Publisher's Summary

Dr. George K. Simon knows how people push your buttons: your children---especially teens---are experts at it, as is your mate. A coworker may quietly undermine your efforts while professing to be helpful, or your boss may prey on your weaknesses. Manipulative people have two goals: to win and to look good doing it. Too often, those they abuse are only vaguely aware of what is happening to them. In this eye-opening book, you'll discover:


four reasons why victims have a hard time leaving abusive relationships
power tactics manipulative people use to push their own agendas and justify their behavior
ways to redefine the rules of engagement between you and the abuser
how to spot potential weaknesses in your character that can set you up for manipulation
two tools for personal empowerment to help you maintain greater strength in all relationships

A safety-belt for going through life

First of all, go read all the gorgeous reviews on amazon for the printed version. It's a very popular book. In short, it goes into describing toxic people, their strategies for manipulating others and the weaknesses they exploit. And it offers strategies for dealing with them.

The reason I think this book is a must read is because we come across these toxic personalities more often than we think we do. They can really destroy your life in a very subtle way, so that you would barely feel this. The book offers an essential knowledge that any good person needs in order to survive.

Excellent to Help u identify dangerous people.

He doesn't explain alot about the effect of chonic emotional neglect, attachment trauma etc. Book Helps you develop filters against toxic people and their common ploys. Must read if you are dating and trying to determine what a person is capable of.
