Guy Kawasaki's acclaimed books have established him as the entrepreneur's entrepreneur. Now he turns to the mystery of influence, and offers a new take on this key force that drives any successful business or personal interaction. This book's fundamental message is that in any transaction the goal is not to get your own way, but to bring about a voluntary, enduring, and delightful change of heart in other people, by working with and through them and enlisting their own goals and desires. It's enchantment that enables us to maneuver through difficult decisions, break people's entrenched habits, defy the wisdom of crowds, and get colleagues to work for long-term goals. Kawasaki's advice includes: how to achieve rapport, credibility, and trust; how to help people enchant themselves; how to overcome resistance; how to enchant your employees--and your boss; and how to resist enchantment.--From publisher description

Selling the dream : how to promote your product, company, or ideas, and make a difference, using everyday evangelism by Guy Kawasaki ( Book )
5 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 560 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Guy Kawasaki's phenomenal success at Apple Computer and as a start-up entrepreneur was the result of an innovative approach to sales, marketing, and management called evangelism. Evangelism means convincing people to believe in your product or ideas as much as you do, by using fervor, zeal, guts, and cunning to mobilize your customers and staff into becoming as passionate about a cause as you are. Selling the Dream is a handbook and workbook for putting evangelism into action. Kawasaki charts a complete blueprint for the beginning evangelist that covers such topics as how to define a cause (whether it is a business, like Windham Hill Records or the Body Shop, or a public interest concern, like the National Audubon Society or Mothers Against Drunk Driving), how to identify good and bad enemies, how to deliver an effective presentation, and how to find, train, and recruit new evangelists. One of the highlights of the book is a short course in developing an evangelistic business plan, illustrated by the complete, original Macintosh Product Introduction Plan

APE, author, publisher, entrepreneur : [how to publish a book] by Guy Kawasaki ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 2011 the publisher of Guy Kawasaki's New York Times bestseller, Enchantment, could not fill an order for 500 ebook copies of the book. Because of this experience, Guy self-published his next book, What the Plus! and learned first-hand that self-publishing is a complex, confusing, and idiosyncratic process. As Steve Jobs said, 'There must be a better way.' With Shawn Welch, a tech wizard, Guy wrote APE to help people take control of their writing careers by publishing their books. The thesis of APE is simple but powerful: When a self-publisher successfully fills three roles--author, publisher and entrepreneur--the potential benefits are greater than with traditional publishing."--Cover
