 About the Book 

Unlike people who are trying to influence, persuade or convince others, manipulators work with unfair means to get what they want. They do not respect the personal rights of their victims. They violate the victims integrity, work with hidden agendasMoreUnlike people who are trying to influence, persuade or convince others, manipulators work with unfair means to get what they want. They do not respect the personal rights of their victims. They violate the victims integrity, work with hidden agendas and deliberately use dishonest tricks like faulty reasoning, coercion, blackmail and lying in an attempt to control the victims actions. Manipulation is about suiting the manipulators advantage or purpose only, often at the expense of the victim.Yet, it is often difficult to know when you are being manipulated: manipulators do all they can to convince you that you are the one who is to benefit most from their actions and that they are acting in good faith.If we were aware that we are being manipulated, would we allow ourselves to fall victim to it - and how would we defend ourselves against it?That is where this book comes in handy: it explains the tricks manipulators use and teaches you how to best defend and protect yourself.
