Publisher's Summary

Do you want to learn the influence and the psychology of persuasion through techniques that help you increase the ability to manipulate people? If yes, then keep reading....

You can only use influence and persuasion when you have been influenced or persuaded in the past. To understand how to use something properly, you normally have to have been on the opposite side. Thus, you are able to see the full power. You can understand the damage of the dark side of persuasion - manipulation - and feel the pain that it can cause.

When persuasion is done correctly, however, you also know how beneficial it can be. Remember when your parents tried to persuade you to follow one form of schooling over another? You may have ignored their advice, or perhaps you took it and ended up finding success in that specific field. When you can see the benefits of persuasion, you know how to better use it so that you are helping others and not hurting them.

Do you want to have power at work, where you can be assured that you will get away with whatever you want? It can be exhausting to work for someone who takes advantage of you. When we feel as though we are being walked all over, it can cause us to lose interest in our position. When someone takes more from us than they are giving back, it can be a lonely feeling and one from which it is hard to recover.

In order to make sure you are getting the most out of your position and that you are taking your career in the right direction, you have to ensure that you have persuasive techniques that make you appear reliable, trustworthy, and deserving of more. When you are able to achieve this reality, it becomes much easier to start getting what you wanted and deserved from the beginning.

Perhaps you are concerned about not having enough power with friends, family, or in your relationship. Sometimes others can take advantage of us, much like our bosses. The person you lie next to in bed every night could also be responsible for your constant stress and worry due to them asking too much from you.

If you know what you want but do not know how to say it, you can use persuasive techniques to try and get them to follow your path toward happiness. It is not something that is malicious but rather a way for you to encourage someone to do something that you know is best for them.

Many people take advantage of their abilities to persuade people and try to gain too much control over others. Instead, you can learn how to unlock an ability that already exists inside of you so you can take charge of your life.

Persuasion is a form of encouragement that helps unlock parts of one’s life with some outside sources, while still helping them go in their own direction. Persuasion should never be a method of force. Instead, emphasis should be placed on using your persuasive abilities for good.

Wow Fantasrtic listen

What this book lacks in depth, it makes up for in width. You cover a lot of (common) principles with some (basic) guidance on their applicability. The references are handy for disinterested into the concepts, but you just touch upon the surface in the book itself.

Boiler plate self-help book. Not a fan.

Most the the reviews I see here are fake. You can see the similarities between the reviews in how the sentences are structered and the grammar. Audible is plagued with fake reviews. This book has little worth while substance to me, and states the obvious that any functioning adult in society would understand. Tries to make it seem like it is going to teach you a super power. This is not for me. It is painful to me to listen to because it feels like a grift.

Easy to understand.

I definitely thought that the author hit on some interesting concepts to understand the human mind, but I did not agree on every aspect of this audio listen. This is an interesting way to get people to try and understand how to understand people.
