Hi Luís,

Did not know about Les Giblin, so I googled him up and discovered this pearl "How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People".

According to this book, the following six rules will help you persuade others:
1. Let him State his case.
2. Pause momentarily before you answer.
3. Don’t insist on winning 100 per cent.
4. State your case moderately and accurately.
5. Speak through third persons
6. Let the other fellow save face.

Personally I follow Rules 1, 2 and 6 most times. Rules 3, 4 and 5 I use moderately :)

I will try to use them more often :)
Those look like good rules to know. I'll have to learn more about Les Giblin.
