Publisher's Summary

This is a summary of the original book, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, by Robert Cialdini. The book is an authoritative work on the art of persuasion. It discusses the mental attitudes that make you say "yes", and, more importantly, explains how to use these. The author walks you through six universal principles and explains how to be a skilled influencer, while at the same time knowing how to shield yourself from negative persuasions.
The author, Dr. Robert Cialdini, is the pioneering authority in this rapidly developing area of psychology. For over three decades, Dr. Cialdini, painstaking conducted a data-based study parallel to a medium-term course of study on what motivates humans to alter behavior. The result is Influence which is highly recommended by critics. This book is for you. It will not fail to inspire you to consider the need for a deep personality change through an intelligent understanding of the psychology of persuasion.

The narration is terrible

What didn’t you like about Chrystianna Robinson’s performance?

The narrator's voice as well as her awkward phrasing ruins this excellent summary. Siri could have done the audiobook with more naturalness.

Can't recommend

This summary is written in a very stilted style. This detracts from its value as a summary.

I couldn't finish listening. This summary might be salvageable with some editing, though.

I found the Instaread summary to be much better.

The book is better.

This audio summary is read is such a boring and monotonous way. There's quite a lot of I retesting info to absorb but the delivery is just so dull. I found it very disappointing and asked for a refund.
