Description

From the creators of the phenomenal bestseller The 48 Laws of Power, a mesmerizing handbook on seduction: the most subtle and effective form of power
 
When raised to the level of art, seduction, an indirect and subtle form of power, has toppled empires, won elections and enslaved great minds. Discover who you, or your pursuer, most resembles.
 
Immerse yourself in the twenty-four maneuvers and strategies of the seductive process, the ritual by which a seducer gains mastery over his target. Understand how to "Choose the Right Victim," "Appear to Be an Object of Desire," and "Confuse Desire and Reality." Every bit as essential as The 48 Laws of Power, The Art of Seduction is an indispensable primer of persuasion that reveals one of history's greatest weapons and the ultimate form of power.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

    Had to read this book a few times to really absorb it. This book has great insight into human nature and timeless seduction techniques. Fun read and surprisingly effective.

    Very good book with great knowledge, only issue i had was the lack of direct examples that would apply to the readers life and all of the mini stories leading up to each chapter.. Get to the point man

    The book itself is fantastic, however, the physical book does not have the problems the rebook does. Would not pay the $16 would go out and by the book.
  • Horrible Editing

    While I believe the book is very good, the editing is really poor in my opinion (especially in the second part of the book). I'm not sure if this is just a problem with the iPad formatting or if the publisher submitted a rough draft.
  • Great Book, version errors

    This book is priceless for life advice. Understanding how to interact with people, primarily, but also understanding what others might be up to, as well. My rating is low because it would appear that no one proofed this eBook before putting it on the iBook store. It doesn't affect the read too badly but it is slightly offensive to charge $16 for a version that wasn't very professionally proofed.
