Social Influence and Compliance Gaining

The organization was effective, and I learned how much knowledge about Dark Psychology has changed since twenty years ago, the last time I taught a course on that subject. If I had to start over to learn about Dark Psychology, this was an excellent way to do it!

perfect!

This book looks at all aspects of persuasion from a scientific point of view. It's useful in two directions, how to be more persuasive, and how to resist persuasion. Most important, it's how to understand what's happening in our the world.

The Author lays out the information that's concise and easy to learn and understand. I'll be buying more from him -- if and when he publishes his next book. You won't be disappointed.

Only if you're VERY naive

"Someone may be manipulative like this or like that" is what the book is full of. "The flooding smile" is a GAME CHANGING technique though and it is worth getting this book for that alone. I already knew it though (from a better book by Liel Lowndes called "How to talk to Anyone")

Good revision but nothing new

It was a good revision for someone who has studied NLP and persuasion techniques. Hoped for something a bit more than what I got however it is a good book nonetheless.

Hilarious, Intriguing and Friendly

This book is written in a very clear style. It was easy to understand with great depth and breadth. It would have been nice if it were easier to find specific theories and concepts through more subheadings or bold type, but still not bad.
