This is a deceptively useful book. It is a very clear and simple read, but there is a lot of helpful information. What the author has done is take an academic literature review and turn it into a practical "how to" guide.

Using plain English and a conversational style, a lot of rigorous research has been reduced into easy examples. The lessons of each example are explained and then summarised. At the end of the book, all of the lessons are placed into one "strategy list".

There isn't the detail and insight of say Kahneman's "Thinking, Fast and Slow or Cialdini's "Influence: Science and Practice" but "How to get People to do Stuff" is a good primer.

This is a superb pocket book for easy reference. The 'tips' on how to get others to do things naturally are excellent. But of course they are not just tips they are based on researched behavioral psychology. Thanks.

Great book with some very useful pointers for different scenarios. There were hundreds of strategies in this book so will definitely need to keep referring to this book

My kids were a bit intimidated when I got the book. Fortunately for them, or unfortunately for me, there is still no magic wand inside. Plenty of useful info though!
