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.

This has changed me.
This book has changed me. I didn't know I was being manipulated until I read this and FINALLY woke up. Man this book has forever changed me. Everyone should try to find out and see if their being manipulated then listen this if they are. This book will make you understand why you have a crazy relationship and it will make you realize that you are not crazy and it is not all your fault that's why you have a messed up relationship, and that you were just being controlled. I hope this book will empower anyone who needs help

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
