    • ABRIDGED (5 hrs and 9 mins)

    Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, delineating the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want - any way we can. Controversial but never dull, timeless and up-to-date, it's destined to be Greene's next best seller.

    Then this book is for you! Yes, unpredictability and mystery is sometimes alluring in a hook-up/partner, but in moderation. People of substance (the people we Audible.com members WANT to hook-up with, right?) will identify and RUN from Greene's paper-thin manipulations! If you are legitimately as emotionally isolated as this book suggests you should be to "ensnare" someone (i.e. drive them insane), then you're probably naturally employing its tactics. If not, is it really possible or necessary to FAKE emotional unavailability and disinterest? Sounds like crazytalk to me.

    However, the narrator gives a good performance- but seems to channel the voiceovers on Haunted Mansion ride at Disneyland. I also enjoyed the historiography/typology of legendary seducers, very interesting connections! But the "advice" derived from the analysis is weak-minded and cheap, in my opinion.
