What separates average persuaders from extraordinarily successful ones?
Using the same combination of rigorous scientific research and accessibility that made his Influence an iconic bestseller, Robert Cialdini explains how the best communicators capitalize on “privileged moments” in which audiences become receptive to a message before they experience it.  Optimal persuasion is achieved through optimal pre-suasion.  To change behavior in others, savvy pre-suaders  know that “it’s what you do before you do what you do” that’s important.
