Which sort of seducer could you be: *Siren? *Rake? *Cold Coquette? *Star? *Comedian? *Charismatic? or *Saint? This book will show you which. 'Charm, persuasion, the ability to create illusions: these are some of the many dazzling gifts of the Seducer, the compelling figure who is able to manipulate, mislead and give pleasure all at once.
When raised to the level of art, seduction, an indirect and subtle form of power, has toppled empires, won elections and enslaved great minds.
In this beautiful, sensually designed book, Greene unearths the two sides of seduction: the characters and the process.
Discover who you, or your pursuer, most resembles. Learn, too, the pitfalls of the anti-Seducer. In part II, immerse yourself in the twenty-four manoeuvres and strategies of the seductive process, the ritual by which a seducer gains mastery over their target.
Understand how to 'Choose the Right Victim', 'Appear to Be an Object of Desire' and 'Confuse Desire and Reality'.
In addition, Greene provides instruction on how to identify victims by type. Each fascinating character and each cunning tactic demonstrates a fundamental truth about who we are, and the targets we've become - or hope to win over.
The Art of Seduction is an indispensable primer on the essence of one of history's greatest weapons and the ultimate power trip.

Review by Jaylabelle
Great insights into relationships and a wonderful handbook on the world's greatest seducers...
Review by JasonFG
Book by the author of 48 laws of power. This book helps you identify and streamline your seduction style. Are you a rake? Siren? Charmer? It gives historical or fictional examples of the types. Don Juan = Rake. Cassanove = ideal lover. I think Kennedy was a Charismatic (and some other types). I myself don't use the book for seduction. I used the book to identify my victem type (weakness) so that I wouldn't not fall prey to certain types of seducers.

Changed my mind, I thought it was a great book, but the content may be somewhat questionable after all.
