Description
If we as Americans want better political leaders, this book argues, than we must become better followers. The way we do that is by becoming more savvy, tough, and questioning and understanding the tricks leaders use to exercise power and influence. Drawing on research on the psychology of political persuasion, the author discusses such topics as the authenticity of leaders, detection and defense against propaganda, resisting leader likeability, political techniques of manipulating facts and figures, and the relationship between opinion polls and facts.
