5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent book on persuasive techniques
6 July 2017
Great book to learn persuasion techniques . It also tells how to defend us from people using such tricks for profit. It uses academic research as evidence to support its techniques.The vocabulary and sentence structure used in the book can be further simplified and made crisp.
Book content - excellent Paper quality - Very bad. It is equivalent to quality that is available on road side or some times on traffic signals at max. 100 Rs. Quality of paper must be improved, here paying extra in comparison to what is available on locations mentioned above. Book not worth amount paid.
The book is obviously a milestone and I started reading it in my Kindle. I wanted to have it in my collection and ordered the physical copy. Thanks to Amazon's service, I got the book very next day. To my surprise, the book is third rate cheap print you'd find on road sides and bus stations! It's not worth the price and shouldn't be spent more than Rs.100 for such a copy.
TL;DR Awesome content. Horrible Copy. Great Service by Amazon. Returned!
The book isnt quite what it says on the cover. Instead of a treatise on influence you are peddled with snake oil and the same drivel that so many other well known speakers on the motivational networks epouse. There are better books if you wish to learn something, if influence is what you desire this is not the book you are looking for
