This book on audio was a total rip off! Several parts of this book are missing. Robert Green is an excellent author and I enjoyed reading all of his books. The best part about his books is how he ties his concepts to real historical events. These historical events are missing in the audio version. I am very upset and very unhappy with this audiobook!
While it's definitely an interesting take on the topic, it's taken a little bit to the extreme. Some early points and strategies could be considered valid, but eventually they got to be a little too much. The entire time felt like I was being turned to the Dark Side, the reader's voice especially contributing, along with terminology like "victim", "prey", and "strike".
That said, there are a few little gems of insight that made it worthwhile - it was a short listen, but definitely made me think... A very odd experience.
Perhaps someone looking for a middle school approach to "ensnaring people." Seriously, the analysis is pretty shallow and the recommendations for "how to" are sophomoric and morally debased.
Yes, unless they have a more scholarly tone or a positive message.
Creepy tone of voice, more like what you'd expect Satan to have while he is whispering in your ear, rather that a serious and learned presentation of the psychology of seduction.
I would not have published this book. It makes no significant contribution to society.
This book is a time-waster. Shallow, repetitive, and morally debased. Where should you turn to for advice on winning people over either in business or personal settings?
How about Dale Carnegie (How to Win Friends and Influence People) or Steven Covey (Seven Habits of Highly Effective People). Don't fall for the cynically manipulations espoused by the author of this book.
