It depends on how to persuade. If it is rational - then it is better to start with a textbook on logic, well, plus a thread of a course on rhetoric (so that your attempt to convince does not sound boring). If emotionally - then better something about acting. If physically - then you are in the boxing section. Or buy a gun. By the way, this can be useful for you in the "induce to action" part :)
the question of persuasion / motivation rests on charisma. If you are a charismatic person, then you don't really need books. Well, if not, then the most correct advice from the books will "fail". Science does not know how to develop charisma. Alas.
And read Alex Krol on Facebook facebook.com - now is the very moment when his creative activity is at its peak, he writes in an unusual way and his words prompt action.
Robret Chladini "The Psychology of Influence", Mikhail Litvak "Psychological Aikido", this is what I would recommend, but the list is longer.
Carnegie was certainly good, but his advice is a little outdated in the modern world (many people know his books, so the effect is the opposite), but the author is worthy, it's worth reading it.
ps The issue of a person's persuasion is very controversial from the point of view of ethics (in "Psychological Aikido" it is considered a little), therefore it is worth considering whether this is at odds with the norms of your ethics.
D. Carnegie "how to win friends and influence people"
Roughly speaking, the classic of the genre among the books on establishing contacts with people. I read it at one time, because I was forced at work, but I was satisfied. The book contains a lot of practical advice, not without water, of course, in my opinion, but I think that you can find something in it for yourself.
