Book Quote of the Week – 057

“The most effective persuaders are the least obvious. Almost everyone is savvy enough to put his or her guard up against the fast-talkers — pushy salespeople, aggressive con artists, and egotistical leaders. the people who often get through to us, however, are more subtle. they seem likable, honest, and trustworthy.”

“How do you go about becoming a millionaire? I’m often asked this question and ever since I founded Virgin Atlantic in 1984 my answer has been the same: ‘Start as a billionaire and launch a new airline.'”

What’s Your Favorite Book on Persuasion, Negotiation and Influence?

I just finished reading a blog post by Ann Morgan called The Power of Reading: Connecting People Around the World Through Books. In her article she talks about choosing books for others to read and in the past how she’s asked others to choose books for her to read.

I just finished reading The Power of Persuasion: How We’re Bought and Sold by Robert Levine. Whether we are dealing with our clients, employees or our kids we are always trying to influence or persuade in one way or another. Though I don’t consider myself a hard core negotiator, I do enjoy reading and learning more about persuasion, negotiation and influence. On my Reading List I do have a section dedicated to this topic of the books that I have read.

I thought that it would be interesting to try Ms. Morgan’s approach and see where it goes. I would like to continue to learn more on this subject and I want to ask anyone who may read this post to share with me their favorite book or audio book on persuasion, negotiation or influence. I may not get anyone giving me a suggestion, but I hope I do. Let’s see what happens…

Moster Truck Roller Skate Fail

I love this kid so much! You never know what’s going through his mind or what he’s going to try next. Every time I watch this video I laugh so I thought it was worth sharing it here.

 

Jamari loves to be the one in the family to get the mail every day. But in the Arizona heat of summer the sidewalks are usually too hot to run out in your bare feet. So he came up with the brilliant plan of taping his toy monster trucks to his feet and using them as roller skates.

 

Enjoy….
