Dr. George K. Simon knows how people push your buttons: your children-especially teens-are experts at it, as is your mate. A coworker may quietly undermine your efforts while professing to be helpful, or your boss may prey on your weaknesses. Manipulative people have two goals: to win and to look good doing it. Too often, those they abuse are only vaguely aware of what is happening to them.
In this eye-opening book, you'll discover:
-four reasons why victims have a hard time leaving abusive relationships
-power tactics manipulative people use to push their own agendas and justify their behavior
-ways to redefine the rules of engagement between you and the abuser
-how to spot potential weaknesses in your character that can set you up for manipulation
-two tools for personal empowerment to help you maintain greater strength in all relationships

"Long sentences and language steeped in clinical psychology don't prevent this book from delivering many astute insights on covert aggression and manipulation. Kevin Foley's rich tone and phrasing acumen combine to create an almost flawless reading. Though compound sentences are the norm, his phrasing missteps are rare. But the formal, old-fashioned sound of his performance lacks the freshness this kind of writing desperately needs. Despite this production oversight, the audio provides useful distinctions regarding manipulative personality disorders and a thoughtful analysis of why we don't want to feel negative toward or have open conflicts with people who have them. In an increasingly permissive and self-serving age, this is crucial advice on how we can recognize highly skilled manipulation and level the playing field with effective strategies. T.W.
