    Review Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power (E–pub READ) [Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power] Got the regular ol' paper back version not the mass market.

    And still thin cheap pages crammed with text. It's designed really weird like they overpaid some junior designer. Looks like a bible church's buy in bulk to fill the pews.

    I have normal reading eyesight and have to squint / hold the pages inches from my face. I'm returning this copy for the Kindle version and my preference is nearly ALWA

If you want a compendium of stories of great seducers along history, this may be your book. I found the book to be lacking in practical and everyday actions you can undertake to seduce someone.

Review Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power

Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power Read ó 8 Robert Greene's previous best seller The 48 Laws of Power distilled 3000 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 Green. This book is formatted as a list of principles of seduction with each principle having its own chapter full of stories uotes and historical anecdotes The writing style is sensationalist the best way I can describe it is to imagine that a cartoon supervillain is giving you advice on relationshipsIt is interesting but it would be foolish to see it as a literal how to guide for seductionThe reason I say this is that if you take the principles too literally and try to apply them without discretion to your own life you are likely to burn yourself and others while attracting mostly insecure or naive people into your life In other words don t go overboard with the edginess that this book espouses because it s a spice used by the writer and I hope not meant as genuine adviceInstead I suggest this book is best seen as food for thought a collection of musings and stories on select topics with a Machiavellian twist It s got plenty ideas about the dark side of human nature for the reader to chew on for example the idea that desire is mimetic the idea of planting seeds through suggestion and the idea that playing on peoples desires and subtly promising to lead them to their dreams is a uick albeit immoral road to their heartsYou may get value out of this book if you consider it as a story collection rather than a dating guide Don t take the book s advice too seriouslyFinal verdict710 would not recommend but kind of interesting

Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power Read ó 8 E returns with a new instruction audiobook 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 Synt. This is going to be a long review so don t bother reading unless you want a real verdictThe first thing you might have noticed when fixing your gaze on my post is the attached image I d like to point out that this book did in fact come in good physical condition As a matter of fact the reason I post my book with the gold colored lettering faded and the pages tattered is to demonstrate just how interesting it is whether you agree with the message or tone or not I just finished this book this morning and I do tend to juggle two or three books at a time but what I noticed I did with this book was something uniue to my usual reading habits I took this book nearly everywhere Anywhere I went in which I expected a period of time to sit idly I bought this book Almost always bought to work with me even if it sat in my car and I didn t read it on break every time I wanted to know it was there in case I wanted to read it to the mechanic if I was sitting around for a lengthy fix when I was still in college I would read it on breaks between classes I will say this to start this book is engaging The subject matter is fascinating and Greene does do it a service by going in depth which as I ll reveal at the end of this review is also the book s greatest weaknessNow as for the subject matter and tone let me address this in as blunt a manner as I possibly can I am certainly not a postmodernist progressive this is the framework I imagine this kind of cynical Machiavellian utilitarianism comes from the ends justify the means school of thought is the dominant idealogocial lens here Some may be uncomfortable with it and I don t blame them We live in a mostly civilized world and if we were all certain everyone was a scheming sociopath our world would be in even greater bedlam than it already is I m a rather conservative man I believe in some degree of honesty and morality I m also a hedonist when it comes to consensual erotic pursuits I enjoy dabbling in degeneracy if it adds any veneer of legitimacy to my words when discussing such a potentially subversive topic and especially in the way Greene does That said as some other reviews have mentioned I believe this book has SOME universal truth to it but as a whole seduction is not the only truth of our capacity to love and interact with others Notice how a large portion I can t be bothered to tally them all up and give you an exact percentage but I m confident it would be greater than 50% of the accounts given as examples are from 18th and 19th century France be they historical or literary and of a specific social class The nobility was the embodiment of the kind of spoiled celebrity culture we have today in the form of something like TMZ with the sons and daughters of kings ueens dukes nobles and even just independently wealthy families all being spectacles for the peasantry and lower working classes who generally outnumbered them The kinds of boredom that lead to these flights of fancy come from people who are easily identified by a healthy enough mind as inherently flawed broken inherently unfulfilled I like to point this out to others who I talk to about this book because it s a great example of how people who never had to struggle behave when left to their own devices Granted there are examples from modern times like Errol Flynn Duke Ellington and JFK but they all play on that inherent status that these men achieved and there is an undeniable separation between us the commoners of our time and these men ascended to levels of admiration that brings them attention and status that would make seducing anyone even a little easier This is one of my two major complaints about this book I don t know when Greene began writing this but with online dating and such a strangely changed world this book originally published in 2003 as best I can tell is missing a large chunk of insight about how these principles might apply to a modern disposable dating world We do not fancy this kind of drawn out courting any It is not the norm to have sophisticated flirting in exotic locations because most people are not wealthy celebrities or royalty Now again these examples play with some inherent truths and can be applied on a smaller level to the average man or woman but I d be lying if I didn t at times feel excluded by the stature of those being given as examplesGetting back to the morality and methodry of the book yes it is shamelessly utilitarian It does read like a Harvard educated Dennis Reynold s guide to seduction As for it being offensive to the point of being a bad read or a bad product for existing that s just ridiculous Nancy Reagan level virtue signaling nonsense Even I laughed at some of the uotes Greene included there was towards the end of the book a uote something to the effect of a mutual romantic encounter is never a seduction I understand how the morally centered could read that as problematic and rapey but can you deny that when it comes to non serious relationships for those of you critical to the subject matter that some of the ideas discussed here were not in play Certainly the author has what can be described as an apathetic outlook on humanity that much I disagree with In spite of the edgy style of writing can you honestly say that what is being told is untrue if not exaggeratedMy second issue with this book and with Greene s style in general I have another of his on audiobook and I experience the same problem despite the easier to absorb format is his writing style Now as you can tell I m verbose myself I can t help but pour as many details into a point as my mind can craft while typing or speaking them Even I however can recognize the value of brevity when it comes to dispensing advice on matters of social conduct and arguably philosophy I mentioned earlier in my review that I enjoyed reading this book and I did because of its subject matter It is well written and it is backed up by historical accounts which is what Greene is educated in But between the library of uotes and excerpts in the side margins of nearly every page and the excessive examples for some chapters this book does become a slog to read through Again I enjoyed reading it but only when I was in a specific mood to do so hence my bringing it everywhere with me should the mood strike This book is like hard liuor You might enjoy the odd glass or two or a cocktail but unless you re an alcoholic you re going to stick to a lighter drink on most nights if you must drink at all I appreciate the length Greene contributes so that his historical knowledge works in tandem with his wanton philosophizing it reinforces his arguments without having to point to some vague social statistics that probably don t exist or aren t reliable enough to back up his claims in a sanitary enough scientific way but damn if this book doesn t grind on you if you don t read it in bursts which I imagine most people will want to do And those bursts come sporadically for me at least and keep in mind it took me over a year to finally finish this book especially while I finished my last two semesters of classes After the first couple of chapters I stopped reading the uotes entirely I appreciate his inclusion of them but perhaps he would have been better off placing them at the end of each chapter as an optional package instead of formatting the book in a cluttered way that almost induces an anxiety to finish the page before you re overwhelmed by textIn sum I m morally dubious myself when it comes to the number of pursuits I ve had and will have I get it I also agree there is room for what Greene decries as awful habitual love for building a life together with someone children and all is NOT a matter of a lighthearted game as is his description of seduction If the educated but naive read this book they may find themselves goaded into a life of casual sociopathy and that s not what I hope Greene intended to do here He makes no mention of this which is why I m hesitant to assume his intentions but I ll add for my sake and for others who have read or are curious about purchasing this book these principles are not rock solid laws You have to apply a dose of reality to them You can t just whisk away a girl you matched with on Tinder to Paris let alone to another state with no planning or investment They ll think you re coming on too strong and you probably can t afford to take a two week trip to Paris for a random tryst I believe Greene would benefit from coming out with a seuel book hopefully a much shorter one so as to not retread too much of what s already here on the modern era of dating and seductionOverall I give this book 4 stars though on the wrong day I may have given it 35 It is certainly a good book it is well written and informative That s not the problem here The problem is the length in relationship to the structure and the tone which can be offputting if you aren t someone prone to freuent casual sex I get it but Greene either doesn t or doesn t care For the last section of the book Appendix B being about selling things to the masses I wonder if Greene thought his book would be controversial or not Still worth a read but consider this wall of text before or as you do before purchasing it or rendering a verdict

