Emotional manipulation is a powerful and potentially deadly fact of life. It is not easy to recognize manipulation taking place. Some people are highly skilled at manipulating the emotions of other people in order to serve their own needs and desires. When this manipulation is carried out in a secretive and subtle way it can be referred to as "covert".
When you hear the word covert it might make you think of secretive, special operations. In the case of emotional manipulation, this is actually accurate. Covert emotional manipulators are carrying out a secret mission to rob you of your self-esteem, willpower, and ability to make decisions that are in your own best interest. Worst of all, you may not even know this is happening. The most skilled emotional manipulators will not only be able to hide their attempts to impact and influence you, but will also be able to make you feel as if you are the person who is behaving badly!
In his book entitled Covert Emotional Manipulation Exposed! author John Mentory shows you everything you need to know to recognize, neutralize, and fight back against covert emotional manipulation. You will understand the specific weapons and tactics that are used by manipulators to achieve their own selfish ends. You will be given a complete toolkit in order to regain control over your own life and stop anyone from having unfair power over you ever again.
You have a simple choice. You can ignore this book and the valuable information it contains and go through life at risk of being used by others for their own selfish ends, or you can listen on, apply the information, and live a happy life that is within your own control.

Brilliant book. Manipulators only have as much power as we give them. Know how to protect yourself and stop manipulators breaking spirits and damaging lives.
"Same as every other self-help book out there"
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.
No. No no no no no!!!!!!!!!
This doesn't even apply.
Jim D. Johnston just needs to stop reading to people.
"Great book; terrible narration"
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.
"Good content but change the narrator"
Narrator has bad whistling lisp.
content was good
ears were not happy (lispy narrator problem)
his voice had a good time but bad whistle lisp
Save your time and money. This book isn't telling you anything you don't already know. Common sense written down...
