More About the Author

Bob Burg is a sought-after speaker at corporate conventions and for entrepreneurial events. He regularly addresses audiences ranging in size from 50 to 16,000 -- sharing the platform with notables including today's top thought leaders, broadcast personalities, Olympic athletes and political leaders including a former United States President.

Although for years he was best known for his book "Endless Referrals," over the past few years it's his business parable, "The Go-Giver" (coauthored with John David Mann) that has captured the heart and imagination of his readers.

"The Go-Giver" shot to #6 on The Wall Street Journal's Business Best Sellers list just three weeks after its release and reached #9 on BusinessWeek's. Since its release it has consistently stayed in the top 25 on 800ceoread's Business Book Best Seller List. It's an international bestseller and has been translated into 21 languages. It is his fourth book to sell over 250,000 copies.

Bob's new book is "Adversaries into Allies: Master the Art of Influence" and it's now available in paperback.

Bob is an advocate, supporter and defender of the Free Enterprise system, believing that the amount of money one makes is directly proportional to how many people they serve. He is also an unapologetic animal fanatic and serves as a member of the Board of Directors of Furry Friends Adoption and Clinic in Jupiter, Florida.

Okay, that's a strong headline. I'm sure I'm the only one who read a few chapters of Adversaries into Allies, and found herself cringing with memories of doing exactly the opposite of the "right thing" in times past.

Good news: I'm teachable and growing.

Better news: Adversaries into Allies is a handy reference guide.

Adversaries into Allies is a series of life lessons on becoming an Ultimate Influencer. The chapters are really short – so you can read one a day for a few months if you want. This is how I use the book with my teenage sons. They take turns reading a chapter on the way to school and we talk about it. They actually love that kind of stuff. (And besides, I billed it to them as "How to Be Popular" training.)

What I appreciate about this book is that it’s not just about influencing and persuading others; it’s doing so the *right way* so that people feel good about themselves the situation, and about you. This is a departure from many books I've read on influencing, especially in the realm of eeking out a sale.

Remember, You are NOT effective if you have to lead by coercion or manipulation!

In ADVERSARIES into ALLIES, you’ll learn how to simply and effectively master the Five Principles of Ultimate Influence

1. Control your own emotions

2. Understand the clash of belief systems (This will keep you from taking things personally)

3. Acknowledge their ego (This lesson helped free me from my desire to humiliate those who are very egotistical!)

4.Set the proper frame

Bob Burg has written a book that will become known as the standard on creating positive, constructive relationships in business and in life. Not since the classic "Getting To Yes" has there been a resource so useful and so real world practical on how to turn difficult relationships into fulfilling partnerships. "Adversaries Into Allies" is a book that you'll read every year - it's that powerful. This is really a great book and I give it the highest recommendation.

This book by "Dale CarneBurg "-- oops! I mean Bob Burg -- might as well be entitled "How to Win Allies and Influence Adversaries." Bob has weaved his "works like magic" people skills tips throughout to insure you become an Ultimate Influencer: A person who makes others feel good about doing what you want them to do. Since we're all in the business of influencing others, I hope my thumbs up here will influence you to pick up a copy.

Having read The Go Giver a few years ago, I should have known Bob's latest book would be outstanding. But I was caught by surprise at just how many nuggets of genuine gold it contains.

"Adversaries Into Allies" reminded me of my experience reading "How to Win Friends and Influence People" many years ago. It provides uncommon wisdom that can help virtually anyone have greater influence as a leader. But it feels even more relevant for the 21st century, not just because the stories and examples are newer, but because it's more consistent with some of today's newer values, such as authenticity, transparency, humor, and flexibility.

Format: Kindle Edition
It's part of our culture, or perhaps part of human nature, that being persuasive without being manipulative, gaining influence without using coercion, and having power without being corrupt, feels like the equivalent of a high wire act - without a net.

That balance is beautifully struck, and the way in which anyone can strike that balance clearly deconstructed, in Bob Burg's latest book. (This book unpacks the truths behind Law #3; The Law of Influence, from The Go-Giver, taking it much deeper and making it much clearer.)

Notice that the author isn't talking about winning AGAINST your adversaries. The wisdom shared in this book teaches us not to not only convert adversaries into non-adversaries, but into allies; people who will activity try to help us out!

If it seems like a far leap, then all I can say is "read the book." Because it isn't a far leap, just a shift in focus.

In these times when everything is so full of negativity and conflict, when we all seem to always be ready to fight the enemy, this book offers practical techniques that will help us shift our perceptive and, if we apply what we learn, help us lead better lives.

In every chapter, Bob masterfully presents and explains the problem then gives us the solution and teaches us how to apply it.

The book is a pleasure to read. It encourages us to take action and be part of the solution.

A must read!

Great relationships are critical for personal and professional success. Plenty of us have allowed a troubled relationship to sabotage us from advancing in work and life. Bob Burg delivers a powerful solution. He masterfully weaves his expertise and experience into this epic topic. Couched in authentic stories, Bob helps clarify both the WHY and the HOW. Mr. Burg provides us with a proven path for how to turn our adversaries into allies.
