Publisher's Summary

If you've ever wondered what it would really be like to have the ability to influence others, then keep reading. 

You cannot prevent yourself from being influenced and, in turn, influencing other people as you go through life. Since you are not living in a vacuum, there are countless objects around you. Houses, trees, furniture, honey pots, a delicious dinner, and last but not least other people.

It all influences you. It influences your thoughts, and your thoughts influence your actions. In turn, your actions also affect your environment. It's always this way.

Most of the time, you are also in blissful ignorance of what made you do a certain action or think a particular thought. You are simply convinced that you did things by yourself. Of course, that may be so, but more likely it is that you have been influenced by something or someone, so your thoughts have taken exactly that direction.

There is always someone who wants to teach you something, who wants to persuade you to buy something, who wants to persuade you to vote for a party, or who has a certain opinion about what is true, good and beautiful.

From the moment you open your eyes in the morning until you fall asleep in the evening, you are exposed to an infinite stream of persuasion and persuasion. And those that have made these manipulations their mission would like to do that without you noticing. It's a lot easier, so they do not owe you any explanation if they tie the strings to your puppet brain.

The purpose of this book is to let you know:

  • How to recognize these techniques, defend yourself, and use them in your favor
  • How to detect and combat manipulation in a relationship.
  • How to master the art of persuasion and learn about the world of manipulation
  • How to read people and body language
  • How to know what others want
  • How to influence others

This book talks about all these topics and more. And even if you don't know anything about these topics, it will help you in simplicity to know and recognize these arts and to be able to use them in everyday life.

Don't wait any longer, buy now!

A unique look into a side of human nature most of us would rather do not exist but it does and it never hurts to be informed.

Well executed

The information is there and most of the time I would say it is accurate however they are twisted to give the impression of a darker intention.

Great intro

This was a good introduction to those who want to learn about the darker aspects of psychology. It was written in terms that are very easy to understand and is straight to the point.

Not bad for intro book

You’ve got the strong feeling something just isn’t right. And you’ve had it for a while. Not bad for an introduction book. Expected more but it's always good to read books that gives you a refresher! New experience

Good to listen

While Dark Persuasion has an interesting premise and the potential to explore some of the darker emotions guilt, jealousy, obsession the book never overcomes a number of failures in its execution.
