques on the fly.

– Anthony R.

Power University is amazing. It already helps me to unnecessarily lower my power. It gives me strength and clarity, and keeps me from going back to my shy and defensive behavior.

– Kevin S.

I’ve never seen before something so complete, deep, and versatile in one program. And It works. In a few weeks I’ve increased my social intelligence by many folds.

– Ang

I discovered that I was sending lots of submissive signals (…) and giving my power away. And if I’m unconsciously communicating that I don’t deserve respect, why should other people bother. (…) A necessary wake-up call for me, and now I can correct course. (…) I highly recommend this course.

– Leon

Power University Public Reviews

These are public reviews.

You can check them for yourself by following the links.

Keep in mind the course was previously called “Social Power”, so some reviews reference “Social Power” instead of “Power University”, but they’re the same thing (actually, “Power University” is far better as it’s gone through several updates).

  • Most actionanable course out there

I took a lot of courses (…) from well-known individuals and respectable institutions (…) Mindvalley, Tony Robbins, Robbin Sharma, Robert Moore, Vanessa Van Edwards among many others. I learned a ton but the best, the ultimate course I have joined so far belongs to a man I had never heard before. His name is Lucio Buffalmano.
This is a life changer (…) his course works and is probably the most actionable course out there. I truly recommend it to anyone who wants to gain social power. Because when you gain social power, you gain success.

  • That course is genuinely amazing

See the review here.

for full disclosure, the full review is:

That course is genuinely amazing despite it looking like some 12 year old fresh off a power trip from 48 laws of power wrote the advertising for it

I appreciated the feedback on the marketing side :).

  • “My partner is more attracted to me, and so are other women”

After studying PU my partner has started to really be attracted to me at a primordial level, like she never was -and I as well to her
All the power moves from her are disappearing, she now tries to be more loving, closer, more helpful than ever
Other women whom I find attractive approach me or show high interest, sometimes even when my partner is present

Also from the forum, but given the more personal nature of this review, I choose not to link to it out of respect for the author.
However, this is normal and expected as you become higher power.

  • There is no course that even comes close (when it comes to dealing with people)

Power University is the best course I’ve ever taken. I’m confident that there is no course that comes even close to covering the Power University curriculum of dealing with other people as well as Power University does

Note: John actually came up with the strategy that he applied himself, putting together different pieces of information, so all the credit to him. 
I then added that strategy to Power University (thanks, John!).

  • One of the best investments for personal wealth

As somebody who’s starting to come to the end of a carer I can say (…) this is literally the best investment you could make

Read this comment here.

That’s talking from a career perspective (there is a whole module on career strategies and power dynamics). 
The little money you’re paying now, will likely turn into 10x more income and success during your career.

  • Mind-boggling growth

I joined the course Charisma University, but when I failed to connect with new people using the techniques, my tiny pieces of self esteem shattered.
I was so sick of living in constant stress and fear of my neighbor that I decided to buy PU. And holy sh*t am I happy I did. The growth I’ve seen since I joined is tremendous. As I’m typing this out it’s almost mind boggling to see how far I’ve managed to come in a little over a year.
Since I joined I’ve learned to see the world through a new lens, the lens that we here call power awareness. With this lens I’ve been able to improve relationshipsstand up to my boss(es) on several occasions,  learned to how to give value to the people around me, and just in general learned to enforce boundaries and stand up for myself and what I believe in.
Most of all, since I joined Power University I’ve realized that I hold all the power to turn myself into any sort of person I want to become, and to shape my life into the life I want to live. As I write this I know I have a long way to go, but now I know that I have what it takes to achieve anything I set my mind to.

  • Potentially better than the competition
  • Social ju-jitsu techniques take your social skills to advanced level
a review from power university in the forum

I was blown away by this concept. It completely changed my way of interacting with people, for real.

This was a case study on handling micro-aggressions and covert aggressions, which together account for probably 90% of all aggressions you’ll go through in your life.
Now, thanks to John’s initial question and feedback, it’s a lesson in the “advanced social skills” module.

  • You will get rid of submissivness and become more assertive

What I learnt in the course is gonna extend to a lifetime ahead of me. It really helped me in terms of asserting myself. I can not describe my gratitude for this knowledge of power.

Power University Email Reviews

Some of the email feedback:

  • So good you wanna keep it secret
a student feedback on power university

For me this course is too valuable to ever let it have search history

My answer: don’t worry about others studying the same. First of all, this website is niche enough that you will most likely not meet anyone else who has taken this advanced type of training. And two, most people are too lazy to train themselves to elite levels.

So, yeah… That’s your chance, guys:

  • Groundbreaking: there’s no comparison on the market

It’s the first time I’m hearing about most of this stuff, even though I bought dozens of other courses and had a mentor for a year. The course is worth much, much more.


Eye-opener (…) the subtle and hidden power moves totally mind-blowing (…) I feel so lucky (…) Thank you for teaching me the most valuable currency in life

power university review from a customer

Mind-blowing stuff. I’m getting a ton out of it.

Yeah, it’s a life-changing course, but full access is a different product. On the other hand, Power University covers all the basics, so you might not need the full website access.


