    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. The styles of decision making is less thought of, the book places this at the forefront to cater practical advice to leaders attempting to persuade their managers. Then it flows to mechanics of stereotypical persuasion between genders, like and like, how to effectively persuasion to improve receptivity and persuasion of the masses. Ending it beautifully is managing the exceptional difficult people and situations. ;)

    Normally I just find a lot of HBR books to be an amalgamation of common wisdom just worded in an appropriate manner. They tend to have more of 'strategic' sense rather than actual implementation worthy suggestions. Same is the case with this book. Barring two articles (Harnessing the Science of Persuasion and Telling Tales), I found others to be more of 'Okay, I know this, but what do I do about it?'. Still giving it a good rating cause of the above-mentioned 2 articles. Normally I just find a lot of HBR books to be an amalgamation of common wisdom just worded in an appropriate manner.
