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.
Robert Greene has a degree in classical studies and is the author of several internationally bestselling books, including The 48 Laws of Power and The 50th Law.
