Robert Greene's previous bestseller, The 48 Laws of Power, distilled 3,000 years of scheming into a guide People praised as "beguiling... literate... fascinating" and Kirkus denounced as "an anti-Book of Virtues."

In Art of Seduction, Greene returns with a new instruction book on the most subtle, elusive, and effective form of power because seduction isn't really about sex. It's about manipulating other people's greatest weakness: their desire for pleasure.

Synthesizing the work of thinkers including Freud, Diderot, Nietzsche, and Einstein, reporting the enticing strategies of characters throughout history, The Art of Seduction is a comprehensive guide to getting what we want any way we can.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alan | 2/11/2014

    " It teaches some useful actions or thinking processes of how to act according to what outcome you want to more often than not happen. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Long Vo | 2/7/2014

    " didn't finish on purpose. it was "EH..." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jack | 2/6/2014

    " A great read. It assumes that you are a liar and manipulator by nature, but once you get past that, it's a fascinating study. Some great annecdotes from famous figures in history make it enthralling in parts. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rosanna Wang | 1/16/2014

    " A bit manipulative, but a whole lot of fun! Great romantic stories and quotes. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alexandra | 1/11/2014

    " This book was fascinating!!! I couldn't put it down. While I'm not sure I could ever actually implement the strategies and carry out a seduction, it gave me lots of good ideas on how to deal with people and win them over to my point of view in a way they will actually enjoy. I think the Machiavellian slant is kind of funny. If you're really so cold and calculating about it, the seduction turns into nothing more than a power game really, and what's the fun in that? I sort of felt like smacking him over the head and saying HELLOOOOOO in that regard. But I found the profiles, archetypes, strategies, and anecdotes absolutely fascinating. I want to read the rest of his books now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Douglas | 1/9/2014

    " A great book on all the different ways of seduction. You get a good general idea, but the book does not give you practical examples that you can use to give you a better understanding of the strategy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kitty | 1/9/2014

    " This book is incredible and evil. It will literally guide you into how to manipulate people, whether it be for business or pleasure, and how to do it so they think it's their idea. In the right hands, it can be a little nudge to help you along. In the wrong hands, it becomes a way to become the ultimate predator. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill | 1/2/2014

    " Somewhat interesting but often seems to confuse cause and effect as it tells stories of seduction and appears to make the implicit assumption that similar actions are always part of seduction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dennis Bauder | 1/2/2014

    " Great read allot of history lessons and wisdom lie in this book check it out "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Philisia Ng | 1/1/2014

    " Seductive.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christi | 11/18/2013

    " All of his books have a cynical undertone but are interesting none the less. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Coco Ginger | 11/13/2013

    " Phenomenal. However, very manipulative if used in the wrong context. Nonetheless, a very interesting book, especially historically. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sema Jakupi | 8/22/2013

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Moira | 5/12/2013

    " I despise this book and people who would emulate these behaviours to take advantage of others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ramona | 3/6/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 4/29/2012

    " Plenty of good examples. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jamie | 1/29/2012

    " this book is very text heavy, not well organized, and very slow in parts. but it is an interesting look at how and why we become infatuated with people, things, and ideas. more a collection of cautionary tales, perhaps, rather than a primer or how-to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John kolade | 4/2/2011
