The Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Robert Greene

Narrated By: Joseph Powers

Publisher: HighBridge Company

Date: April 2015

Duration: 22 hours 55 minutes

Summary:

Robert Greene's previous bestseller, The 48 Laws of Power, distilled 3,000 years of scheming into a guide People praised as "beguiling... literate... fascinating" and Kirkus denounced as "an anti-Book of Virtues."

In Art of Seduction, Greene returns with a new instruction book on the most subtle, elusive, and effective form of power because seduction isn't really about sex. It's about manipulating other people's greatest weakness: their desire for pleasure.

Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, reporting the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want any way we can.

    I usually don't read self-help but I was recommended this one because it's supposed to be indirectly about charisma and social interaction, so it should be interesting for introverts. But I couldn't get past the first half of the book. It's exactly what I expected from a self-help book, and I'll probably follow my instinct next time someone recommend me something like this again. My suggestion for you reading this is: if, like me, you were never big on self-help books, this one will not change your mind. Stay away. If you like self-help books then read other reviews, I don't think mine is of much use.
