Artful persuasion |
There's really nothing mysterious about getting people to change their minds. No special, inborn gifts. No subliminal tricks. Instead, the best persuaders--advertisers, salespeople, politicians, spin doctors--depend on the fact that everyone responds to messages in just two ways: thoughtfully or mindlessly. And they know how to manipulate these two persuasion routes to make even the most doubtful say yes.
Jam-packed with fascinating case studies and surprising examples, this comprehensive, entertaining how-to guide puts the powerful tool of persuasion at anyone's disposal. It explains:
- How the master persuaders -the Churchills, Lincolns, and Roosevelts- create powerful, memorable messages that convince people of their arguments' logic and rightness.
- How successful persuaders exploit the psychological triggers that cause people to subconsciously move from no to yes.
