Say hello to Robert Levine, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at California State University, Fresno, and the author of multiple books including The Power of Persuasion: How We’re Bought and Sold. The book explains how we’re influenced and manipulated through persuasion, and how we can resist it. It covers a broad spectrum, from how we’re talked into spending money, to how people are convinced to join cults. While researching the book, Robert spent time as a car salesman and a door-to-door salesman. Have questions? He’s hanging out for the next hour—ask away!
