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.

The best book I purchased here

Great book. Lots of phsychology on sexes and their relationship. Explains pretty good why nice guys finish last. While it would be too much for me personally to use ALL rules and instructions in this book, but I can definitely use many of them. Also it definately helped me understand the other people's actions and my reaction to them much better. I would say the book is much more useful for guys rather than women. Guys, read it.

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.
