Sound no nonsense approach

Very sound and useable advisement. I appreciated the usual alternative if results aren't achieved immediately was not the solution. Good book to clear the clutter

Educational

I taught a class on abuse in psychology in a community education center. This was very helpful in explaining the basics. Too much abuse going on that is very well covered up. Time to bring it into the light and make people aware of it.

Great, quick read. I wish I had this guide 20 year

Great read that takes less than 30 min using language most people can read. Very practical and not overly wordy or theoretical.

Underhanded Methods of Control & Manipulation

It's true evil for someone to "enjoy watching your pain and angst. And methodically wear down your self-worth and self-confidence." Triangulation, blaming, shifting, gaslighting, the silent treatment, and lies, lies, lies..... The one in their arsenal tactic that is most nefarious is "Turning The Tables" whereby you said, "The manipulator "turns the tables" and makes you look like the abuser. They will be pushing as many buttons as possible to get you to lose control and inflict so many psychological warfare."

Concise and well-created

I already kind of knew every tactic in this book through personal experience, but it was a good, concise and affirming reminder of an inner voice crying out for sanity in some insane relationships. I would like to see the writer acknowledge that these tactics are not always used deliberately and with malice. They happen in relationships where one feels the need to gain power and that can be unconscious.

Lots of aha moments!

Understandable description of different types of emotional manipulation.
Chapter 6 has the answer to the confusion that many who will turn to this book are probably dealing with.
Intimacy or intensity! I think it could be the first chapter.

Excellent book for anyone feeling emotionally mani

Truly a great book for anyone thinking they are being emotionally manipulated. If you have any sense that your relationship person is a narcissist, I can also recommend Rethinking Narcissism.

Never Be Manipulated Again

Before I listen it, I couldn't tell if I was being manipulated or not. Now,
manipulation is glaringly obvious. Now I can protect myself. Each one of
the 30 tactics is explained clearly to the listener, and additional chapters
expand on important concepts. All-around excellent book. I'm buying copies
for my friends as Christmas gifts.

Very Insightful

This book was really informative and written in an easy to read almost flowing.
I will listen again. It you are concerned about manipulation the creator explained in detail with a sincere understanding of toxic manipulation. It literally sounded verbatim with what I was experiencing.

It really wasn't you. Clearing a foggy mind.

Outstanding book. Gave in depth insight of recognizing manipulation. Only wish I would have read before the years of thinking I was just "crazy" , and questioning my own reality. Highly recommend for everyone

This is a great audio and overview of manipulation tactics individuals with personality disorders use. I would definitely start here before venturing out into deeper details on these specific tactics.

Great book for everyone

This is a great book to learn how people can push your buttons and/or sabotage you. Once you see manipulation clearly, you will begin to weed out those who use these tactics in favor of interacting with emotionally healthier people.
