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.

    "What to do but not how to do it"

    This CD did a real good job of telling you what to do, but for those who are not able to just do need to know how to do it.

    "Almost too condensed"

    This is my 3rd Robert Greene book (after Mastery and Strategies of War) but my first abridged version. While the other two were a bit too long, the multiple examples for each concept allowed me to occasionally "tune out" but still get the gist of it. In this version, it's so condensed that I probably missed at least a few of the concepts because there weren't enough repetitious examples to really hammer each one into my brain. The grass is always greener I suppose.

    "Sad yet informative"

    Sad commentary on life but true. I used it as a defense guide against socially aggressive people
