Publisher's Summary

Going beyond his world-famous book Your Erroneous Zones, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer reveals his dynamic techniques for dealing with other people and living your life as you choose. Pulling Your Own Strings is Dr. Dyer's direct and practical audio adaptation of his classic best seller.

You are also responsible for how much you will be controlled by others. Now, Dr. Wayne Dyer provides his practical, step-by-step plan for developing new attitudes toward the most common sources of victimization and manipulation, including family, work, and, ultimately, yourself. Life, Dr. Dyer says, is a beautiful thing as long as you hold the strings. Pulling Your Own Strings will give you the strategies and tools to master your own fate.

Dr. Wayne W. Dyer is one of the most widely read authors today in the field of self-development. His phenomenally successful book Your Erroneous Zones has sold over six million copies. He has a doctorate in counseling psychology from Wayne State University and the University of Michigan and maintains a full schedule of teaching, lectures, and appearances on national television and radio.

Great book

Great teaching on what manipulation is, how you have allowed this behaviour in your life and how to focus on changing your own response to this and inevitably taking that control back.

Cutting through the nonsense

There are some superb and thought provoking quotes and texts within.

I would have like to have heard more on responding in a fashion that can not be used against oneself - for example if people are making judgements on ones manners, not asking for permission can or has been used against me .

Not the book

Disappointed that this was a lecture, and not the reading of the book. I was looking for the book reading.

It is not the book!

This was very disappointing. This is not the book. It is Wayne talking and recapping the book.

Where's the rest of the book?

The book is excellent. The audible content is great. It just ends abruptly. Get the book. does a full version exist? This felt like a waste of money.

Only 2 chapters in audible

I gave this book 5 stars because I think it’s going to be really good. However, the audible version is more like an overview. It’s two chapters long, less than two hours in length. The actual book has at least 10 chapters so I was disappointed.

Exactly what I needed

Any additional comments?

Really made me realize how much I have had a victim behavior all my life up to now. We really have the power to change and make things better for ourselves. I recommend it to anyone who is interested in taking back the power in their lives to become more in control and be centered on themselves instead of what other people think. It really changed the way I see myself and the power I have to make my life what I want it to be :)

Absolute Truth!! Amazing and eyeopening!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, every single friend I have has received a copy of this book at one point or another. It is absolutely life changing!

What other book might you compare Pulling Your Own Strings to and why?

"What You Think of Me is None of My Business" is another great "freedom giving" book in this light.

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

Yes!

Any additional comments?

This book will transform your view and outlook on life and bring you a completely different and renewing filter for decision making.

Disappointed in Audible - Only Got 2 Chapters

Only 2 chapters appeared when I purchased this book. I have a hard copy, and it has many more chapters. I really wanted to listen to it. Disappointed in Audible. What I listened to was excellent. Guess I'll read my hard copy.

Being a victim is up to you!

it's a choice and a mindset. This is a wonderful book that simply puts victimhood into context and gives you the authority to change it.
