Good, but felt a bit outdated. I think I'd read too many things that cite the same studies for it to feel novel?

Fifty short chapters, each dedicated to a single proven persuasive approach, make for an easy, informative read.

one of the classics!

The is an absolute must read for students of social psychology, but those not as interested in psychology will appreciate this book as well. Cialdini's book is very well written and explains how easily we are swayed on a day to day basis by things that we don't put as much time and thought into as we should. Cialdini is the master of being able to explain psych science in a way that is not only accessible, but absolutely entertaining. I would recommend this book to just about anyone. Excellent work, Cialdini!… (more)
