From the New York Times best-selling authors of Crucial Conversations.... Whether your goal is to change minds, change markets, or change the world - anything is possible for an influencer.

Everyone wants to be an influencer. We all want to learn how to help ourselves and others change behavior. And yet, in spite of the fact that we routinely attempt to do everything from lose weight to improve quality at work, few of us have more than one or two ideas about how to exert influence. For the first time, Influencer brings together the breakthrough strategies of contemporary influence masters. By drawing from the skills of hundreds of successful influencers and combining them with five decades of the best social-science research, Influencer shares eight powerful principles for changing behaviors - principles almost anyone can apply to change almost anything.

    " Really enjoyed this one. So many applications to different aspects of life. I was talking Mark's ear off on how I wanted to apply the things taught here to parenting, work, goal setting, etc. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mariel | 5/12/2011

    " Good examples and a quick read. I wish they had explored more about how to influence people to do things that aren't necessarily in their best interest :)
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Peter | 4/13/2011

    " Great book covering how to make innovation happen. Really nice approaches and solid examples. It also does a good job of explaining how surface copying of successful programs can fail when not all the influence levers are copied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shaun | 4/10/2011

    " An excellent book I gained much from, but I need to listen to again and take notes. I read his other book called "Crucial Conversations" which is also highly recommended reading too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 4/6/2011

    " I prefer the author's pecedent Crucial Conversations. However, this book is unique in that elevates our self-awareness to select multipy influences to successful change or adobt desirable habits rather than relying on (the least effective) verbal persuasion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jurgen | 3/14/2011

    " Good overview of change management and many great examples. Thought I find the model they use (motivation vs. ability) a bit contrived. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kim | 2/16/2011

    " Good book, great framework supplied. However,this book was just too long for my taste and could have been greatly condensed.. too many stories included. These types of books, should just get right to the point and not make self improvement books into long novels. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lincoln | 2/10/2011

    " Good book, with some good examples, though I felt that "Influence: principles and practices" by Cialdini was better in technical content and "Switch" by the Heath brothers was more readable and memorable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dane | 1/19/2011

    " Great self help book. A must for anyone managing a team of people. Great for parents too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sandy | 1/3/2011

    " I loved this book. It is well-written, and inspires you to think creatively to solve problems. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deirdre | 12/30/2010

    " Reading in the context of learning to be a helpful not harmful 4th grade volleyball coach
    Still praying I don't scar them for life "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MJ | 12/19/2010

    " I really enjoyed the book. Although like many books on psychology it tends to over-exaggerate some of the findings discussed in the book, most of the material is based on well known and researched principles. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 12/4/2010

    " Lots of great examples both work and for the personal arena. Definitely a book to read and then go back and work through as you have a person or people you need to influence. "
