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.
very good, however if your looking to read/listen to only one book on the subject I would highly recommend "influence science and practice" which is a more detailed version of this book.
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.
