These 4 extraordinary eBooks offer you an unprecedented toolset for persuading, influencing, inspiring, and motivating everyone around you. In How to Argue: Powerfully, Persuasively, Positively, Oxford's Jonathan Herring teaches you how to calmly and confidently persuade in any environment -- free of fear, confusion, and intimidation. You'll earn practical skills that make some people so articulate and compelling… how to handle difficult people and heated situations… how to make your point more powerfully than ever before. Next, in The Personal Credibility Factor: How to Get It, Keep It, and Get It Back (If You've Lost It), renowned personal coachSandy Allgeier shows how to systematically build your personal credibility -- the #1 attribute in earning trust and success. Allgeier's hands-on assessment tool will help you bring more authenticity and transparency to your interactions, and her practical guidance on listening will help you earn others' trust even if you ultimately choose to disagree. Allgeier concludes with seven specific steps you can take every day to increase personal credibility, and rebuild credibility you've already lost. Then, in How to Get What You Want...Without Having to Ask, best-selling author Richard Templar offers up 100 clever, simple, pain-free ways to get people to happily say "yes" to you. You'll discover bite-size techniques for getting what you want without saying a word… and when you do still have to ask, you'll find the techniques and words that'll get the job done. Finally, in Making Sense of People: Decoding the Mysteries of Personality, renowned psychiatrist and neuroscientist Samuel Barondes shares practical tools for understanding what individuals are really like -- and how they got that way. He offers a complete system for assessing each person's traits, character, and sense of identity, integrating those elements into a unified picture, and using it to be more effective in every area of your life. Learn how to supplement your intuition to choose more satisfying relationships, recognize telltale signs of dysfunction and danger, and savor the complexity and uniqueness of everyone you meet!
