Customer reviews

By Joce-lyn Mitsuki 05 Sep 2014 5

I know it's a paperback book when I ordered it, but when it came by, the words were rather small in my opinion (I'm in my mid twenties). There is also dead space along the sides of the page. So every page is chock full of words on off-white paper.
I say this because I bought the e-book first, I loved the book, then I bought an actual book as a gift. I could adjust the e-book's font size of course, which I always do.

The book is very detailed, a bit of a medium difficulty to read, but if you complete it, it will give you a lot of new insights about the psychology of influence.
Turned out that the other person could not use this book anyway, his eyes could not read it comfortably.

Great book, but the way they printed these paper backs... not so great.
