Which sort of seducer could you be? Siren? Rake? Cold Coquette? Star? Comedian? Charismatic? Or Saint? This book will show you which. Charm, persuasion, the ability to create illusions: these are some of the many dazzling gifts of the Seducer, the compelling figure who is able to manipulate, mislead and give pleasure all at once. When raised to the level of art, seduction, an indirect and subtle form of power, has toppled empires, won elections and enslaved great minds. In this beautiful, sensually designed book, Greene unearths the two sides of seduction: the characters and the process. Discover who you, or your pursuer, most resembles. Learn, too, the pitfalls of the anti-Seducer. Immerse yourself in the twenty-four manoeuvres and strategies of the seductive process, the ritual by which a seducer gains mastery over their target. Understand how to 'Choose the Right Victim', 'Appear to Be an Object of Desire' and 'Confuse Desire and Reality'. In addition, Greene provides instruction on how to identify victims by type. Each fascinating character and each cunning tactic demonstrates a fundamental truth about who we are, and the targets we've become - or hope to win over. The Art of Seduction is an indispensable primer on the essence of one of history's greatest weapons and the ultimate power trip. From the internationally bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power, Mastery, and The 33 Strategies Of War.

'Machiavelli has a new rival, and Sun-tzu had better watch his back' - New York Times Around the globe, people are facing the same problem - that we are born as individuals but are forced to conform to the rules of society if we want to succeed. To see our uniqueness expressed in our achievements, we must first learn the rules - and then how to change them completely. Charles Darwin began as an underachieving schoolboy, Leonardo da Vinci as an illegitimate outcast. The secret of their eventual greatness lies in a 'rigorous apprenticeship': by paying close and careful attention, they learnt to master the 'hidden codes' which determine ultimate success or failure. Then, they rewrote the rules as a reflection of their own individuality, blasting previous patterns of achievement open from within. Told through Robert Greene's signature blend of historical anecdote and psychological insight and drawing on interviews with world leaders, Mastery builds on the strategies outlined in The 48 Laws of Power to provide a practical guide to greatness - and how to start living by your own rules. From the internationally bestselling author of The 48 Laws of Power, The Art Of Seduction, and The 33 Strategies Of War.

The 48 Laws of Power: Chapter by Chapter Summary About This Book of Robert Greene! The desire for power is a fundamental human expression. When one feels that he has no power over others or events, he is likely to be depressed. Everyone wants power. Those who pretend to have no desire for power are either deceiving themselves or attempting to deceive others. Power is like a drug that makes you stronger each time you taste it. The more you get, the more you want. Though a fundamental human behavior, the desire for power is considered impolite and selfish. It is widely held that those who seek power must seem to have no interest in it, and on the contrary they must pretend to care only about others. The one who can disguise his pursuit of power with his care for others ends up becoming the most powerful. This seems paradoxical but the fact remains that you cannot honestly and forthrightly pursue power. You invariably have to disguise both your means and your ends. The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene is a collection of "laws" based on historical and philosophical anecdotes. These laws are amoral as they themselves don't take into account any sense of right or wrong. Instead, the laws focus on how one can increase their influence over any situation, regardless of their moral consequences. This book explores the nuances of manipulating people around you for establishing power. The book focuses on how to gain power in any situation, regardless of whether it's morally right or wrong, and it uses specific anecdotes from history to illustrate these "rules of power." These laws may seem scandalously frank, but you can apply them without violating any of the strictures of public morality, which, according to Robert, is the way to get the best results. Here Is A Preview Of What You Will Get: In The 48 Laws Of Power, you will get a detailed summary of the novel In The 48 Laws Of Power, you will get some fun multiple choice quizes, along with answers to help you learn about the novel.

Achieving Your Wildly Important Goals

The Four Disciplines of Executionis about a simple, proven formula for reaching the goals you want to reach as a business or individual. In Covey's experience, the thing that most undermines the ability to execute goals is what he calls the Whirlwind: those urgent tasks that must be done simply to keep an organization alive. As Covey shows, the only way to execute new, important goals is to separate those goals from the Whirlwind. The Four Disciplines allow leaders to create a strategy that requires a change in behaviour, since only by ensuring that everyone on the team understands the goal, knows what to do to reach it and knows whether progress is being made, will a leader produce consistent breakthrough results while sustaining the urgent work of the Whirlwind. The Four Disciplines of Executionare:1. Focus on the Wildly Important; 2. Act on the Lead Measures; 3. Keep a Compelling Scoreboard; 4. Create a Cadence of Accountability. For more than a decade FranklinCovey has been studying what it takes to achieve important goals, and in this book they share success stories from a wide range of companies that have implemented the Four Disciplines to result in greater profits, increased market share and improved customer satisfaction. This way of thinking is essential to any company that wants to not only weather, but thrive in this economy. This edition is specifically adapted for the South Asia market by Rajan Kaicker, CEO of FranklinCovey India, featuring anecdotes and advice to reflect this emerging market.
