Does Barbara Heidenreich’s "Good Bird Inc." work?

I am thinking about trying one of her DVD's for my budgies. One isn't really afraid of me, but doesn't like hands. He sometimes will jump to the front bars and I can lightly touch my lips to his beak or tail. I've had him 3 years.

My newest one is not even a year old, and he was handfed, but not socialized at all, and I got him at 3 months old, hoping he would be easier to work with, but nope. But on his second day here, I got him to step up on a stick. It took 40 minutes, but I was very impressed. But he found his way to my first boy and they bonded. I've never been able to get him on the stick again. But I know he's capable.

Now, my question is, which one? I am debating between Parrot Behavior
and Training #1 and The Basics of Parrot Training A Live Workshop, if they work that is.

Do they work: I would say if you can make any of the training books or DVD's work for you, then yes go with Barbara's advice and knowledge.
I have not seen these mind you. I do have a couple of her books and have seen Barbara in action 3x. Stunning is how I would describe her in action. But she has this magic ability to connect very quickly to them, which puts them as ease. Understanding body language is the first thing we all need to be able to read.

Before you spend any money you could join goodbirdgroup and ask on there which they think is the better option.
