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.
I love this type of information. I suppose I would've enjoyed a few more examples and deeper explanation. However the short into the point examples and exclamation provided were very beneficial.￼
I like that it was short and to the point. At the same time I may have disliked that it was so short and to the point.
not at all. Just a book of what felt like bulletpoints.
I am in marketing and got multiple tags and phrasings that I can use to influence clients to see how my services will work better for them than my competition!
Don't let this simple title lead you to think this book has basic information. This book has great information as well as scientific data to back up its claims. It cites easy to understand examples so you can better understand the content.
The presentation was great as well. I liked how the headings and chapters were read by another person. This made it easy to differentiate the topics.
I found this book to be a great companion book to Influence: Science and Practice
by Robert Cialdini. Unfortunately, Audible does not have that book available, so you’ll have to read it :)
I would say that this book is more of a “practical handbook” where as Influence: Science and Practice is more of the in depth theory and practice of influence. You will get the most out of this book if you are familiar with Cialdini’s Six Principles of Influence: reciprocation, consistency, social proof, liking, authority and scarcity.
Regardless if you have read Cialdini’s other book(s), you will find this book to be practical in everyday use of influence.
Yes, anyone interested in understanding the way humans work, and how to influence others.
I liked the tips on preventing being unduly influenced. Cool research shared as well.
Ask a small favor before a big one
I'll probably read it again to refresh the insights
