Reviews - What do our customers think?
The title doesn't fit the content  Aug 18, 2009
If you are looking for a book on "Principles of Persuasion" as taught by the philosophies of men you will find this book a good introduction to that topic.

If you are looking for a book outlining the genius in which Jesus spoke and taught, you will not find that content here.

I gave the book a considered try, reading page after page waiting for the topic to line up with the title.
Finally after having read half the book, I gave up.
Scanning through the remaining 2nd half of the book, I concluded with disappoint, that the books title is totally misleading.

I have no idea why the author would have even attempted it.
There are a multitude of books on the subject of "Persuasion" using the philosophies of men, why would an author regurgitate bits and pieces of that, calling it "Influencing Like Jesus"?

Some topics include:
- Know your audience (connecting to them by similarities)
- Know your audience (understanding their needs)
- Know your audience (ask for their opinion)
- Tell stories
- Construct contrasts
- Use metaphors
- Use compelling evidence
- Build a coalition
- Create, communicate and carry out consequences
- Developing your influencing planning worksheet

I gave the book 1 star for this reason.
Look through the content before your buy.
Influence with Integrity  Nov 2, 2008
A solid foundation in the delicate art of influencing others in a positive, God-honoring way. Too many secular books on influence promote techniques rooted in manipulation or even subtle intimidation. But that's not Zigarelli's approach. He presents the fifteen essential elements of influence in a straightforward, practical format, all ready for immediate application within the bounds of Christian ethics and deep respect for others. This is an excellent resource for everyone who wants to influence with integrity. It was even helpful to me as an experienced lawyer.

About the reviewer: Stephen Bloom is a Christian lawyer and author of The Believer's Guide to Legal Issues, an entertaining and engaging plain english guide to real life legal issues written especially for non-lawyers.
