Learn how to persuade cats - the world´s most skeptical and cautious negotiators - with this primer on rhetoric and argument from the New York Times best-selling author of Thank You for Arguing! Cats are skilled manipulators who can talk you into just about anything without a single word. They can get you to drop whatever you´re doing and play with them. They can make you serve their dinner way ahead of schedule. They can get you to sit down right this instant and provide a lap. On the other hand, try getting a cat to do what you want.... While it´s hard, persuading a cat is possible. And after that, persuading humans becomes a breeze, and that is what you will learn in this audiobook. How to Argue with a Cat will teach you how to: Hold an intelligent conversation - one of the few things easier to do with a cat than a human. Argue logically, even if your opponent is furry and irrational. Hack up a fallacy (the hairball of logic). Make your body do the talking (cats are very good at this). Master decorum: the art of fitting in with cats, venture capitalists, or humans. Earn any creature´s respect and loyalty. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jay Heinrichs.

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of How to Argue with a Cat written and read by Jay Heinrichs. Cats rank among the world´s top negotiators. They get humans to do what they want, when they want. So if you could learn to persuade a cat to do what you wanted, then any human - colleague, friend, boss, partner, or even your most cantankerous relative - would bow to your magic. This audiobook teaches you all the tricks you need to get along with even the most stubborn adversary. Among other things, you´ll learn how to get your body language just right, perfect your timing - the art of the pounce - and make your opponent feel calm, happy, purring and in control as you steer him or her away from a fight and towards a mutually beneficial, scratch-free resolution. Surprisingly simple and incredibly effective, this guide to winning arguments will lead you to healthier, happier relationships, a more successful career and even the ability to herd cats, should you so wish. 1.

Persuasion has certain similarities with Emma, another late novel by Jane Austen. In both stories, the heroine is a young woman who lives with her widowed father, and who has an enduring attachment to her eventual spouse from the opening of the action. Persuasion also incorporates certain elements common to Austen´s earlier novels, such as characters from the military, visits to Bath and calculating and cynical suitors. In the end, Anne Elliot successfully combats the destructive vanity of her father and the machinations of her villainous cousin William, and settles down with her long-time beloved, the noble Captain Frederick Wentworth.
