Publisher's Summary

There must have been one moment or more in your life when you had to agree to someone's point of view or someone's wish and later asked yourself how on earth did i get to agree to that? 

Can you remember that day you were being manipulated to see situations from a perspective contrary to yours? Have you, at least for once, felt like someone was trying to trick your thinking into believing him/her? Have you ever been caught up in someone's constant and frequent gaze?

Well, enough with the questions. The message is, if:

  • Being manipulated scares you
  • You ever made a choice contrary to your satisfaction without being forced
  • You rarely make your sincere choice due to others' conviction
  • You always or mostly end up doing whatever that person suggests

Then, I can confirm that you have been subjected to a psychological manipulation several times. Hence, you need to find out about the art of manipulation, and yes, this is the right book for you. 

As a person who's easy to be manipulated or someone who always falls for the tricks of manipulation, imagine a situation whereby you already know what you want and can clearly differentiate between your choice and the opposite decision. But you're scared of meeting or facing some people because they can change your mind unwillingly, though not forcefully, to a scary situation, right? That's where you should know that the idea of being manipulated is a terror to everyone. Maybe, it is not known as manipulation, but the fact remains that manipulation is rampant, especially in the world we are today. 

The psychological tactic is being used in almost all fields and activities of life, ranging from politics to business organization, product advertisement, beliefs, and so on. Literally, the art of manipulation is everywhere today. This beautiful book aims to let you recognize manipulation tactics when you are under one and be able to either convert it to your favor or avoid it easily. 

In this audiobook, you'll learn:

  • A concise history of manipulation
  • How to identify manipulation in your romantic relationship
  • How to identify frequently used manipulation techniques
  • How to recognize and avoid manipulation at all cost
  •  How to defeat and turn manipulation around for good
  • How to identify potential manipulators and handle them

The list goes on...

Psychological manipulation is undoubtedly a "spychology" terminology that may be difficult for a layman to understand fully. But fear not! This book has watered it down to the extent that you won't have any difficulty picking the factual information. The terms used in this audiobook were explained for everyone's understanding, so, get rid of your fear of understanding it. 

Do you think you still have the time to waste? You can't afford to postpone the purchase, so buy the audiobook and set yourself on the path that leads to conquering manipulation!

A brilliant audiobook..

This is a brisk perused (and a short tune in on Audible). This is one uncommon occurrence where I'd prescribe the Audible form over the audiobook. Here's the reason. The whole audiobook is clearly about words that help you get what you need.

Boring

Save your money. I couldn’t be persuaded to listen past chapter 4. Horrible content read by a lifeless narrator. Not sure where all the good reviews came from, must have been manipulation.

A beautiful audiobook..

I absolutely would need to prescribe this to anybody intending to improve any bit of their life. Many thanks to the author for giving us such a beautiful audiobook . when it is used by people like narcissists who simply want their own way all the time, but it can be an extremely useful tool when it comes to negotiating and conducting business or other transactions

Extraordinary audiobook..

The material and framework it portrays are very broad, point by point and exact. I observed it is elegantly composed and intriguing. This is the audiobook has given me the certainty to begin my adventure in arriving at my objectives and persuading others that my choices matter. An incredible audiobook on control.

Helpful audiobook..

This is a quick listen (and a short listen on Audible). This is one rare instance where I’d recommend the Audible version over the book. Here’s why. The entire audiobook is obviously about words that help you get what you want. There are a lot of subtle inflections that could be missed by listening it.

brilliant

There are a ton of inconspicuous emphases that could be missed by understanding it—particularly in light of the fact that the creator is brilliant to give various instances of each expression or word and how to utilize it in changing circumstances.

This audio book is amazing

They adequately interface with the people they relate to. Consistently people believe that it's less difficult to communicate their inclinations and requirements with people they appear to be more amicable. If you bore them, they will criticize you, and scorn can make. Proposed this audio book!

More of an overview than anything else

I hoped for more from this book. Most of the reviews I read were centred on the Narrator's voice but I found that it was strangely hypnotic and calming. However, the content of the book felt more like an introduction to what manipulation is rather than focusing on the skills that could be used to do it.

If you're new to the idea of manipulation then this might be a good start but if you're looking for advanced techniques then this may not be the best option

dreadful robotic voice

I was unable to get past chapter 2, as the dreadful robotic voice meant that it was hard to hear the meaning of the words. The lack of natural pauses and intonation caused the meaning to be lost. Very disappointing

Very clear and concise explanations

Very clear and concise explanations and descriptions of manipulative maneuvering. However, the information was well worth the listen.
