«Психологию влияния» знают и рекомендуют в качестве одного из лучших учебных пособий по социальной психологии, конфликтологии, менеджменту все западные, а теперь уже и отечественные психологи. Книга Роберта Чалдини выдержала в США четыре издания, ее тираж превысил полтора миллиона экземпляров. Эта работа, подкупающая читателя легким стилем и эффектной подачей материала, является тем не менее серьезным трудом, в котором на самом современном научном уровне анализируются механизмы мотивации, усвоения информации и принятия решений.

@DeonOpperman1 Also, in the brilliant book, "Influence", the author emphasizes the profound importance of doing favors for people and leaving them with a sense of emotional debt to you.      источник

@Michael_P_USA I am reading "The Sovereign Individual". It is one of those books that gets in your skull and rattles around. Although 1997, it is in no way a dated explanation of what is happening 25 years later.      источник
Истинноверующий book cover
Мысли о природе массовых движений
Eric Hoffer - 2010-01-19 (впервые опубликовано в 1951)
Рейтинг Goodreads
A stevedore on the San Francisco docks in the 1940s, Eric Hoffer wrote philosophical treatises in his spare time while living in the railroad yards. The True Believer -- the first and most famous of his books -- was made into a bestseller when President Eisenhower cited it during one of the earliest television press conferences.Completely relevant and essential for understanding the world today, The True Believer is a visionary, highly provocative look into the mind of the fanatic and a penetrating study of how an individual becomes one.
Dave Collum
@TonyClimate I think you would massively appreciate Eric Heller's, "The True Believer." It is about mass movements--how they start, where they get their fuel from (fanatics), and why people join in. The book climbed into my brain and camped out. Climate changers are a classic.      источник

John Abramson - 2022-02-08
Рейтинг Goodreads
This eye-opening book uncovers how Big Pharma's profit pursuits corrupts medical knowledge, to the detriment of doctors, American healthcare, and our health. The author, Dr. John Abramson, reveals the systematic dysfunction of our healthcare system, which spends an excessive amount annually while ranking lowly in the world for good health. With patient stories and years of research and access to the medical-industrial complex, Sickening boldly exposes the financial interests at the core of the problem and offers a path towards meaningful reform.
Dave Collum
For those who liked "The Real Anthony Fauci" or those who skipped it, I highly recommend "Sickening" by @DrJohnAbramson. Brilliant. Only weakness is he was too busy writing his book to notice the covid vax was more of the same. Be happy to chat, John.      источник

@verity_douglas I've seen a ton of Gates videos. He was like a teenager trying to explain the dent in the car. It was non-stop waffling. If you read a book or two on this, you'd see all the tells. Try "Spy the Lie".      источник
