    "The World Without Us is a compelling piece to read. The idea behind this book is for us to imagine an Earth without humans and how this would impact the environment. Highly convincing, this is a great example of what persuasive research can be. It really makes you think about how much we impact the world and how we are the root of the environmental problems and yet our complete demise is not necessarily the only solution. A very thoughtful read, I highly recommend it. "

    "I believe in the value of persuasive research. It is important to be able to showcase your ideals and present them in a manner that could get your cause championed.

This is a non fiction book that can assist any parent with difficulties in this area that kids deal with."

    "I picked this book up out of curiosity. I don't know much about economics, but after reading this, I feel like I know a lot more. If you're looking to get into the world of economics, or just looking in general to strengthen your repertoire, go for it!"

    "Notes from No Man's Land is a modern day example that the world of the written word isn't fully explored. This story takes you by surprise right away and it isn't afraid to shock you so watch out. I wouldn't recommend it for the faint of heart."

    "This particularly interesting text you learn of Henrietta Lacks, and her immortal cells, which are used in research to this day. The most engaging part of the book involves the ethical concerns of harvesting these cells unknowingly from Henrietta, and how she lies in an unmarked grave relatively unheralded while her cells were of such use. Its a very persuasive take, and makes a case that African Americans have suffered for the advancement of research, but gained little to nothing from it."

    "This book has absolutely nothing to do with persuasion. This book is all about rape cases in Missoula Montana and nothing else. If you're looking for research on persuasion, go elsewhere!"
