"You don't have to be a manager to realize that no one likes being told what to do. Yet lectures are still the main way we try to get people to change their behavior. Fortunately, social learning academics have been studying alternatives for decades. Patterson and his fellow consultants have now collected their findings in this engaging, example-rich book." - John T. Landry, Harvard Business Review

As someone who has struggled with addictions in the past, I know this prayer all to well. The book “Influencer: The Power to Change Anything,” puts this thinking/belief into question and is very much in line with what I have come to believe (after significant amounts of therapy). You have much more control to influence yourself, family and community then you think.
Whether you are a CEO, parent, president of a country, teacher, ScrumMaster or anyone in a position that requires influencing, in my opinion, this book is worth the time to read and start putting the strategies into application. It has some amazing stories that are woven throughout the book. These stories highlight the strategies for influencing people and how it has worked in the most challenging of situations.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who is, or wants to be an influencer.
A reader may take away a couple decent tips that could come in handy, but this is just another self improvement book that under delivers.

Having said all that, I do have one push back on the book that is a bit of a frustration. The books follows a dozen or so stories of people of influence. These stories are woven into the principles throughout the book. This is great, except, it makes it difficult to find all they said on one particular story.
Still fantastic book.
