Have you ever been tricked into saying yes or into buying something that you didn't really want? Have you ever wondered why you acted in this way so you could avoid such ploys in the future? Understanding the six principles of persuasion will provide answers to these questions and many more.

In both our personal and business lives we need to communicate our ideas and preferences so that they are more palatable and attractive than the alternatives, because most people have their own agenda.

Learn the basic social principles that govern getting to "yes"!

Over 30 years of scientific research has uncovered six basic tendencies of human nature which influence the likelihood of receiving a positive response to any given request. These six principles of persuasion provide a framework for understanding influence techniques used frequently by businesses and politicians in society, and a structure for giving our own communications more perspective and attraction.
