Publisher's Summary

Imagine how different your life would be if you could spot the manipulation tactics people use against you and know the influence and persuasion techniques to defend against it.
Almost every person will suffer some form of manipulative behavior at some stage in their life, it's unavoidable. Whether it's an overt form of intimidation and bullying in the workplace or more subtle covert manipulation within a relationship. It's much more prevalent than you think. But most people aren't equipped with the right observation strategies to pick-up on it, or the right mental make-up to deal with it.
Katherine Chambers is an ex Stanford Psychologist who specializes in all forms of neuroscientific and psychotherapy subjects. However, it wasn't until she left college life and entered the "real world" that she started to understand these theoretical topics in a practical sense. Over the past 15 years she has built a multi-six-figure consulting business and a family of her own. But it wasn't all plain sailing; she has gone through more than her fair share of manipulative relationships along the way.
In this insightful and functional book, Chambers gives listeners a firsthand look into the scientific subjects she studied within academia as well as a practical real life guide on how to:

Spot covert manipulation occurring
Understand why people do what they do
Identify the warning signs that you are being manipulated
Develop practical persuasion and influence techniques to defend against it
Master the mechanics of verbal and non-verbal communication
Deal with manipulation in any relationship
Raise your overall confidence and self-esteem to immunize yourself going forward

The greatness of manipulation.

This book will help you recognize people who are trying to manipulate you as well as teach you how to deal with them. It has really helped me see just how much I have been being used and the info in this guide has given me the confidence and tools I need to finally stand up for myself. It is a good feeling. Tone of voice is one of the factors to consider. This book is highly recommended to others. This is fun.

Good first download

I couldn't put my headphones down even if I was cleaning. It was easy to understand and information packed. Manipulators are everywhere and we have the power to say no.

not what I thought

I thought this would be a guide on understanding people and how they think but it seems the book is targeted only towards people in a manipulative relationship and how to remove themselves from that situation. perhaps that changes later in the book but from the first two hours I returned the book
