Publisher's Summary

In a world where your personal and professional relationships are crucially important for your success, it's imperative for you to understand how the dark psychology and manipulative tactics work.

If you are not aware of the basics of manipulation and how people use it on you to get their way, then there’s a high chance that you’ll find yourself in a vulnerable situation later on.

We all have the dark side which we consciously and subconsciously use every day to get what we want from others. Many times, we are on the receiving end of it, and we get manipulated, ourselves.

This audiobook has been carefully designed not only so you can save yourself from manipulative methods but to use them in a positive way to build strong relationships and persuade others. You will learn about the psychology of manipulation and how it resides in every one of us. You'll also learn to identify the art of manipulation and acquire awareness regarding a variety of ways in which dark psychology is used in everyday life to manipulate us. 

Once you have developed a strong conceptual base, the book teaches you how to use the information in a positive and empathetic way to drive negotiations in your favor and become successful, both in personal and professional life.

With the help of this audiobook, you will:

  • Develop an understanding of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), dark psychology, manipulative behaviors, and personality traits
  • Learn the principles of NLP in detail and how they’re used
  • Learn about the verbal and nonverbal behaviors and cues commonly used by manipulators
  • Use the knowledge of dark psychology, NLP, and manipulative behavior to your advantage in a positive way
  • Learn the difference between persuasion and manipulation

FAQs

I’m not good at reading people. Can this book help me with that?

You are exactly that target audience of this book. An overwhelming majority of people start trusting others too early, and it becomes difficult for them to identify who’s manipulating them, leading to emotional and material damage later on.

Isn’t it ethically wrong to learn manipulation?

Depends on why you are learning it.

This book’s purpose, however, is to teach you to keep yourself safe from manipulation and use the knowledge for positive and empathetic persuasion instead of manipulation.

How do I know I won’t waste my money buying this book? 

Everything in the book is an extract of decades of experiences, scientific knowledge, and anecdotal evidence.

For scorned women

background on me. I have listened to only a handful of audiobooks (David Goggins, Jocko, Kevin Hart and Jordan Peterson) and this is my first review.
The secrets if manipulation is, in my opinion, a waste of time if you are a normal or above person.
The guy talking is good. His voice captures your attention and is not just a monotone sound that puts you to sleep.
The content is...pretty much common sense. Chapter one was a struggle but I persevered and made it to chapter two- which was unfortunately more of the same. The audiobook content sounds like it’s a ‘you go girl’ motivation book and gives you a reason to leave your abusive husband/partner/boyfriend. It pretty much tells you if someone is doing [insert behaviour you don’t like] then they are PROBABLY a manipulative partner. don’t waste your monthly token on this one if you have half a brain.

The information about the sinister uses of manipulation so I could protect myself. This audio book, however, seemed to focus the positive applications of manipulation.

This audio "book" was more of a pamphlet and filled, with seem to be cut and paste inserts from a google search on the topics. You will learn less from this audio "book".

It is easy to understand and a great guide overall

Manipulation is the conscious act of forcing somebody to do something, or to behave in some way. Manipulation is smart, skillful and unscrupulous at times. Tampering isn't always a bad thing.

Clickbait title

"Become a Master in ..." is literaly in the title, but the author marely touches on the listed concepts. In a way the book cover itself is a form of manipulation by his own definition. Most concepts are simply explained in a definition level with some examples.
Joe talks about how to spot manipulation and what you can do to get out of a bad relationship. Overall, I see this book being useful to someone who suspects they are being taken advantage of.
