The Art of Influence will make you think twice about everything you've ever learned about influence. As Chris Widener's inspiring story reveals, it's not something you "do" to other people but rather something that starts with how you shape and transform your own life. Forget about manipulation and slick fast-talking; The Art of Influence teaches that your ability to influence others begins from within.

This is a self help book on becoming a better person. Great but not what the doctor ordered.
I really enjoyed this because it was presented in a story. I love the 4 rules. I need to frame and post these rules at home and in my business to always keep in my mind.
I would recommend this book to be read in a 5th grade classroom. It is very elementary, and only brushes every so slightly on a few topics of leadership/influence. You're much better off reading a book such as 'How to Win Friends & Influence People'. Though, this would be a good, cheesy little book to give to your child to learn the very basics of influence. I regret the purchase.
Nice story and to the point. Chris Widener teaches us the four Golden Rules!
What i really liked is that the author summarizes the lessons at the end!!
near very top
any Zig Zigler books.
Not prior to this one.
Influencing & winning others
Easy to listen to
seems like it was written by a teenager. content is of very low quality. A waste of money. If you are looking for a good book on influence listen to "Maximum influence" its just about the total opposite of this book.
