About this deal

I'm sure there's lots of info in here that's valid and relevant, but a lot of it is a crock that reduces men and women to manipulators and the manipulated.

They use their powerful personalities and their way with words to sway emotions and to stir up change. While entertaining, the one thing that everyone should learn from this (something that Greene says himself) is that this will not work on a healthy and functional adult. They don't highlight their own selves, but rather their entire focus is on bringing comfort and pleasure to their targets.Referencing Casanova, Salome, Evita, and many others, Greene does his best work in using these examples to explain how they were effective in their seductive efforts. Give your words a lofty, spiritual, literary flavor the better to insinuate desire in your unwitting victims. But if, unlike the sociopath or psychopath, the would-be seducer does have a shred of conscience, living with the results and also the accumulated karma of such manipulative behaviour, would be highly unpleasant.

Coquettes are somewhat narcissistic as well and have no qualms in making their victims pursue them relentlessly. The ideal lover, as the name suggests, represents a fantasy lover who makes the beloved feel lofty and great. The only thing that cannot be idealized is mediocrity, but there is nothing seductive about mediocrity.You are most often nice not out of your own inner goodness but out of fear of displeasing, out of insecurity. You see a man alone, whom nobody talks to for any length of time, and who is wandering around without company; isn’t there a kind of self-fulfilling isolation about him?

Disraeli knew that Queen Victoria longed for a man's attention and used this insight to gain her confidence and proximity in court. Absolutely recommended to anyone who’s interested in seduction, power dynamics, psychology, and manipulation. Although he does not preclude rational love between consenting adults by any means, there is enough evidence here of eternal truths about sexual relations which apply to male and female alike (albeit with different ‘modes’) and in homosexual liaisons as well. If in the opening stages, you can make your target think they are doing the first step, you won the game.All in all a book for the desperate, the unscrupulous, and the empathy-devoid individuals of this world. He offers a sound corrective to moralists who, like repressed ideologues in politics, seem to leave more pain and suffering in their wake than do cynics and a-moralists. Just as religion brings solace as well as repression, so some seducers are simply cynical and cruel while others are exciting and challenging.

American Apparel founder and CEO Dov Charney found the book to be a fascinating study in human behavior.Greene uses Eva Perón, Elvis Presley, Joan of Arc, Grigori Rasputin, Malcolm X, Charles de Gaulle, and Jiddu Krishnamurti as examples. Kennedy, from Andy Warhol to Josephine Bonaparte, The Art of Seduction gets to the heart of the character of the seducer and his or her tactics, triumphs and failures.
