The Art of Seduction // Robert Greene


An amoral approach to seduction as a form of power in our day-to-day lives. Thoroughly backed with anecdotes and examples from history and politics.

In 3 sentences:

Seduction is a form of power and is inherently amoral – seducers view seduction as a game and the world as their playground.

There are distinct types of seducers – you should find your seductive character and develop those traits to maximise your potential.

Root out antiseductive qualities in yourself, work on understanding the people you’re aiming to seduce, and tailor your approach to their responses.
