Who's pulling for you? Who's got your back? Who's putting your hat in the ring? Odds are this person is not a mentor but a sponsor. Mentors can build your self-esteem and provide a sounding board - but they're not your ticket to the top.

Persuasion is a technique that you use on a daily basis, but how persuasive are you? Are you getting what you are seeking when attempting to persuade others? If not, it is time to start working on your ability to persuade. It is often thought that persuasion, and the techniques that fall under it, is only used for selfish reasons, but this is not true. In fact, being good at persuasion is needed to get ahead at work, form friendships, and even when interacting with strangers.

The art of persuasion entails a number of things, not just the ability to speak fluently and courageously in front of people.

This audiobook equips you with great techniques that will help you connect with your audience emotionally. Therefore, you will need to understand your audience's motivations, behaviors, beliefs, and their attitudes towards various subjects.

What made the experience of listening to Methods of Persuasion the most enjoyable?

some new information but you will need to read more books to truly understand NLP and Mind Control techniques. I enjoyed that it wasn't too long

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I always read/listen to books like this one several times. I sometimes couldn't follow but that might be just me.

Which scene was your favorite?

The body language part is actually good to be reminded of

What insight do you think you’ll apply from Methods of Persuasion?

I definitely received some new information to complete what I've already known. You can only implement knowledge if you listen to several books which remind you of it, then you have to try it in real life.

Any additional comments?

Overall, I like the book and don't really agree with the negative reviews
