What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If the reader didn't whistle with every word that had an "s" in it, that would have helped the audio experience. Even if this had been a good book I would have returned it because I couldn't listen to it without cringing.
Has Covert Emotional Manipulation Exposed! turned you off from other books in this genre?
Would you be willing to try another one of Jim D. Johnston’s performances?
No. No no no no no!!!!!!!!!
What character would you cut from Covert Emotional Manipulation Exposed!?
This doesn't even apply.
Any additional comments?
Jim D. Johnston just needs to stop reading to people.

The book was painfully difficult to listen to, but I stuck it out because the actual writing and message was really good. Every couple minutes I was like, "holy cow, that's me." The actual writing is the only reason I continued beyond the first few minutes.
The narrator was terrible. He had this really annoying whistle when he pronounced words with the letter "s" in them. Also, his repeated mispronunciation was very irritating. If someone is going to narrate a book, especially if people are going to pay to listen to it, the narrator should probably have a better grasp on the English language.

Excellent book. Gives detailed descriptions of useable methods for the real world. Very clear and informative
I must admit I have missed a few minutes here and there but it wasn't nessacarily what I was looking for. It contains information very worthwhile and valuable for everyone who lives in the modern world. But if you are either a man in a manipulative relationship or a child of parents who are manipulating or its a family history of traumatic stress caused by a grandmother THEN ITS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU. I was extremely annoyed by the author's references toward the end of the book that totally negated men in abusive relationships, it simply wasn't acknowledged. Men have traditionally been in a better position to manipulate and very often did but women are very often much more accomplished and skilled and exceptional destructive. while I understand that the author wants to save lives of women who may be murdered he seems to forget that narsistic great grandmother's are still affecting the lives of children and adults generations later. BUT FOR WOMEN or the friends of family members IN ABUSIVE OR SO MANIPULATIVE RELATIONSHIPS OR IF YOU ARE NOT SURE PLEASE BUY THIS ! Also it's a good general guide for what to avoid and look out for at work and in FRIENDSHIPS.
