Publisher's Summary

Do you feel like you have to walk on eggshells around your partner? Or that the wrong phrase might set them off? Are you unhappy in your relationship, but can't bear to pull yourself away from it? Do you feel inadequate and sometimes deserving of the treatment you get? Recognize that your partner is your manipulator and abuser - don't allow them to force the upper hand. Mind Games uncovers a host of underhanded, sneaky, and malicious emotional manipulation tactics that manipulators and abusers use to beat you down and control you. We might all be able to recognize blatant abuse, but when we're emotionally invested, it's tough to see the little signs that are in front of our faces sometimes. They'll lead to you feeling worthless and vulnerable, making it almost impossible to leave your situation.

In this book, I identify many common tactics that you may be intimately and sadly familiar with, complete with real life examples for each to help you identify them in your daily life. What emotionally manipulative tactics will you learn to identify and stop? *

  • Gaslighting and telling you that your concern is an overreaction, or quite simply wrong
  • How the silent treatment is used as punishment and forces compliance
  • Playing the victim and how it transforms your issues into guilt and pity
  • Your abuser's time machine and how they use it to their advantage

More importantly:

  • An analysis of the psychology behind why your partner acts the way they do...and why you stay
  • Guidelines for how to deal with a partner that is your manipulator and abuser
  • Why your abuser loves controlling you, not necessarily you

Emotional manipulation tactics are still abuse, even if there are no physical signs. Gain the knowledge and subsequent courage you need to leave your situation and find true happiness, not someone else's definition of it. Learn to detect when your abuser is not acting in your best interest, and exactly how they make you believe that they are.

This is a good read

What made the experience of listening to Mind Games the most enjoyable?

I could relate to everything in this book. I have been married to a verbal abuser for years and this book just reconfirmed everything for me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.

Narcissist says women are perfect and men are evil

Lots of good examples of passive aggressive behavior from women, but attributed to men while author, in true narcissist fashion, acts like these behaviors aren't mostly coming from other women.

The person reading the audio book sounds like an impulsive/immature/childish/histrionic person themselves, which fits with the tone of the book, but also makes it difficult for somebody who's not a bratty teenage girl to listen to.

It touches on the reality of life & Manipulation.

A real eye opener and a must to read. Manipulation at it fullest. Who can we trust with our hearts and souls? Obviously in my case, not Ms. Perez, a real manipulator and con artist. Every dog has their day and hers is coming.

Would have been a great topic in Middle School<br />

I really liked her examples and I was able to relate a past relationship to this and finally make sense out of what I knew made no sense. I knew one thing for certain. It hurts so deeply that the cruelty of being treated this way should be a punishable crime. To prey on people with low self esteem only to make it worse makes them a monster! my sister who is also afflicted with a mental disability is now a severe alcoholic who refuses to believe it is him being such a monster and a good friend recently committed suicide over her obsessing over a man because of her personality disorder BPD to commit suicide. Thank you for educating all!!!
