From the publisher: "Spinfluence will appeal to crooked politicians, media manipulators and corporate big-wigs alike, in fact anyone interested in how to exploit people for profit or power. Covering fun techniques and tactics such as emotional hijacking, brainwashing and hysteria harnessing - Spinfluence is a glorious and insightful read about how to bend the truth and subvert the will of the herd."

What La Generalista has to say:

Spinfluence is an entertaining and easy-to-read primer on all things propaganda. Full of delightful imagery and quotes from many of the more famous masters of the dark art, Spinfluence explains tradecraft and jargon in a simple tongue-and-cheek manner. This is a must have addition for any collector, if only for a coffee table conversation starter.
