Interesting, but gets boring and repetitive after a few chapters.

Review: Yes!: 50 Scientifically Proven Ways to Be Persuasive

User Review  - Anne - Goodreads

Good and quick read. Consists mostly of scientific researches & experimental results about persuasion and less about marketing case studies. It gets a little hard to read when you get to about number 30. Read full review
