3) Social Proof
6) Commitment and Consistency
This book consists of 50 short chapters where these weapons are at work. Very entertaining and insightful, but I felt that the authors violated some of their own advice by having so many chapters and not organizing them in any particular way. For example, the chapters each demonstrated one of the weapons of influence at work and perhaps the book should have been organized more formally into 6 parts with each part representing one of the weapons. I was very entertained but I am not sure if the book will have any long lasting educational value unlike "Influence".
This is a quick read and I highly recommend it AFTER you have read Cialdini's "Influence".
1) Social Proof Studies
2) Reciprocation Tendency
3) Authority Respecting
4) Commitment & Consistency Response
5) Scarcity Reaction, and
6) The Liking & Loving Response
If you have previously read Influence, you will like this book. If you have not, this book is a good introductory start on the subject matter of social influences. If one really likes this subject and wants to pursue it in more depth, please also refer to other fine books on the subject such as,
How We Know What Isn't So: The Fallibility of Human Reason in Everyday Life by Thomas Gilovich (very good),
Mean Markets and Lizard Brains How to Profit from the New Science of Irrationality by Terry Burnham (Hidden Gem),

A well written book. However, I don't live in the US, so many strategies aren't relevant where I live, in Asia. Didn't realise this until I read the book.Published 3 months ago by Adrian
