Summary
"We all have a duty to affect others--from the classroom to the boardroom to social media. But how skilled are we at this role, and can we become better? It turns out that many of our instincts--from relying on facts and figures to shape opinions, to insisting others are wrong or attempting to exert control--are ineffective, because they are incompatible with how peoples minds operate. Sharot shows us how to avoid these pitfalls, and how an attempt to change beliefs and actions is successful when it is well-matched with the core elements that govern the human brain"--Amazon.com
Summary
An expert in cognitive neuroscience explores the nature of influence and through the latest findings in neuroscience, behavioral economics and psychology, explains how the best way to change beliefs or the shape opinions of others isn’t through data and charts, but through emotion
