Every day we face the challenge of persuading others to do what we want. But what makes people say yes to our requests?

Based on more than sixty years of research into the psychology of persuasion, Yes! reveals fifty simple but remarkably effective strategies that will make you much more persuasive at work and in your personal life, too. Co-written by the world's most quoted expert on influence, Professor Robert Cialdini, Yes! presents dozens of surprising discoveries from the science of persuasion in short, enjoyable, and insightful chapters that you can apply immediately to become a more effective persuader.

What simple message on cards left in hotel rooms greatly increased the number of people who behaved in environmentally friendly ways? -- from http://books.simonandschuster.com (Sep. 22, 2011).
