Nick Casanova – Machiavellian’s Guide to Flirting
The key to being successful at love is to be playful: playfully suggestive, playfully romantic, and playfully bantering. Flirting is how you send the message that you’re interested without saying so directly. If you do it well, you can keep your prospect amused, giddy, titillated, flattered, and insulted all at the same time. Flirting is also how you establish that you have a sense of humor, that you’re smart, and that you’re sane. And it’s how you tell whether your prospect has those same qualities. If both of you are in the right mood, these routines can be great fun. The book is divided into two sections, one for women and the other for men. Since it is usually the man who does the chasing and the woman who does the choosing; these different roles lend themselves to different styles of flirting. Despite gender differences, however, most (but not all) of the chapters can be adapted for use by the opposite sex
Nick Casanova – Machiavellian’s Guide to Insults
Have you ever wanted to lash out at someone but lacked the appropriate putdown? “The Machiavellian’s Guide to Insults” takes a humorous approach to dealing with such annoying personalities as the drama queen, the wealth flaunter, the self-proclaimed brain, the temperamental twit, and the talkaholic. Recommended insults range from the subtle and seemingly unintended to the outright declaration of war. Both have a place in your arsenal. Had Machiavelli written a book on insults, this is the book he would have written. He would have suggested calmly wounding your enemy with a tailor made barb without coming across as if you’ve been wounded yourself. Often the best putdown is a comment which seems on the surface to be well intentioned. And ham-handed attempts to relate or sympathize can be the most effective ways of underlining your opponent’s weaknesses. These are far more humiliating than any angry outburst could ever be. Learn how to eviscerate the proud homeowner, the would-be tough guy, the bully, the boastful parent, the second guesser, and many others.
