Learn the rules of persuasion to succeed in life and business from former New York Times editor and author, Trish Hall.

"Are there rules for argument, for persuasion, for convincing people that they should listen to you? Yes, there are. Although it’s challenging to change minds, there are fundamentals of persuasion, techniques for bringing people over to your side not only in written arguments, but in life."

—from Writing to Persuade by Trish Hall
