This is a 2-book combo, which has the following titles:
Book 1: Persuasion can be used for good and evil. Some people know exactly what moves others to act a certain way, and they know how to guide them in certain directions.
But the knowledge of how to do this, does not have to be limited to a select few. It simply requires someone like you to take initiative and to read or listen to a book like this. In this book, a variety of topics will be covered, including but not limited to: the true meaning of persuasion, tips to persuade others faster and more effectively, persuasion as an art, the neuroscience behind decision-making moments, and problems that arise when people are too persuasive (if there is such a thing).
Book 2: How can you become a master of persuasion?
How do you get your way?
These three questions are at the heart of this brief book, that will reveal many secrets of the persuasion realm many have entered.
Once you learn to recognize the most important techniques of persuading others, you will be able to use them and become better at getting what you want in life.
The most crucial topics in this book include: the 6 best ways to get your way, how to use the heart and not the head, persuasion techniques predators use against their victims, how to use a good story, common logical fallacies, tricks to market your brand better and be more convincing, and how persuasion is related to law.
If any of these topics pique your interest, then I encourage you to get started with this book.
