Publisher's Summary

Do you want to know the techniques of Dark Psychology? Do you think someone is using manipulation methods to manage your actions? Do you feel that your life is getting out of control?

If you want to understand the effects of mental manipulation, to recognize and contrast them instantly, then keep reading.

Dark psychology can be seen as the study of the human condition, in relation to the psychological nature of the different kinds of people who prey on others. The fact is that every single human being has the potential to victimize other people or other living creatures. However, due to social norms, the human conscience, and other factors, most humans tend to restrain their dark urges and to keep themselves from acting on every impulse that they have. However, there is a small percentage of the population that is unable to keep their dark instincts in check, and they harm others in seemingly unimaginable ways. 

What kinds of traits malicious and exploitative people have? What are the psychological drives that lead the people to act in ways that are against social norms and are harmful to others?

With Manipulation and Dark Psychology, you will learn how to tell if the people in your life harbor ill intentions against you. Or if new love interests who seem charming at the beginning are likely to turn into selfish and manipulative people once you have let them into your life.

Horrible narration

I really couldn’t stand the narrator, he’d put emphasis on every word with long pauses in between for no apparent reason. The information itself wasn’t really anything new, but very hard to focus on due to the terrible narration, I’m sure there’s better books on the topic.

Needs to be a high school textbook.

I wish I had have had some training in this when I was growing up, I then may have been a different person today.

Amazing Book

Manipulation is the conscious act of causing someone to do a certain thing or act in a certain way. Manipulation is clever, skillful, and sometimes unscrupulous. Manipulation is not always a bad thing. The clay bowl created in an art class was made from clay that was manipulated by someone’s hands. The doctor put the broken bone back into place by using manipulation.

Well written.

Easy and quick to read. 'Beginner' level presentation of a new concept. Repetitiveness is likely intentional to help learn a new way of thinking. This is a very informative book to read that provides everything we need to know about this book and I found this book very well explained.

Illiterate Narrator

I'm going to take a stab and say the narrator is illiterate. The way he reads 2 or 3 words and then takes a break coupled with the way he pronounces a few of the more intellectual words certainly indicates illiteracy. Either that or he learned to read from William Shatner. I have it on 1.55x speed and it's still agony to listen.

Couldn’t get past 1st Chapter

I’m really disappointed as this looked like such a good book! The narrator is awful he pauses for over a second between each word & reads like words are alien to him! Add to that a dull monotone drone & I got 40secs into the book before deleting it from my device Sorry Jonathan Mind, I’m sure your book was wonderful but I just couldn’t

Audio book slowed down

the content of this book is pretty good but do not pay full price for the audio book. the narrator purposefully talks slow and there are random 30 second breaks in the content. I assume this is to lengthen the audio book so they can charge more for the book.
