    The New York Times bestselling author of Contagious explores the subtle, secret influences that affect the decisions we make—from what we buy, to the careers we choose, to what we eat—in this fascinating and groundbreaking work. If you’re like most people, you think that your choices and behaviors are driven by your individual, personal tastes and opinions. You wear a certain jacket because you liked the way it looked. You picked a particular career because you found it interesting. The notion that our choices are driven by our own personal thoughts and opinions is patently obvious. Right? Wrong. Without our realizing it, other people’s behavior has a huge influence on everything we do at every moment of our lives, from the mundane to the momentous occasion. Even strangers have a startling impact on our judgments and decisions: our attitudes toward a welfare policy shift if we’re told it is supported by Democrats versus Republicans (even though the policy is the same in both cases). But social influence doesn’t just lead us to do the same things as others. In some cases we conform, or imitate others around us. But in other cases we diverge, or avoid particular choices or behaviors because other people are doing them. We stop listening to a band because they go mainstream. We skip buying the minivan because we don’t want to look like a soccer mom. In his surprising and compelling Invisible Influence, Jonah Berger integrates research and thinking from business, psychology, and social science to focus on the subtle, invisible influences behind our choices as individuals. By understanding how social influence works, we can decide when to resist and when to embrace it—and how we can use this knowledge to make better informed decisions and exercise more control over our own behavior.

    It’s true…while nobody likes to be called a liar; the reality is we all lie. We are taught to lie by the very people who end up being most offended by the practice. Our parents tell us to ‘wipe that expression off our face’, when we turn our nose up at food we don’t like—they would apparently prefer us to pretend we do like it rather than admit the truth. Occasionally we are told to use a different tone of voice—a nice one, that doesn’t reflect how we really feel. This is how we begin to learn that sometimes a lie can benefit us in the short term. As such the ability to lie becomes an important part of our communication toolbox. What we are not taught is how to detect a lie—possibly the most powerful skill you can have. As part of the Powerfully Confident Dating Psychology series, in this book human behaviour expert and renowned PUA Freeman reveals the lie detection secrets of the FBI and behavioral analysis unit (BAU) Using these little known skills you too can become a master of reading the truth behind another persons story. The difference between the average pick up artist and the master in their depth of understanding of what makes women tick. The knowledge in this book will have practical applications in all areas of your life but especially to your dating. You are about to discover:How to spot attraction signals a mile off.What she is REALLY thinking & why.Advanced dating & relationships indicators.How she ‘feels’ about you in less than a second.If she really have a boyfriend or is it a test? …And much more.

    Have you ever left a nerve-racking challenge and immediately wished for a do over? Maybe after a job interview, a performance, or a difficult conversation? The very moments that require us to be genuine and commanding can instead cause us to feel phony and powerless. Too often we approach our lives’ biggest hurdles with dread, execute them with anxiety, and leave them with regret. By accessing our personal power, we can achieve “presence,” the state in which we stop worrying about the impression we’re making on others and instead adjust the impression we’ve been making on ourselves. As Harvard professor Amy Cuddy’s revolutionary book reveals, we don’t need to embark on a grand spiritual quest or complete an inner transformation to harness the power of presence. Instead, we need to nudge ourselves, moment by moment, by tweaking our body language, behavior, and mind-set in our day-to-day lives. Amy Cuddy has galvanized tens of millions of viewers around the world with her TED talk about “power poses.” Now she presents the enthralling science underlying these and many other fascinating body-mind effects, and teaches us how to use simple techniques to liberate ourselves from fear in high-pressure moments, perform at our best, and connect with and empower others to do the same. Brilliantly researched, impassioned, and accessible, Presence is filled with stories of individuals who learned how to flourish during the stressful moments that once terrified them. Every listener will learn how to approach their biggest challenges with confidence instead of dread, and to leave them with satisfaction instead of regret.
