Cialdini's Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion examines the compliance methods by which marketers, salespeople, and others, such as cult leaders, pressure people into doing things they would not otherwise do.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

No one. The narrator was just awful.

What didn’t you like about Alan Munro’s performance?

He read very robotic, as if "Text-to-speach" was enabled, instead of an actual person telling the story.
