About this deal

There are also a huge amount of historical anecdotes - likely exaggerated to suit the subject matter of the book - and excerpts from other works. He also has a reputation for being a ladies man and being reckless in love, but he never downplays or hides his notoriety.

Greene entfaltet auf meisterhafte Weise psychologische Einsichten und historische Beispiele, die den Leser in den Bann ziehen. The 9 seducers types are sirens, rakes, charmers, charismatics, ideal lovers, dandies, naturals, coquettes, and stars. Personally, I find this book to be better served so you can find positive qualities within yourself and embellish them for more charm and social power. Whoever denounces the book of manipulation,immorality, and other such nonsense is under a happy delusion about the world they live in. Also the exceptionally useful middle part of the book makes you aware of the un-attractive traits in your own personality.The person who will be entranced by this book will be the natural seducer, one who takes simple pleasure in pleasure and treats life like a game. He offers a sound corrective to moralists who, like repressed ideologues in politics, seem to leave more pain and suffering in their wake than do cynics and a-moralists. A person’s vulnerability, what they seem to be unable to control, is often what is most seductive about them. Naturally ‘Les Liaisons Dangereuses’ pops up as a case study in more than one chapter (designed to be a sequence that draws you into the seduction process).

The Art of Seduction explains that surprises work because they create a moment when the defenses come down and new emotions can take in.

It is mentioned in Neil Strauss's book The Game: Penetrating the Secret Society of Pickup Artists as a recommended book in the seduction community. Robert has lived in London, Paris, and Barcelona; he speaks several languages and has worked as a translator. The Siren harnesses feminine energy, is often coy, glamorous, regal, and gravitates toward a life of leisure and comfort. While these are interesting the first time that he brings them up, Greene continues to reference them repeatedly throughout the book, which grows exceedingly boring as he moves through the book. Its shape and color oddly suggest both sexes, its odor is sweet and decadent—it is a tropical flower of evil.

You can use his life's work to gain status, promotions, confidence, and mates by joining Power University. The siren is highly sexual, and confident, offering the promise of endless pleasure and a bit of danger. In 2001, Robert released his second book, The Art of Seduction, which is more than a sequel to The 48 Laws; it is both a handbook on how to wield the ultimate form of power, and a detailed look at the greatest seducers in history. They don't highlight their own selves, but rather their entire focus is on bringing comfort and pleasure to their targets. People are constantly giving out signals of what they lack, you have to tune in to these signals and interpret their type based on them.

Even better, what I learned from Greene isn't only applicable in romantic situations, but in professional situations as well. They play on the human psychology knowing that anything that is easily available to humans is not necessarily valued. Aim at secret wishes that have been thwarted or repressed, stirring up uncontrollable emotions, clouding their powers of reason. American Apparel founder and CEO Dov Charney found the book to be a fascinating study in human behavior. The problem for me was one that many of the reviewers commented on: the book makes this very strange, Machiavellian turn, making seduction into a game of power, targets, and victims.

If we knew how to play our own part in the game with others who knew how to play theirs (if, in fact, the aristocratic court of Japan or Louis XVI became democratised with leisure and an instinct for pleasure for all) might not life be not only more interesting but less deadly dull? If in the opening stages, you can make your target think they are doing the first step, you won the game. And of course he rationalizes his whole philosophy by suggesting in many places that people who aren't ok with deception and dishonesty have no value (and should be avoided at all costs).An easy conquest has a lower value than a difficult one; we are only really excited by what is denied us, by what we cannot possess in full.
