Description

When raised to the level of art, seduction, an indirect and subtle form of power, has toppled empires, won elections, and enslaved great minds. The Art of Seduction synthesizes the legacies of civilization's greatest seducers - from Cleopatra to JFK - with the philosophies of important intellectuals on the subject, including everyone from Freud to Kierkegaard and Ovid to Casanova, and the classic literature of seduction. Robert Greene identifies the rules of a timeless, amoral game and explores how to cast a spell, break down resistance, and, ultimately, compel a target to surrender. The Art of Seduction is an indispensable primer on the essence of one of history's greatest weapons and the ultimate form of power.

Great narration, interesting material

Be advised that this approaches seduction from both a historical perspective, a psychological perspective, and a fair bit of "how to". Though some of the recommendations are questionable, the narrator's style is capitvating and elevates the material. Those looking for a "step-by-step" guide to seduction would do better buying another audiobook. Those looking for a relaxing, informative, and interesting listening experience have found the right book.

VERY abridged

This is not abridged, it's a hint of the original. Many of the supporting points of the full book are missing here. The audio chapters do not correspond with the chapters read. The book is two parts. The audio recording is three chapters with Part II beginning 40 minutes into audio chapter two. it's like whoever cut this didn't even care. This audiobook should have been about two dozen chapters: one chapter per personality type and one chapter per strategy. but no.... you have hunt to find the beginning of part II.

Taken Loosely

What made the experience of listening to The Art of Seduction the most enjoyable?

This book was really insightful and got me to think about the games that are played in love relationships. I took this book from a tongue and cheek perspective, and found it thought provoking to get you to think about the things you fall for in other people and the things that you do to get others to fall for you. Others were offended by the language in the book, as he often states "victim" etc., I interpreted it as the author poking fun at the idea of seducing people if that really is your intent, but ultimately we all have free will. If you tend to fall head over heels in love, too fast and too quickly, this book can be helpful to you- guilty as charged- as it helped me realize that I often put my cards on the table and fall for people that often play games with me.

What did you learn from The Art of Seduction that you would use in your daily life?

This book has made me more aware of people, their intentions, and the games that they often play. I think its useful for you if you typically get walked on by other people, if you tend to be a people pleaser, it makes you more aware of the different personality/seduction types, and helps you to avoid falling into a never ending back and forth love game with someone.

All parents of daughters and daughters should read

If you're a parent of a daughter, or a woman who's dating, this book will piss you off. But read the book and use it to learn the manipulation techniques that are potentially used against you. Forewarned is forearmed. Knowledge is power.

Slimy, Yet Satisfying

The worms and grubs of interpersonal attraction and seduction can be found here. I alternatively cringed, laughed, and took voluminuous notes as I listened. Put your ethics in neutral, listen, and, for God's sake, use only the "good side" of the force! This is an fascinating listen.

Morally debase but interesting

Yes as the others have said this book is completely lacking in moral principles but we're talking seduction here, what did you expect?
While I don't agree with many of his ideas I found his stories compelling and his insights into human nature profound.
It was educational and entertaining. Keep your morality in perspective and just appreciate it for what it is.

Informative

If you're looking here for the "Magic book" that will teach you how to be attractive to the opposite sex then you have found it, or at least one of them (there are many more) BUT BE WARNED! this book is not for those with a strong amount of morals or who think that just by being nice you'll be fine. This book follows the path of the SEDUCER not the knight in shining armor who is always the good guy. this book is about manipulating your situation to your advantage, and it takes a completely neutral stand on the devious tricks of a seduction. if you do not feel you are comfortable with manipulating people for personal gain then do not get this book.

Great and Interesting Read (Listen)

Wow, This is my first review out of many titles listened to. That's how much I really enjoyed this book. Very well researched and layed out. I don't know how anyone can feel "slimy". When you listen you should not see this book as only instructional, but as a historical and psychological overview of how seduction has evolved and played out throughout the centuries of human existence. Well worth the listen. You will enjoy it.

The best book I purchased here

Great book. Lots of phsychology on sexes and their relationship. Explains pretty good why nice guys finish last. While it would be too much for me personally to use ALL rules and instructions in this book, but I can definitely use many of them. Also it definately helped me understand the other people's actions and my reaction to them much better. I would say the book is much more useful for guys rather than women. Guys, read it.

How people really are

Everything explained here is self-evident. The author is simply putting words to describe what most people subconsciously do. Yes, the techniques can be misused by heartless psychopaths, but seducing somebody doesn't automatically equate to harming them. This is basically about flirting and attracting. If you are pursuing a man/woman, with long term intentions of forming a loving relationship, these techniques will be much more effective than passively waiting around or day dreaming about your crush. The words in here sound harsh and sometimes creepy, but that's how the author describes a primordial, harsh, subconscious nature that all humans share (whether you like to acknowledge it or not).
