Gentle Art of Persuasion by Chester Porter

Book Description

The Gentle Art of Persuasion teaches you how to argue effectively! Much of life is spent in arguing, domestically, at work, professionally, or it just happens that way. Most arguments are futile wastes of time. Neither the participants nor the audience learn anything. Between men in crowded pubs arguments can even lead to physical fights, usually for no purpose. Yet intelligent argument is often the only sensible way to advance our many causes, to spread knowledge and to achieve progress. It is one thing to sound impressive, to devastate the opposition, to make a great impression. It is by no means the same thing to change people's minds, to convince them by your arguments. Persuasion is achieved more often than not by quiet, rather than devastating argument. Learn from someone who knows how to get his point across in the most effective, and charming, way.

Author Biography - Chester Porter

Chester Porter retired from the Bar on 30 June, 2000. The Bar Council of NSW made him an Honorary Life Member in August 2000 for his exceptional service to the Bar and the profession of law. As barrister Peter Clyne once commented: 'I had the doubtful pleasure of being cross examined by Chester. That experience is rather like having your throat cut, quietly, courteously and swiftly'.
