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.

Seduction

Men, Masculinity and Mediated Intimacy

ISBN: 1509521593

Category: Social Science

Within the so-called seduction community, the ability to meet and attract women is understood as a skill which heterosexual men can cultivate through practical training and personal development. Though it has been an object of media speculation – and frequent sensationalism – for over a decade, this cultural formation remains poorly understood. In the first book-length study of the industry, Rachel O’Neill takes us into the world of seduction seminars, training events, instructional guidebooks and video tutorials. Pushing past established understandings of ‘pickup artists’ as pathetic, pathological or perverse, she examines what makes seduction so compelling for those drawn to participate in this sphere. Seduction vividly portrays how the twin rationalities of neoliberalism and postfeminism are reorganising contemporary intimate life, as labour-intensive and profit-orientated modes of sociality consume other forms of being and relating. It is essential reading for students and scholars of gender, sexuality, sociology and cultural studies, as well as anyone who wants to understand the seduction industry’s overarching logics and internal workings.

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.

What if charisma could be taught? For the first time, science and technology have taken charisma apart, figured it out and turned it into an applied science: In controlled laboratory experiments, researchers could raise or lower people's level of charisma as if they were turning a dial. What you'll find here is practical magic: unique knowledge, drawn from a variety of sciences, revealing what charisma really is and how it works. You'll get both the insights and the techniques you need to apply this knowledge. The world will become your lab, and every person you meet, a chance to experiment. The Charisma Myth is a mix of fun stories, sound science, and practical tools. Cabane takes a hard scientific approach to a heretofore mystical topic, covering what charisma actually is, how it is learned, what its side effects are, and how to handle them.

The War in Iraq. The War on Terror. These types of "asymmetrical" warfare are the conflicts of the 21st century – and show how difficult it is for the world's remaining superpower to battle insurgents and terrorists who will fight unconventionally in the face of superior military power.
