5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book!, 6 Jan 2014
This is a really useful book. Loads of recent research on how the brain works, combined with the author's corporate experience makes this a great guide to influencing others in a way that works for everyone. It helps you understand your own style and how to flex it so that you can be more persuasive and effective at work. Well worth a read.
