Description

"If you watched the entire election cycle and concluded that Trump was nothing but a lucky clown, you missed one of the most important perceptual shifts in the history of humankind. I'll fix that for you in this book."

Adams was one of the earliest public figures to predict Trump's win, doing so a week after Nate Silver put Trump's odds at 2 percent in his FiveThirtyEight.com blog. The mainstream media regarded Trump as a novelty and a sideshow. But Adams recognized in Trump a level of persuasion you only see once in a generation.

Trump triggered massive cognitive dissonance and confirmation bias on both the left and the right. We're hardwired to respond to emotion, not reason. We might listen to 10 percent of a speech - a hand gesture here, a phrase there - and if the right buttons are pushed, we decide we agree with the speaker and invent reasons to justify that decision after the fact.

The point isn't whether Trump was right or wrong, good or bad. Win Bigly goes beyond politics to look at persuasion tools that can work in any setting - the same ones Adams saw in Steve Jobs when he invested in Apple decades ago. For instance:

  • If you need to convince people that something is important, make a claim that's directionally accurate but has a big exaggeration in it. Everyone will spend endless hours talking about how wrong it is and will remember the issue as high priority.
  • Stop wasting time on elaborate presentation preparations. In this book you'll learn which components of your messaging matter and where you can wing it.
  • Planting simple, sticky ideas (such as "Crooked Hillary") is more powerful than stating facts. Just find a phrase without previous baggage that grabs your audience at an emotional level.

Adams offers nothing less than "access to the admin passwords to human beings". This is a must-listen if you care about persuading others in any field - or if you just want to resist the tactics of emotional persuasion when they're used on you.

NLP on steroids

Very well written and told in the droll but amusing way of the Dilbert character! If you hate Donald Trump you'll discover why he won. If you love him then you'll discover why he won. But much more importantly you'll discover that feelings come first and trump facts every time!

Good content, available for free on his blog

This book is a collection of blog posts from Scott Adams. I'm disappointed there is not more original content. You can find most the content in this book on blog.dilbert.com

This book offers little for those who followed Scott Adams during the election season. I highly recommend his blog, Morning Coffee Periscope, and his other book "How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big". I recommend THIS book only to those who have not read or listened to his other content.

I don't recommend this book for anyone who is not a fan of Donald Trump.

Almost hated to keep going

I almost stopped after the first few chapters because I agree with a lot of his theories. Not all mind you because no one person has it all.

But obviously you have to wonder how can people be so against trump and so against Clinton and vice versa. It is such a basic thing that we are simply not evolved enough to use logic and we ignore facts. Logic was not needed to survive. Emotion and pro creation are required to survive. So basic lol

But it helps understand what I see all around me and now I have to figure out how to deal with millions of realities. Who can you even talk to that isn’t going to ignore the facts and open their mind. Not many

A cerebral experience.

I enjoyed the many times my brain was near overloaded by the many interesting ideas and perspectives. Great story full of useful information.

I was not so persuaded

I really enjoyed a few sections of this book. The discussion about why being hyper focused on the facts doesn't help you win really resonated with me and explains a lot about disagreements I've had with my wife. The hypnotism parts were intriguing, too. Way too much of this book is a not very convincing defense of Scott's belief that Trump is a secret mastermind of persuasive skill. Maybe I hoped the parts would be funnier or more insightful, but they seemed repetitive and flat. If you you are a fan of Donald Trump, you will probably like this book much more than I did.

Lesson in persuasion, influence & cognitive biases

The author is very knowledgeable about how natural cognitive biases can be exploited to persuade and influence individuals and groups. The author also holds, in my opinion, twisted ideas about ethics regarding the current president, his campaign, and his presidency. Admittedly, I am unable to separate my agreement on the persuasion topic from my intense disagreement with Scott Adams' ethical viewpoints.

An Intro to the Post Fact World

This book is terribly depressing but also very true. I cried at how accurate this book is. Scott nails why liberals lost the 2016 election in a world where rhetoric and manipulation rule over facts. I truly hate how true this book is. Rashomon is more real now than ever.

Disappointed

This book became a slog before I finished it. I was hoping for some useful information but I was able to get very little from it.

Scott Adams narrates it and he doesn't have the best voice for narration. I could put up with that but I found it hard to keep my mind from wandering. Additionally, this book provides a long list of persuasion tips but since it is an *audio* book, it is impossible to go back and see that list to get a better sense of it. I think it would have been better as a physical book.

In an attempt to bolster his bona fides at the beginning, Scott states that he is not a Trump supporter and has extreme political opinions. He gives two examples:
1) Groups of people should be given preferential treatment according to their skin color.
2) Some groups of people should not be allowed to participate in the political process surrounding an issue if they don't *bear the responsibility* for it. I found this one to be particularly interesting since he later admits that he never votes but thinks it is OK to give political and persuasion advice. Kind of like when your childless friends try to tell you what you are doing wrong with your kids.

I had a hard time getting past these issues but thought I may be able to learn from someone I fundamentally disagree with. The problem is that much of what he says is contradictory. This is stated in the subtitle "Persuasion in a world where facts don't matter" but it really boils down to claims that he is able to see things others can't. Since facts don't matter, who are you to say it is true or isn't?

The tips themselves have some useful information, you can find said list on the Internet. I wish I had done that instead of sitting through this awful presentation. I went into this with a good image of Scott Adams based on what I have seen of him on Periscope and YouTube but now I have a bad image and will heavily discount him in the future.

Convinced

Scott Adams narrating his own book took it to the next level. Will listen again.

Sehr Interessant

Sehr schönes Hörbuch mit guten Tipps und Tricks, mit Blicken in die Dritte Dimension! Ich hab es jetzt schon 10x gehört. Man muss kein Trump Supporter sein, aber es ist schon interessant zu erleben wie Trump das durchgezogen hat!

If you like Coffee this is for you

Why win small if you can WIN BIGLY? Scott Adams explains you what really happened in the 2016 election and it's perfect. Buy yourself a copy, because you don't want to be the only one who doesn't get it!

interesting analysis on the 2016 election

repeated itself occasionally; not overwhelmingly interesting for readers of Adams' blog, since a lot of content has been taken from it; interesting for anyone who would like a explanation for Adams' prediction techniques a his perception filters on the 2016 election
