When most people think of the word "seduction," it tends to conjure up negative images of manipulation and lies. But in reality, seduction has another meaning, one that pertains to enticement, to being lured away from the tedium of everyday life toward exciting possibilities.

When most people think of the word "seduction," it tends to conjure up negative images of manipulation and lies. But in reality, seduction has another meaning, one that pertains to enticement, to being lured away from the tedium of everyday life toward exciting possibilities. Seduction may come in the form of a person or a situation that provides an exhilarating escape from the ordinary. Author Robert Greene claims that on some level, everyone secretly wishes to be seduced. The thrill of exciting new options, of being singled out and invited to explore uncharted territories and pleasures, is firmly engrained in human psychology. Television commercials for cars, perfumes and home decor are all subtle forms of seduction. These principles of seduction can also be applied to everyday human interactions. Greene's book, "The Art of Seduction," teaches readers how to harness this power by generating an aura of excitement, adventure and passion that all human beings crave. For those who learn how to "bottle" this sense of possibility and excitement, their powers of attraction will know no limits.
Greene, the bestselling author of "48 Laws of Power," is already a recognized authority on human persuasiveness and influence. In "The Art of Seduction," he focuses on 24 proven tactics that will create a sense of intrigue, allure, and powerful attraction. Greene offers tips on how to create a sense of pleasant surprise, as well as how to create confusion and doubt that manifests as an irresistible mystique. Much of this philosophy seems to hinge on delivering the unexpected, so that the "target" is endlessly fascinated. The book also teaches how to understand and penetrate the "dark" or repressed side of a person's character, which they often secretly wish to express. The book teaches how to carry out each step of the seduction in a sophisticated, seamless manner, describing each step of the process toward success. The book also instructs readers on how to transition out of a situation once the seduction has been achieved. Greene maintains that of the many forms of power, seduction is the most pleasant, because it involves pleasurable coercion and willing capitulation. Because people enjoy being seduced and surrendering to seduction, there is rarely resentment in these transactions. These techniques can be applied to any situation in everyday life, from sexual seduction to business networking to friendships. Each chapter of the book highlights anecdotes from some of the great seducers and seductresses in history, including Cleopatra, Casanova, Josephine Bonaparte, John F. Kennedy, Empress Catherine the Great, Errol Flynn, Eva Peron, Duke Ellington and Marilyn Monroe.
We believe that the ability to exude the kind of dynamic, influential personality that intrigues and titillates is a valuable skill in all areas of life. So many people go about their days behaving in an "autopilot" manner, without thinking about the subtle politics of human psychology and interaction. By learning to control and cultivate a vivid, fascinating persona, students of this method can maximize their powers of persuasion and reap astounding results. These skills can be used to influence others in matters of business, everyday dealings, and -- most amazingly -- sexual attraction. This book teaches that arbitrary, "improvisational" persuasion techniques often do not achieve results. Despite the common advice to "just be yourself," this approach is unfortunately not always sufficient. This book teaches how to channel one's one personal power so is to be your "best self" - a maximized, fully realized person of charm and potency.
We feel that this book is useful not only for men seeking to seduce beautiful women, but any consumer who would like to become a more vibrant, influential personality. The subtle forces of persuasion taught by this book are the skills of a great leader, a great charmer, and a great ladies' man. For those who may feel puzzled and confused by their inability to seduce or persuade could learn a great deal from this method. A truly effective seduction is not one in which one party feels deceived or victimized, but in which both parties savor the sensuous interplay of power and surrender. We believe that Greene's intricate knowledge of human psychology offers an intelligent, effective guide to the most pleasurable form of human power in existence.
Best-selling author and public speaker, Robert Greene was born in Los Angeles. He attended U.C. California at Berkeley and the University of Wisconsin at Madison, where he received a degree in classical studies. He has worked in New York as an editor and writer at several magazines, including Esquire; and in Hollywood as a story developer and writer.
Greene has lived in London, Paris and Barcelona; he speaks several languages and has worked as a translator. In 1995 he was involved in the planning and creation of the art school Fabrica, outside Venice, Italy. There he met Joost Elffers, the New York book packager and discussed with him his idea for a book on power and manipulation, the ultimate modern version of Machiavelli's The Prince.
Greene and Elffers became partners and in 1998, The 48 Laws of Power was born. The book has been a national and international bestseller, and has been translated into 17 languages. In 2001, Greene's second book, The Art of Seduction, is more than a sequel to The 48 Laws; it is both a handbook on how to wield the ultimate form of power, and a detailed look at the greatest seducers in history.
The third in this highly anticipated series of books, The 33 Strategies of War, hit bookstores January 2006 and offers a strategic look behind the movements of War in application to everyday life. In addition to having a strong following within the business world and a deep following in Washington, DC, these books are also being hailed by everyone from war historians to some of the heaviest hitters in the rap world (including Jay-Z and 50 Cent).
The popularity of these books along with their vast and fiercely loyal audience proves these are profound, timeless lessons from historical leaders that still ring true in todays culture. Robert Greene currently lives in Los Angeles.
