A bit of a one-size-fits-all textbook on persuasion, this book borrows heavily from other authors but casts that previous scholarship in a uniquely accessible light.

Having had the pleasure of taking this course and using this text under the author, I can tell you that this book brings to life his enthusiasm and genuine passion for the subject matter. Cialdini's "Influence" and in so doing, takes the plethora of useful information from Cialdini's work and makes it palatable, removing the monotony
This book is easy to read and provides a clear overview of the primary theories of persuasive communication.
We used this book in my undergraduate course at university (Communication Sciences), and it also was a good reference work for my Master's thesis on strategies for immunization against persuasion. A book I would suggest to anyone interested in persuasive communication! Written in a very fluent and accessible style, with plenty of real-life examples.
Amazing book! Well written, fluent in language, understandable and well explained. This was an interesting read and is highly recommendable for people who want to know the basics, but also in depth explained details of persuasion.
I read this book as a textbook for a class. It isn't bad. I did learn a number of things. It just didn't grab me the way some of the other non-fiction books I have been reading lately have.
