Want to find it easier to connect with people, build relationships and achieve your goals? Check out these well-loved books about human nature, behavior, and how to achieve success via communication.

Before becoming a master of negotiation, you have to become your own friend. Understanding personal needs, fears, and strengths will make you a confident and assertive person.

But it is possible to learn to anticipate the behavior and characters of interlocutors, avoid conflict and more easily navigate any social situation. Science has proven that everyone’s behavior can be hacked, much like a complex computer program, when you know how.

By reading human behavior books, you will find it easier to understand why people make certain choices, why they lose their temper, how easy it is to like other people, and how to gain attention (for the right reasons).
