Awesome guide.

Primarily, the take away from this book is that it will change the way we consider things. Its jam packed of influence systems that are being utilized on us consistently. I'll say this is one of many books that helped me comprehend what is coming my direction. In conclusion, this book is a reasonable explanation of psychological principle of manipulation and I'm appreciating it.If you are into psychology research, it's an unquestionably must have.

This is very good.

I wasn’t aware that there’s a constructive side on manipulating people. I always accepted it is an awful way and behavior. This book was a bearer of uplifting news for me. I got to perceive that manipulation is a type of social impact which aims to alter the behavior or view of others in our favor. It is a decent, convenient and handy read for people that organize seminars, workshops on leadership training to businesses and marketing, sales and government agencies.

Boggling information clearly presented

I can't remember under what influence I acquired this book! It is worth reading for the delight of understanding many annoying repetitive aspects of our society, and for the warnings about tricksters who manipulate our behaviors in a variety of settings. This book is an eye opener. The writer gives suggestions for resisting the effects of the many influence virtuosos who are after our compliance with their wishes for reasons not always in our own best interests.

excellent boook

It delivers what it promises. The information portrayed in the audible is correct and valuable. The main flaw I would point out is that the information is somewhat sparse. I think that it would be more useful to list at least 2 or 3 scenarios for each fallacy. Additionally, it would be valuable to give some real world examples of how the fallacies are currently being used in political arguments and today's current events.

Very Helpful Book on the Topic

Manipulating other’s thought process is not a cake walk. We will have to have a great strategy and effective communication skills to achieve it. This book is all about the technique on manipulation and the mistakes that we normally make while following the strategy. It goes beyond manipulation and makes us realize that with the techniques mentioned in the book we could get our works done very efficiently.
