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.

Slimy, Yet Satisfying

The worms and grubs of interpersonal attraction and seduction can be found here. I alternatively cringed, laughed, and took voluminuous notes as I listened. Put your ethics in neutral, listen, and, for God's sake, use only the "good side" of the force! This is an fascinating listen.

All parents of daughters and daughters should read

If you're a parent of a daughter, or a woman who's dating, this book will piss you off. But read the book and use it to learn the manipulation techniques that are potentially used against you. Forewarned is forearmed. Knowledge is power.

Very very good

The best seduction book I've ever read. It gets very in depth into the psychology of seduction at a deep level. Highly recommended.
