Abstract:

This exploration of the most subtle, elusive, and effective form of power is an analysis of civilization's greatest seducers, from Cleopatra to JFK, as well as the classic literature of seduction from Freud to Kierkegaard and Ovid to Casanova.

Presenting the timeless profiles of each type of seducer and the twenty-four maneuvers that will guide you step by step in the game of seduction, this is an indispensable primer of persuasion that reveals the timeless power of this age-old art.--From publisher description.