It’s by far the best self-help I’ve ever come across

Note: the course was previously called “Social Power”, that’s why the subject line

I’m blown away by the value of your course. I’m not even at chapter 2 yet.


an email feedback for power university



The Power University is literally changing my life (…) each small thing I learn about social dynamics makes me realize how oblivious I was. More than one person came to tell me that I’m different somehow, for the better. This was, by far, the best investment.


I have not finished going through the entirety of PU but I have already benefited tremendously from the knowledge and wisdom included.

I have made a quantic leap in power awareness (not surprisingly as I didn’t even know the concept before) and I have improved very significantly in terms of coming across as more powerful and less vulnerable.

Now the material is quite long so I have not finished it yet but I am already planning to go through it a second time.

I think it’s the best material in terms of self development I have come across so far, at least for my personality type ( clueless in terms of power interaction, too humble publicly and frankly too submissive)

Thanks for the tips for keeping up with the learning.

Feel free to use my email to advertise to potential customers. It is a sincere feedback.

PS: I completely agree to the ” even if it takes a year, it will be beneficial”. In fact, I think one should not hurry as the material is quite dense and there is a lot of wisdom in there. I cannot imagine how long it must have take you to create this content!

T.S., happy PU customer


I completed the survey, and I wanted to also reply to tell you I have found Power University to be the single best investment I have ever made in myself. I am still fairly new to the program, and of course social skills involve life-long learning, so there is room for even more improvement than what I indicated on the survey. If there is anywhere you would like me to express my praise for the program more publicly, just let me know and I would be happy to do that.

Customer Service Reviews

The people enrolling in Power University are actively improving their lives.

And I feel like we are kindred souls. 
People who want more for themselves and their lives, and take concrete steps to have it.

And without them, this website wouldn’t exist.
I always prioritize customers above anything else:

That was one of the first customers. And since then, the customer experience has only improved

Thank you very much for the amazing customer service. Not only did you show great respect, but you also understood my situation and offered me alternatives so I could enjoy the services that TPM has to offer. 
I’m looking forward to acquiring more products from TPM in the future.

Best regards,

Feel free to put that review in the TPM website or in any other social media that you prefer. I´ll refer my friends and family to this website.

M.A., Happy PU customer

Power University Negative Reviews

ThePowerMoves.com is not your typical business.

To begin with, it prioritizes product over marketing (there still isn’t even a video or a teaser to advertise Power University).

Another way ThePowerMoves.com is different is by being far more open as to what happens behind the curtains.

So I’m including here the feedback of those who didn’t vibe with Power University.
It’s rare, but anything can happen. 

This alumnus was looking for something shorter:

Power University can be a life-changer… If you are willing to spend some effort

I immediately refunded P, no questions asked.
P was not a good fit for the course, and I knew it.
We aren’t yet in an era where we can install wisdom and skills by plugging a cable in our brain (and trust me sometimes I wish we were already :).
In our era, life doesn’t change without some action. So you still need to do your part.

When Women’s Sections Were Lacking

Power University constantly improves its curriculum.

The last major update was thanks to a customer called Kristina.
Kristina thought Power University was too male-centric:

I am extremely grateful for Kristina’s feedback. 
This is what she went on to say:

Kristina had a great point.
There is no such resource to teach women how to strategically handle power and success while still remaining likable and feminine.

And that’s exactly what this website provides: smart social strategies for life success.

Since then and for 5 months I did nothing but research women and power.
All of my quarantine 15-hours workdays also all went into this project.
So I got the books she suggested. And many more. I delved into the research literature for women and power, and women in the workplace. 
I recalled all instances of powerful women I’ve met, and I scoured movies and YouTube for real-life examples.

And I condensed all that knowledge into a few lessons tailored for women only. One addressing the mindsets, one addressing career strategies, and one on how to combine power and femininity.
All with practical examples and videos.
Now Power University is the best course on the market for women who seek to combine personal success with social success.

So if you’re a woman, this might be for you:

When you hate PU (and its author) because you got kicked out of it

Well, this was interesting.

I removed this user from PU and refunded her the initial price she paid.
And that eventually led the user to say it was “the worst experience she’s ever had”.

I fully accept the reality of her negative experience seen from her point of view.

On the positive side, if you think about it, the fact that one got so emotional and so badly wanted to stay in PU tells you a lot about how good it can be for you.

And then she says:

Her complaint confirms that every time we said that “the price will go up”, we told the truth.
And the only reason why the price has gone up 10x is that the quality has gone up 100x.
So you actually get far better value now.

By the way, you can also learn more about how to handle challenging situations like an irate customer in PU.

Independent Authors’ Reviews

And I will end with another public review. 
This is what Alexander, an early student of Power University, says of the people he has learned from:

You can see that review here.

Full disclosure on vid reviews: since some students wish to remain anonymous, for some videos, I hired a professional to read the reviews aloud. The speaker’s gender, race, and skin color are random.
To keep the videos short and meaningful I sometimes cut the original (video)reviews. Overall, the videos preserved the original meaning. And I believe the video reviews are a faithful and realistic representation of the full (text-based) reviews.
