9780913864715: How To Be Irresistible Through the Power of Persuasion

Whenever two or more people get together, one individual tends to control what goes on--one person will usually emerge who influences the other. Now you can be that person.

In this upbeat book, learn the secret of irresistible, powerful persuasion. Succeed with positive, unique approaches to persuading others by capitalizing on that special quality of irresistibility and power that you'll discover within yourself.

Most people believe persuasion means talking someone into something. This book challenges that belief by showing you how to get others to move themselves in a direction you ultimately control. Forget about using aggression,twisting arms, or pulling rank. Zero high pressure. Persuading someone is like a kitten reaching for a ball of yarn. Knowing how to wiggle that yarn is half the secret to becoming irresistibly persuasive.

Author John R. Downes convincingly demonstrates the power of persuasion with a variety of entertaining anecdotes and real-life situations; and he's created an ingenious character named Jimmy Dover to guide you through them. Jimmy's amazing repertoire of powerful approaches demonstrate ways to persuade people that leaves them feeling good rather than manipulated or bullied.

This book is a winner for those anxious to increase their personal power, uniqueness, persuasiveness, and ultimate success.

From the Author:

Many readers inform me that they've read my book numerous times--get more out of it at each reading--and laugh throughout with great enjoyment. It's full of useful and easy-to-use information and techniques.

From the Back Cover:

"Wow is not intangible, unreachable, or illusive. It is the result of conscious effort, pre-planning, and a willingness to try to be different and outstanding."

"Wiggle a ball of yarn with one end dangling in front of a kitten, and the kitten will have a natural, overwhelming desire to possess it. A little boy controlling the yarn will soon discover that the more the kitten cannot reach it, the more it will want it."

"Irresistibility is not caused by too much, but rather not enough/"

"We don't have the opportunity to use our imagination with television, because everything is right there in front of us. And that's a shame! There's a possibility that today's kids, raised on television, will not be as imaginative and inventive as those of previous generations."

"Commodore Starr had his Ray Gun. He aimed it at the debriefer's forehead, and in an instant, the debrief had in his mind every detail of the entire journey."

"Wormwood almost choked. Then he began to laugh. He laughed harder. He laughed so hard that tears began rolling down his cheeks. His whole boring career came down to this moment. The tedious, long days suffering through lengthy, unimportant presentations from stuffed shirts all seemed less miserable now because of the exhilaration of this very moment, this letting loose."

"The successful people are the ones who lay awake nights, because they can never be satisfied with the status quo. The duds sleep like babies. Resisting the status quo is progress."
