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.

Great narration, interesting material

Be advised that this approaches seduction from both a historical perspective, a psychological perspective, and a fair bit of "how to". Though some of the recommendations are questionable, the narrator's style is capitvating and elevates the material. Those looking for a "step-by-step" guide to seduction would do better buying another audiobook. Those looking for a relaxing, informative, and interesting listening experience have found the right book.

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.

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.
