Publisher's Summary

Imagine how different your life would be if you could effortlessly persuade the people around you to get the most out of every situation.
You will never quite know how many opportunities you have missed by lacking the persuasive powers to truly get what you want out of life. Whether it's attaining more influence at work, or simply getting the kids to do the dishes. All too often people are left wanting, as they aren't equipped with the right psychological tactics to get these things done.
Not anymore.
James Daugherty is an intelligence expert & former CIA Spy who specializes in all forms of human behavior. But there's one communication trait which is critical to winning - persuasion. A spy would be highly ineffective without it.
However, he never realized quite how much his ability to persuade others, whilst working in the field as an American spy, would help everyday people in civilian life.
Imagine if you could effectively massage conversations in your favor, without manipulation or deception, to effortlessly bring people round to your way of thinking.
In this insightful and functional audiobook, Daugherty gives listeners a firsthand look into the trials and tribulations he dealt with in the field as a CIA operative.
This no nonsense guide reveals how to:



Better understand Cialdini's Six "Weapons" of Influence
Interpreting the classic human psychological motivators
What Aristotle can teach you about persuasion
The different types of persuasion techniques explained
The right way to use the "reverse psychology" principle

A Keeper to Refer Back To

I work in sales so any material you can gather to help the cause is desirable. The author takes us through strategies that are logical and easily applied. The book holds your attention. I found it helpful. Some of the ideas I had heard before and some were new. Worth reading if you need to convince people and sell ideas or products. I had a lot of fun trying to get to some ways to go our of the ordinary, thank you.

This book is power house of simple and powerful techniques that we all, irrespective of our levels of education deploy in our lives. Go for it.

Good and useful.

Very useful techniques. The explanations are simple and full of examples. If your work involves writing, I suggest you read it. Even if you do not want to convince anyone, you will learn how to defend yourself against other people who know those techniques.
