The Art of Seduction is a magnificent combination of intellectuals such as Freud, Ovid, Kierkegaard, and Einstein’s work, as well as the achievements of history’s greatest seducers. From Cleopatra to John F. Kennedy, Andy Warhol to Josephine Bonaparte, the book delves into the seducer’s personality, methods, victories, and failures.
The Art of Seduction audiobook: a bold and ingenious manual
There is no space for shame or remorse, just for winning and losing… or possibly for playing gracefully while still losing, rather than winning too easily or in an unseemly manner. To Anglo-Saxon moderns, the attitude toward sex is likewise counter-intuitive. It is portrayed as a reward, not as a’sacred’ entity separate from the bodies of the couple. On the ground, that is a fact. It was a delight.
The Siren, the Rake, the Ideal Lover, the Dandy, the Natural, the Coquette, the Charmer, and the Charismatic are some of the many faces of the seducer. Twenty-four seduction operations will take readers through the process, delivering crafty, amoral instructions for and analysis of this intriguing, all-encompassing kind of control. The Art of Seduction audiobook is a vital primer of persuasion and delivers the greatest teachings on how to take what you want from whoever you want or how to avoid yourself from being taken.
The Art of Seduction audiobook is the book Machiavelli could have written on love if he had been a jaded modern, almost hypnotically repetitious at points. Unfortunately for individuals who want to be “good” in the world, almost every phrase in this book rings true. For better or worse (depending on your point of view), Greene is convincing that seduction is a game between equal players in which the ‘victim’ is prepared to accept what they will get from the process. It is about the transfer of power between sexually alive individuals and should not be equated to Neil Strauss’s and others’ ‘game’ genre.
Greene, who is far more intelligent than Strauss’ books for adolescent losers and the sexually autistic, is not concerned in seduction as a mechanical application of sex rules. He writes on art rather than science. What he is demonstrating is more like to a dance or a ritual (think of the tango), with rules coming from a deeper level of shared or unconscious needs and anxieties, and where, while the sexual aspect is key, it is the process that is important. The Art of Seduction audiobook is also enjoyable for very other reasons. Greene is a historical anecdote master. Each chapter contains well-chosen examples from literature and history.
The Art of Seduction audiobook‘s impact will be determined by aesthetics and fear. By traditional and Anglo-Saxon standards, it is a rather unromantic book, yet it is not reductionist about sex. The natural seducer, one who takes simple joy in pleasure and regards life as a game, will be captivated by this book. I wasn’t enthralled, just interested and grateful. Many of the stories come from high-ranking courtly societies where seduction and romance were limited by standards of conduct that were severe enough to imply suitable behavior but not so strict that bourgeois guilt or shame were introduced into the game of sexual conquest.
