Publisher's Summary

Two books in one bundle about manipulation and narcissistic personality disorder.

Book 1: Manipulation: The Science and Art of Influence and Persuasion: Manipulating, blackmailing, forcing, acting, persuading, convincing, influencing...call it whatever you want. It can be used for good and bad purposes, with friendly or malicious intentions. What's most important, however, is that we understand it. Therefore, in this somewhat lengthy manual, you will learn, among others:

  • The good and bad reasoning behind manipulation and influencing
  • How someone gains charisma and how to interact with them
  • Techniques to influence others more yourself
  • Analyses that help you recognize and counteract non-beneficial ways others manipulate you
  • Various roles people play when trying to persuade another to do or say something
  • How neuro-linguistic programming and hypnosis can be involved in influencing others and controlling yourself

Book 2: Narcissist: 50 Things to Know About a Narcissistic Personality Disorder: You may know a narcissist, you may be one, or you may just be interested in what narcissism really is. Suffice it to say that there are a lot of narcissists in society, and that some of us might have a few traits on either side of the spectrum. Therefore, it is essential to our understanding of such individuals to be informed correctly and know what to expect when interacting with them. This book contains information like:

  • The differences between several specific narcissistic personality disorders
  • Tips on dealing with a narcissist and what not to say and do
  • Background, origin, nature, and nurture, and other explanations as to where the disorder comes from
  • Subtle signs of narcissistic personality disorder and how to recognize them
  • Getting into the mindset of the boosted superego and the reasons behind it
  • Ways to confront narcissists and how to use therapy to your advantage
  • The reasoning, manipulation tactics, and motivation in a narcissist's mind

And much more!

Shallow discussion, potentially damaging advice

The performance is good, but the substance is superficial, and at times, alarming. It's a difficult balance to strike in discussing how to avoid bad manipulation and using manipulation for your own ends, and this book seems to flirt with advising the latter too strongly.

I enjoyed this book

I want to learn the power of manipulation. I think it is cool if you can manipulate someone. They said that it is impossible but I know it is possible for me. I browse books to know how to manipulate and I grabbed this book. There are practices in this book on how to manipulate but I think they are hard, I can say that I need to practice them if I want to achieve it. Some topics in this book that doesn’t have example I wish that the author put examples on them.

Nice and efficient!!!!

Any additional comments?

This book has opened my eyes on the great effect of manipulation.This is one of those books that basically summarizes a lot of social theories out there and adds a pessimistic twist to it.Anyone looking to learn more about sociology should check out this book.

It is definitely a good reference for anyone interested in using effective body language and communication tips with simplicity whenever needed.

Any additional comments?

It is important to distinguish healthy social influence from psychological manipulation. Healthy social influence occurs between most people, and is part of the give and take of constructive relationships. Of course, our society is full of people who do not respect the fundamental human rights. But you have the power and moral authority to declare that it is you, not the manipulator, who’s in charge of your life.

Basic understanding on Manipulation!!!

It is hard to tell if someone is manipulating you. This book has given me basic understanding on how to know it and how to defend when someone is trying to persuade or influence me. The tips on how to assess manipulation are spot on. Especially when you are in a relationship, it is important to know if that person is manipulating you or not. I recommend this book.

Amazing book.

This audio book says amazing things, with the proper knowledge we are able to bring people to our will, at first I thought that the book was some supernatural method or something, but it has nothing to do with it. It is a simple psychological thing, this is not new, thousands of people in our world use it daily, politicians, religious leaders, famous people,they are able to control individuals and the masses. The book is well narrated, it is easy to understand.

This is excellent!

Excellent audio book if you are a psychology fan like me. I've always loved the sensation of being some kind of Sherlock Holmes ( I'm a Sherlock's fan, I have some books of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and I have seen the movies). This book helped me to have a profound knowledge of human mind, how it works, how to control it and manipulate it. I have to admit that I was a little bit skeptical about this book but it came up really good
