    Thank You for Arguing is your master class in the art of persuasion, taught by professors ranging from Bart Simpson to Winston Churchill. The time-tested secrets the book discloses include Cicero's three-step strategy for moving an audience to action as well as Honest Abe's shameless trick of lowering an audience's expectations by pretending to be unpolished. But it's also replete with contemporary techniques such as politicians' use of “code” language to appeal to specific groups and an eye-opening assortment of popular-culture dodges.

    What disappointed you about Thank You for Arguing?

    The narrator is totally wrong and inappropriate for this book. He does not have the voice or persona of the author.
    The concepts that Heinrichs is trying to convey are really interesting, but they are communicated in a very scattered and seemingly illogical fashion- maybe part of it is the distraction of the narrators off key persona.
    Maybe if the author himself read it, everything would come together and the concepts would be evident and actionable.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Jay Heinrichs? Why or why not?

    Maybe


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Drummond?

    The author or someone who's personality and voice persona were like the voice of the writing
