Publisher's Summary

When raised to the level of art, seduction, an indirect and subtle form of power, has toppled empires, won elections, and enslaved great minds. The Art of Seduction synthesizes the legacies of civilization's greatest seducers - from Cleopatra to JFK - with the philosophies of important intellectuals on the subject, including everyone from Freud to Kierkegaard and Ovid to Casanova, and the classic literature of seduction. Robert Greene identifies the rules of a timeless, amoral game and explores how to cast a spell, break down resistance, and, ultimately, compel a target to surrender. The Art of Seduction is an indispensable primer on the essence of one of history's greatest weapons and the ultimate form of power.

    "You can skip this one."

    There's nothing you need in here. It's all pseudo arguments backed up by "historical" recollections.

    "Great insight"

    The book offers great insight to the phenomenon of seduction using reliable psychological analysis and a realistic approach.
    The performance of the narrator also helped keep me interested and wanting more, warm voice and curious toned without going over the edge.

    I like the tips the author gives
    But it seems quite hard to apply in real life
