Publisher's Summary

Have you spent most of your life watching the people around you overtake you and always get the better end of the stick, professionally and personally? Do you sit in meetings or at bars and hear people confidently share their thoughts and opinions to people who look on and take in every word they say? Have you ever wanted to be able to share your messages and ideas in the same way?

This book takes the core foundations of psychology based on a decade’s worth of scientific studies and information and has created this roadmap for success.

Being able to master the art of persuasion is to master the art of communication. It’s a skill that allows you to get what you want, be heard, and take your life in the direction you want it to go.

Within the chapters of this book, you’ll discover:

  • How to nurture the mindset of self-confidence and belief in yourself
  • The number one secret in becoming more persuasive (Hint: It’s not what you think)
  • How to talk to anybody — achieve effortless communication skills
  • How to master the art of using and reading body language
  • How human psychology and communication works
  • How to increase your charisma and make people like you
  • Over a dozen methods and strategies to persuade people of your ideas
  • And much more

Using proven psychological communication strategies like priming and spreading activation, you can then put your subject into a more susceptible mindset that helps open them to your ideas, allowing you to ethically persuade and influence people by controlling their thoughts, feelings, emotions, and even their behavior.

If you’ve ever wanted to convince your partner to get a pet or a new car, wanted your boss to listen to your ideas, or wanted to persuade people to offer you a favor — it doesn’t matter what situation you could be in — this book contains the strategies and secrets to help you unlock it all!

Good audiobook

I found this audio book to be pretty basic and general in the first half and more ideas are felt like similar and picked up from other books.
But as you listen further the second half of the audio book is more fun and new ideas are there with examples and relatable thoughts.

Excellent read but even more is the practicality of the education information and presentation of the material. I was so impressed I purchased the book after the first few pages and am now starting to re-read the second time and am looking for other work by this author.

Good book

t is human nature that we like to have our way. We want the friends we have to like us; we want to attract new friends to us, and we want things to run smoothly in our lives. It is all perfectly natural and is things that help us to be happy and content. For some people, they have an innate ability when it comes to this, but for others, it is something that must be learned.

Great for sales and teaching

As a publisher who creates learning materials, there is great info here for subtle ways to present the material so it will readily stick with the student. One thing to take note of is the attachment principle presented towards the end of the book. As a publisher who also wants to increase sales of their products, I also found the persuasion techniques as applied to sales very helpful. Even though I have been marketing online for a very long time, I picked up some points that I can apply to my website and social media marketing efforts.

Great informative book

This book starts you off with a little history of psychology and what it's based on. It tells why our emotional state influences our psychological state. It discusses signs of a manipulator and what to do about them. This book talks about hypnosis and the three stages of hypnosis. I found this book enjoyable to read and has a lot of information.

Fantastic book!

This book is an amazing and fantastic book about the “art of persuasion”. I loved it! I recommend it to everyone because everyone uses persuasion in one way or another in their daily lives to communicate with other people. You can apply it to your interactions with your spouse, kids, clients, employees, friends and so many other people to persuade them to do what you want.
