Publisher's Summary

Outwit the manipulators in your life.

Stop getting taken advantage of by the manipulators and pathological liars in your life. Arm yourself today with this step-by-step guide for dealing with manipulators!

Manipulators and pathological liars are more common than you think. They live amongst us, these masters of deceit with no regard for other people. With every flattering compliment they leave you, there is an ulterior motive, and once they discover what's most important to you, they will exploit you to no end. They'll take advantage of you, and, if you allow them to get to close or intimate with you, they might just take you for every cent you have. Unfortunately, there is no avoiding these sharks, but there is a way to spot them quickly, and deal with them effectively when you absolutely need to.

I wrote this book with the intention to provide that way for anyone facing a manipulator at work, in a relationship, or in any other area of life. In this book, I'll teach you some of the manipulator and pathological liar's most frequently used methods of manipulation. Some of them are so subtle that once you discover that a manipulator in your life has been guiding the situation the entire time, it might shock you. I'll also show you the most common manipulator personality types so you can spot them right off the bat and begin planning immediately how to deal with them. Lastly, I'll show you how some of the mental and physical effects that manipulators can have on you and what to do about it.

Dealing with a manipulators and pathological liars in life can be scary, but it doesn't have to be when you're well prepared in advance for the situations that you might run into. I'll guide you through every step of the way.

Here is a sneak peek of what I'll teach you:

  • The six ways you are vulnerable to manipulators
  • The 10 types of manipulators

    "Didn't deliver"

    Short, basic and didn't really deliver on what it promises. Didn't care for the narrator.

    "AAAAAACK@!"

    The. MOST ANNOYING narrator I have EVER heard. I didn't last even 5 minutes. The poor guy needs a large dose of Xanax before trying to narrate. I have heard kids in a school play reading from que-cards that annunciated with less gusto.

    Story
    "manipulation"

    Although it felt like I was being read to by a game-show host, I found some useful information here.

    This book includes strategies to free yourself from master manipulators and regain your sense of self.

    We probably all have a dysfunctional relationship with "that one person" who seems to waste all of our time, energy, and resource if we allow them to. It could be a friend, a lover, or even a family member subjecting you to emotional abuse and affecting your quality of life.

    You may be vulnerable to manipulation if you feel the constant need to please other people at your own expense, avoid conflict at all costs, can't ever say "no," and are afraid to express any negative emotions for fear of rejection or abandonment. Master manipulators can easily spot these weaknesses and exploit them, leaving you feeling exhausted and helpless.


    There are several types of manipulators described, but the bottom line is that you cannot change their behavior, only your own. You must decide whether to remove yourself from the situation OR work on creating a new relationship dynamic. Create your battle plan and take back your power.

    "The Book was Not long enough.."
    Any additional comments?



    Stop being afraid of confrontation, set boundaries, and stop being manipulated!

    This was a short, quick read that did not beat around the bush, it covered identifying manipulators and pathological liars at work
    as well as among Friends / Family Members.

    My only complaint was that the book was Not longer...

    Harry Roger Williams, III had a clear steady reading voice and he did well with the narration.
