Description
 
Richard Stengel (au). Our flattery is simply strategic praise, & to illustrate its myriad forms, Stengel takes us on a witty tour, from chimpanzees who groom each other all day long to the God of the Old Testament (who craved flattery but never got it), to the troubadour poets of the Middle Ages (who invented the sappy clichés of romantic flattery), all the way through Dale Carnegie (flattery will get you everywhere) & Monica Lewinsky’s adoring love letters to her Big Creep (faux insults are also a form of flattery). Flattery works best on those who already have high opinions of themselves. It oils the social machinery of everyday life. A surprisingly deep study of the courtier’s art. “Smart, funny & wise.”
