Yes. I just purchased Seduction in hopes of it being better. Many of the reviews talk about how it's an amoral book and to be mentally prepared. I think it's a historical perspective on human nature and how it has evolved with respect to wielding power in social settings. Humanity, at its core, hasn't changed all that much, we just smooth over the application of power today to be more socially acceptable/palatable.
My only real complaint is after about law 25 I kept wondering when the book would end. I got bored because the rules began to resemble each other more and more. It almost became mundane, and I just wanted it to end. Hopefully Seduction will not be the same...
The narration sounds kind of cheesy at first until you realize how dry this work would be without that. That being said, this is probably one of the more disturbingly accurate books I have listen to.
Once you take the angel off of your shoulder and put him in your pocket, you'll find many tools that will help you to control those around you.
If you have been successful in life either professionally or personally you will probably notice that you have followed some of these laws already.
Powerful you will become. The stories and context in which this book was written from are ancient but the principles will forever remain the same throughout history. You will be able to walk into any room and own it! You will have the ability to read and forsee everyone's actions, which gives you the advantage.
Nothing less than true quality from Robert Greene with an outstanding performance from the master storyteller Don Leslie.
A must read and hear for those who are curious about obtaining power or be protected by it.
A very cynical tone
What is your competition thinking
This was a fun, interesting, and informative book!
