The time-tested secrets taught in this book include Cicero's three-step strategy for moving an audience to action and Honest Abe's Shameless Trick for lowering an audience's expectations. And it's also replete with contemporary techniques such as politicians' use of code language to appeal to specific groups and an eye-opening assortment of persuasive tricks, including the Eddie Haskell Ploy, the Belushi Paradigm, Stalin's Timing Secret, and the Yoda Technique.
Whether you're an inveterate lover of language books or just want to win a lot more anger-free arguments on the page, at the podium, or over a beer, Thank You for Arguing is for you. Warm, witty, erudite, and truly enlightening, it teaches you not only how to recognize a paralipsis when you hear it but also how to wield the weapons of persuasion the next time you really, really want to get your own way.

I'm on my second "listening" of this one!
Super entertaining, practical & fun look at how to be more persuasive, likeable and less gullible. The author narrating is great! I wish everyone I know would read or listen to this one.
