"A fascinating and fitting tribute to one of social psychology's true pioneers."
– Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and author of Stumbling on Happiness
"Robert Cialdini is the Benjamin Franklin of research on influence – a keen observer of human nature, great writer, minter of pithy phrases, and clever experimenter who's able to capture lightning in a jar. This collection of essays, written by his fellow researchers in his honor, testifies to his wide and deep influence on the practice of social psychology."
– Chip Heath, Professor, Stanford Graduate School of Business and author of Made to Stick and Switch
