Ever since I wrote the Art of Influencing Anyone, I have been giving out free copies of the book to friends and their friends. One day, when I was in a gathering, a stranger suddenly came to me and asked, “Are you the bloke who wrote the Art of Influencing Anyone?”
“Yes, I am.” As I replied, I scrutinised the chap who spoke to me. He was a good-looking young fellow in his early twenties. I didn’t think I had ever met him before though.
“It’s nice to meet you. My name is John,” he said. “I read your book. It was given to me by a friend. I must say I’m very impressed by your ideas.”
