Though the techniques are similar, Lakhani draws a hard line between persuasion and manipulation, with the primary distinction being intent. True persuasion is based in truth, honesty and inquisitiveness, and the ability to tell a powerful story and to meet the expectations of those one is trying to persuade. Good persuasion is a practiced art - so Lakhani gives the listener:
A map for the persuasive process
Persuasion tools and instructions for use
17 persuasion tactics to instantly persuade
The Persuasion Equation
The Six Tenets of Persuasion
Steps to becoming an expert in just 30 days
Quick Persuaders: tools to use every day
Citing the opinions of noted neuroscientists, psychologists, and influence professionals, and featuring examples of persuasion at work in sales, copywriting, advertising, negotiations, and personal interactions, this audiobook supports its theories and shows how to get a message through the electronic clutter facing decision-makers today. The listener will learn to layer on tactic after tactic to methodically and effectively break down natural resistance, increase the emotions of acceptance and desire, and move the prospect to the right outcome: the outcome the listener desires.

Those who can't....
The author narrates this audio book and he is by far the least persuasive speaker I have heard on Audible. It actually made me laugh when the author was on the topic of using your voice to persuade others. The content is unoriginal and disappointing.

Not worth a credit.
I don't think I got anything out of this book... Seemed like a lot of filler and the author seemed full of himself. He also pushed his products a lot throughout the book.
