Iranians keep their nukes, Americans lose their insurance.
In business meetings both formal and informal, I retold many of the stories from the book, and started applying many of the tips right away! I was entertaining most of all, but very practical and fun to listen to.
Say something about yourself!
I would recommend this for anyone with their own biz, or in any sort of marketing position. Its good common sense with a modern bend and all really useful info. I listened to it three times, making notes the third time to apply to my own biz. Recommend.
Yes! is a very practical compilation of many persuasive ideas. Some I already knew, some not. The reason I like it is because each point was made succinctly & persuasively, for immediate & practical use, then they move on to the next point. All the information may not be new, but it's good to have it concisely in one place. The reading is clear; it's difficult to make such purely information content exciting, but they do a good enough job & the text includes lots of interesting examples. One suggestion: I'd prefer that the chapter titles were more concrete, less catchy. That way I could write down the point immediately for desktop reference.
The title says it all. There are 50 good examples on how to be persuasive. Because it is broken into 50 ways, it is very easy to pick-up and read for short amounts of time. Finally, I like how their motives are not manipulative in nature (which a lot of sales/persuasion books are).
I found over ten items in this book to be new information that I could act upon immediately. Ten might seem like a low number, but get these kind of books all the time and it's rare to find any new information, much less multiple items. I highly recommend it. It has already paid for itself many times over.
book had many interesting ways to be persuasive, some things you would think go against it, however, once you thought about it, it made sense and was backed up by research and case studies. overall very good book.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was relevant and full of information that I think will help me in my business. What I didn't expect was that my 14 year old son and 12 year old daughter would also enjoy listening to this book. But then there is a lot of practical information in this book that can be applied to many situations.
I liked the information presented in this book.
Many great ideas!!! I found any of Malcolm Gladwell and Daniel Gilbert books much more entertaining. I am glad I purchased this book and will purchase the text as well. Any one in Sales/politics should read this one and put it to work.