By Robert Greene  8 Summary

Art of Seduction: An Indispensible Primer on the Ultimate Form of Power Read ó 8 Hesizing 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 c. Just for a moment forget about this book Take a pause and try to recall whether you have experienced anything related to what I am going to mention in the next few lines Have you ever encountered anybody who is a little aloof at first and starts building a comfort level with you slowly Slowly and steadily their conversation makes your self esteem high increases your self worth In other words their words start making you empowered and important You begin to feel relaxed and comfortable in their presence You start relying on them for direction and support They use indirect flattery and silence to build tension They also reveal their tender and compassionate side Your inner spirituality beauty and vulnerability start getting targeted You are absolutely smitten and infatuated with the way they are and how they make you feel You were seduced if anything of these has had happened with you Thousands of years ago only a selected few had power The power could be obtained either through violence or brute strength It was a male domain and anybody who had no way to compete with them were the women They suffered immensely both politically and socially They never had any weapons at their disposal However women also realized that men had one weakness It s their insatiable desire for sex A woman can completely captivate a man by toying with their desire History is repleted with many such examples They invented seduction They would tease a man s imagination and stimulate their desire In the process they also lure the men away from the masculine world of war and politics Men found them not only beguiling but useful as well Seduction was used as a subterfuge tool by women Later men too started developing their own version of seduction Seduction is a long journey and the author has broken it into mental emotional and physical seduction We will touch upon a few of the points and in between also discuss history s greatest seducers If you have watched the HBO series The Rome then you will find one of the most interesting characters was Cleopatra She had battle hardened Julius Caesar and Mark Antony under her spell As per the written materials available Cleopatra is often described as physically unexceptional She could transform herself into a one woman spectacle Her dress and makeup always gave her a heightened and goddess like appearance Her voice was lilting and intoxicated The listener would not remember what she said but how she said it She was aware of her mesmerizing impact on powerful men and used it to her advantage She is considered to be one of the greatest seducers The relationship between a seducer and a victim starts with mental seduction It s not necessary that seducers always have malicious intentions If someone is most sought after and people compete for his attention then there is a likelihood that his aura of desirability is going to envelop the victim If the distance with a seducer seems unattainable then the object seems prized The seducer also makes the victims aware of the adventure and romance that are lacking in their lives It gets the victims interested and they see the seducer as someone to fill the void in their life The interest turns into desire The seducer when indulges in the victim s moods and wants starts delighting the latter The victim s thought is completely occupied by the seducer The artistic use of words will further intoxicate the victim s mind It will then stimulate fantasies titillate their senses and distract their mindDo you remember the iconic scene from the movie The Seven Year Itch where Marilyn Monroe s skirt blew up The men went crazy and the scene is still being discussed Her on screen persona made men crave for her Even her off screen image was similar She spent part of her childhood in orphanages One day while wearing a white blouse provided by the orphanage she found it torn She then borrowed a sweater from a younger girl in the house The sweater was too small After she went out the boys gathered around her wherever she went In her diary she wrote They stared at my sweater as if it were a gold mine It was a revelation and later she however sensed a way to gain attention and power She started to focus on her dresses looks and makeup The result was startling as without having to say anything men passionately fall in love with her She had a childlike voice but she learned to make it truly seductive She made another interesting observation She said It was my fault they re wanting to kiss me and hug me Some said it was the way I looked at them with eyes full of passion Others said it was my voice that lured them on Still others said I gave off vibrations that floored them She is another seducer on the list with a profound impact on menEmotional seduction follows mental seduction Too much routine and familiarity can be stultifying and initial excitement peter out The seducer avoids any hints of routine and familiarity and creates a mystery They poeticize their presence and deliberately keeps a little distance The absence makes victims obsessed The seducers make the victim realize that they are actually living some of the fantasies that are stirred up in their imagination which makes them ecstatic They give them only part of the fantasy The victims keep yearning for One person who deliberately used seduction to destroy her adversary was Chinese Siren Hsi Shih She is considered to be a uintessence seducer In the fifth century there was an intense rivalry between Kou Chien and Fu Chai Kou Chien chose Hsi Shih and had her trained in the arts of seduction Fu Chai found her presence mannerism and nonchalant air too irresistible He fell deeply in love with her She drove him to distraction He built palaces for her spent all his time with her and satisfied her every whim He was completely under her spell This allowed Kou Chien to march on and conuer and vanuish Fu Chai s kingdom without much of a fight She had a devastating effect on men Her scents her voice her movement her conversation her artful glances and embroidered gowns everything contributed to her charm and magnetism which completely made men weak for her First the seducer had an impact on the mind of the victim and then emotions What next follows is physical seduction The victim now is already weak and ripe with desire They will follow the seducer with impatience and erotic energy Any kind of signals from the seducer is too tempting and increases the sexual desire of the victim The victim now is brimming with desire The erotomania reaches the zenith The victim is completely under the spell of the seducer and feels too powerless to resistIt s now time to shift our attention to a male seducer a well known one He was Casanova and considered the most successful seducer in history If a woman he meets fire his imagination then he would study her go along with her moods and find out what s missing in her life He would then provide it Casanova adapted differently depending upon the person He would adapt himself to women s ideals and brought her fantasy to life Once the lady had fallen under her spell a little calculation would turn it into romance Casanova always seeks young women who were unhappy It s because they appealed to his desire to play the savior and also responded to any necessity Seduction is not only gender or personality specific When it comes to men it is not only the exclusive domain of people who are macho In history most seducers have been women The author comes up with nine types of seducers The two most important things are knowing your greatest asset and understanding your victim s weak spots It s then your perfect strength can be mapped to the victim s fragility and the author draws an analogy between these two to drive across his points Seduction is also considered an art that reuires patience focus and strategic thinking Robert Green s book reuires maturity First time readers may find him nasty manipulator iconoclastic or an evil schemer Let s accept that all the world s inhabitants are not honest and sincere in their dealings and they never were In a true sense sanctity was never there Most of us have a grey side irrespective of our status nationality and profession What the author has done is to bring the actual truth in front however bitter it may be He has not set out to challenge any dogma or axiom Just treat this book as an interesting study of human behavior It s just a pattern that you can recognize in yourself and others Please don t bring morality here You are well within your right to avoid the subject I have been a die hard fan of Robert Green and find this book extremely absorbing and interesting
