Do you want to win friends and influence people? Do you want to persuade others? Here are top 5 books on persuasion everyone must read.
The biggest predictor of your success in almost any area is one thing – persuasion – the ability to show people your perspective. That’s whether you want to make a million dollars, whether you want to improve socially.
I always say ”who cares” because if nobody hears and nobody knows about what you’re doing, you can have the most brilliant idea and it will just die, and that happens all the time.
Persuasion means the action or process of persuading someone to do or believe something.
And if you think about this, almost everything in life is sales. We’re selling ourselves to others. Sell or be sold.
You must learn how to persuade people. And If you don’t learn how to influence people, others will take advantage of you, and your ideas won’t be heard even if they are good.

Use this stuff for cool, innovative ideas, because these books and techniques are powerful.
After reading these five books on persuasion, I guarantee, you will compel people.
Even if you’re an advanced salesman, you can use these persuasion techniques in cold calls, in insurance sales, in car sales, or any other industry, and you will see a massive increase in your closing rate.
