This bold, instructive guide to power of attraction by the bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power, The 33 Strategies of War, and Mastery can make anyone a master of this devastating and timeless art
This mesmerizing exploration of the most subtle, elusive, and effective form of power is a masterful analysis of civilization's greatest seducers, from Cleopatra to JFK, as well as the classic literature of seduction from Freud to Kierkegaard and Ovid to Casanova. Robert Greene once again identifies the rules of a timeless, amoral game and explores how to cast a spell, break down resistance, and, ultimately, compel a target to surrender. Presenting profiles of each type of seducer—including the Charmer, the Coquette, the Rake, and the Star, among others—and the twenty-four maneuvers that will guide you step by step in the game of attraction and temptation, The Art of Seduction is an indispensable primer of persuasion that reveals the universal power of this age-old art.
Also look out for Robert Greene's latest book, Mastery, which picks up where The 48 Laws of Power left off to uncover just what it takes to be great.
