Description

Unlike people who are trying to influence others, manipulators work with unfair means to get what they want.

They do not respect the personal rights of their victims. They violate the victim's integrity, work with hidden agendas and deliberately use dishonest tricks like faulty reasoning, coercion, blackmail and lying in an attempt to control the victim's actions. Manipulation is about suiting the manipulator's advantage or purpose only, often at the expense of the victim.

Yet, it is often difficult to know when you are being manipulated: manipulators do all they can to convince you that you are the one who is to benefit most from their actions and that they are acting in good faith.

It's often really difficult to recognize manipulation when it happens. After all, if we are aware that it is happening, would we allow ourselves to be manipulated?

That is where this book comes in handy: it explains the tricks manipulators use and teaches you how to best defend and protect yourself.
