Publisher's Summary

Interpreting people by understanding the verbal and non-verbal cues they give us can provide something beyond a superficial reading of their behavior. Adding psychology to a sociological analysis of human behavior provides a broader, deeper pool of information, especially when seen through the lens of communication. When we're able to interpret people where they stand, it's possible to exploit the information they freely offer and steer them toward our desired outcome.
While manipulation may have a bad name, it's not always a bad thing. Sometimes being able to manipulate people can lead to desirable outcomes for all involved. The trick is to know how to achieve this effect without those you're manipulating catching on.
In this book you will learn:



How the term manipulation can be deciphered
What leads people to manipulate others into doing things a certain way
How to manipulate in the real sense of the term using body language and communication
The role of verbal and non-verbal communication in manipulation
Improve communication skills to improve your manipulation skills
Neuro Linguistic Programming and its role in manipulation
NLP to master the art of manipulation
How to be tactical in order to secure a win
Common mistakes to avoid
The psychology of influence and manipulation
Applying social manipulation<

it turned into a social rehabilitation book

the book was mildly helpful and it slowly turned into a social Rehabilitation book I didn't appreciate this, when I'm reading or listening to a book about body language and psychological skills I don't like it to single me out and assume that I am antisocial. overall the book and gave me a very small amount of knowledge into body language a lot less than most of the body language books I've read and a lot less psychological skills then I thought it would possess.

Miss leading title.

Basic info on communication with others. Still, a few good nuggets. Just a very elementary read.

Good for starters, useless for confident people

If you're shy or struggle to read people or understand others, then that book is useful. This book might also be useful for students curious about improving your communication skills.

In the other hand, if you're already a confident communicator who can read people and persuade them, then skip this book completely. There is nothing new here and this book won't help you improving your game. The NLP bits are so shallow that you'll be better off learning online.
