GET PEOPLE TO DO WHAT YOU WANT by Gregory Hartley. How good is it and is it worth reading are relevant questions. The answer here is as complex as are the techniques described in this “self-help” manual subtitled: HOW TO USE BODY LANGUAGE AND WORDS TO ATTRACT PEOPLE YOU LIKE AND AVOID THE ONES YOU DON’T. What? As I read this book, I was continually stunned at how bad the writing was. Without question, this is the worst word, sentence, paragraph, and chapter organizing I have ever encountered. MO ...more

I might or might not have more to say about this one later. I hate to recommend it, but you're probably better off knowing that these people (Ayn Rand called them "second-handers") exist, and being wise to their tricks.

This is a very deceptively-titled book, as it has absolutely nothing to do with body language. I thought I was going to be reading a book on non-verbal communication, and instead, I got a book about interrogation and manipulating people. Needless to say, I did not find this particularly enjoyable. I continued on, since the author proclaimed that I could use the information in that book to notice when I was being manipulated and combat those attempts. I did not get that from this book. What I got ...more

This book was a little scary, but like the trainwreck you can't stop looking at.

of limited use for most people, in my opinion. Focuses on manipulation and interrogation.

Gregory Hartley's expertise as an interrogator first earned him honors with the United States Army. More recently, it has drawn organizations such as the Defense Intelligence Agency, Navy SEALS, Federal law enforcement agencies, and national TV to seek his insights about "how to" as well as "why." He resides near Atlanta, Georgia.
