Product Description
A revelatory exploration of the science of persuasion, from the author of the international bestseller, Influence.

Influence established Cialdini as the world’s foremost authority on the science of persuasion, winning plaudits from such figures as Dan Pink, Chip Heath and Tom Peters. In Pre-suasion, Cialdini builds on his investigations into the subtle world of influence to reveal that the best persuaders succeed not only because of what they say or how they say it, but because of what they do in the moment before they deliver their message. In the process he draws on a series of compelling case studies and a profound understanding of human psychology to offer a ground-breaking work that is both fascinating and brilliantly practical.

About the Author

Robert Cialdini has spent his entire career researching the science of influence, earning him an international reputation as an expert in the fields of persuasion, compliance, and negotiation. Currently Dr Cialdini is Regents' Professor Emeritus of Psychology and Marketing at Arizona State University.

In the field of influence and persuasion he is the most cited living social psychologist in the world today. According to Dan Pink’s current bestseller, To Sell is Human, 'Cialdini has done more to advance the scholarship of persuasion than anyone in the world.'

As well as his bestselling books, his ground-breaking research has been featured in the most prestigious of scientific journals as well as on TV, radio and in the business and national press throughout the world. An interview with him in the July-August 2013 issue of Harvard Business Review, titled 'The Uses (and Abuses) of Influence', calls him the 'leading social scientist in the field of influence.' The May 2014 issue of Inc. identifies him as one of the 'Top 50 Leadership and Management Experts in the World'.

He lives in Phoenix, Arizona.

No social psychologist's research has been used more often or successfully than that of Robert Cialdini, who literally "wrote the book" on influence.

[Cialdini] argues that the content of an advertisement or selling strategy is less important than the context.
