by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi

The 7 Triggers to Yes: The New Science Behind Influencing People's Decisions

by Russell H. Granger

Introducing 7 scientifically proven ways to masterfully apply the skill of persuasion and get the results you want

Everybody knows that the best way to persuade people to reach the "Yes" response is by using logic and reason, right? Wrong. According to the latest research in neuroscience, most people respond to emotional cues rather than rational ones. Instead of using facts and figures to persuade, you should be tapping into the brain's internal triggers for making decisions. With the new technology of realtime brain imaging, scientists have been able to pinpoint seven of these emotional triggers.

Activating one or more of the other person's triggers will make you a master persuader in every aspect of your life. You'll learn how to motivate a "Yes" response from clients, coworkers, employees, and entire organizations.

Just say "YES" to success.

In this far-reaching and illuminating look at contemporary American life, Zogby reveals nothing less than The Way We’ll Be.

Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us

by Seth Godin

A tribe is any group of people, large or small, who are connected to one another, a leader, and an idea.

Now the Internet has eliminated the barriers of geography, cost, and time. All those blogs and social networking sites are helping existing tribes get bigger. But more important, they're enabling countless new tribes to be born?groups of ten or ten thousand or ten million who care about their iPhones, or a political campaign, or a new way to fight global warming.
