The Trump Master Persuader Index and Reading List

Readers of this blog have been asking me to compile my Trump posts in a convenient index so you can direct others to it. And so I have. I’ll try to keep this updated as I go.

The fun of it is seeing how early I predicted Trump’s rise (8/13/15).

You might also enjoy The Persuasion Reading List that I put together on request. These are the books that explain how I noticed Trump’s persuasion skills so early. He is a natural, but also well-trained in the science of persuasion. None of his campaign success so far is an accident. 

My book is on that list, or you can see it here.
