"'Persuasion Equation' offers a valuable look into a much-needed skill in today's market," says Andrew R. Clancy, Soundview's executive editor. "The book is a Soundview '30 Best Business Books' selection on the strength of its practical, actionable content."

Rodgers, an award-winning author and in-demand speaker and consultant, has spent three decades helping people hear "yes" more often, and now — for the first time all in one place — he puts everything anyone needs to know to go from zero to persuasion hero.

"Soundview executive summaries have always been a crucial part of my professional development," says Rodgers, a Philadelphia native and Milwaukee resident. "That's why I'm thrilled to be included among the authors whose books Soundview editors deemed this year's best."

Right now, the American Management Association is offering "Persuasion Equation" as a free download (a $14.95 value) for a limited time:
