Happy that i bought this book

I disagree with the author that these unethical methods will give anyone who listens this book the power to manipulate and control people. Virtually everything he explains would require years of learning and practice. There is so much material covered in the book that it becomes impractical for an individual to accomplish selfish and unethical use of psychology.

Actually this book is very helpful!!

Actually this book is very helpful when gaining some good, helpful knowledge about the evil and harm that lurks in our world. It doesn't really over dramatize, but names it, gives advice, best practices, etc. I found it helpful. We have all run into the extreme narcissist or the social psychopath. And hopefully not too often the far end of that spectrum! I do recommend the book. Pretty right on target advice.

I really like the idea of author!!

I really like the idea that all of our feelings have value and there is a reason we are having them. It is actually healthy to experience feelings that we would classify as "negative" and by eliminating them, we miss important aspects of ourselves or life in general.

Just what i needed

I really enjoyed this book. The issue is you do not learn how to do any techniques such as conversational hypnosis or NLP. Instead he describes everything to the core. If you want to learn how to do things in that nature this book isn’t that. He explains that everyone has free will. He does make you think a lot about yourself and how you can improve.
