    Default Persuasion Books

    I was wondering what books you guys might recommend to do with persuasion?

    I'm struggling to find much to do with it on google, but am quite interested in reading on it.

    There's one called "how to make friends." There's more to the title but that's all I remember. Good book though.

    Marvillo has made a great suggestion. This is the book he's talking about.

    "How to Win Friends and Influence People" the author is Dale Carnegie.

    I've read that one, thinking of getting "persuasion: the art of influencing people" as well (I can't remember the author), but am unsure where to go after that one. I'm focusing a little more heavily on persuasion that other things, since it's something that I need to apply everyday in my line of work.

    You don't need to read another what you need is to put into practice in the first one that you read.

    In field experience is the best thing for you. Reading another persuasion book will be a waste of time in comparison if you haven't put into practice what you've learned from the first one.

    I picked up a few nice tips by reading "You Can Read Anyone". It helps you learn how to sort people, moment by moment, based upon their mood, and figure out what things they would be more or less likely to do under a given circumstance. Pretty interesting read.

    That book really opened my eyes to a few things. The difference between Self-Esteem and Ego is a really important concept to understand. And the effect of someone's energy level on their self-control is quite fascinating. Overall, the book is pretty basic, I wasn't thrilled with it. But I definitely learned a fair amount about stuff I had never even thought of before.
