Publisher's Summary

Emotional manipulation is a powerful and potentially deadly fact of life. It is not easy to recognize manipulation taking place. Some people are highly skilled at manipulating the emotions of other people in order to serve their own needs and desires. When this manipulation is carried out in a secretive and subtle way it can be referred to as "covert".

When you hear the word covert it might make you think of secretive, special operations. In the case of emotional manipulation, this is actually accurate. Covert emotional manipulators are carrying out a secret mission to rob you of your self-esteem, willpower, and ability to make decisions that are in your own best interest. Worst of all, you may not even know this is happening. The most skilled emotional manipulators will not only be able to hide their attempts to impact and influence you, but will also be able to make you feel as if you are the person who is behaving badly!

In his book entitled Covert Emotional Manipulation Exposed! author John Mentory shows you everything you need to know to recognize, neutralize, and fight back against covert emotional manipulation. You will understand the specific weapons and tactics that are used by manipulators to achieve their own selfish ends. You will be given a complete toolkit in order to regain control over your own life and stop anyone from having unfair power over you ever again.

You have a simple choice. You can ignore this book and the valuable information it contains and go through life at risk of being used by others for their own selfish ends, or you can listen on, apply the information, and live a happy life that is within your own control.

Same as every other self-help book out there

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If the reader didn't whistle with every word that had an "s" in it, that would have helped the audio experience. Even if this had been a good book I would have returned it because I couldn't listen to it without cringing.

Has Covert Emotional Manipulation Exposed! turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jim D. Johnston’s performances?

No. No no no no no!!!!!!!!!

What character would you cut from Covert Emotional Manipulation Exposed!?

This doesn't even apply.

Any additional comments?

Jim D. Johnston just needs to stop reading to people.

Great book; terrible narration

The book was painfully difficult to listen to, but I stuck it out because the actual writing and message was really good. Every couple minutes I was like, "holy cow, that's me." The actual writing is the only reason I continued beyond the first few minutes.
The narrator was terrible. He had this really annoying whistle when he pronounced words with the letter "s" in them. Also, his repeated mispronunciation was very irritating. If someone is going to narrate a book, especially if people are going to pay to listen to it, the narrator should probably have a better grasp on the English language.

Very Helpful Book on the Topic.

There needs to be more books on prevention. This book however was only helpful to me after rhe fact. Most people have no idea when they are being emotionally abused.

A broad overview and worth reading but...

I must admit I have missed a few minutes here and there but it wasn't nessacarily what I was looking for. It contains information very worthwhile and valuable for everyone who lives in the modern world. But if you are either a man in a manipulative relationship or a child of parents who are manipulating or its a family history of traumatic stress caused by a grandmother THEN ITS NOT THE BOOK FOR YOU. I was extremely annoyed by the author's references toward the end of the book that totally negated men in abusive relationships, it simply wasn't acknowledged. Men have traditionally been in a better position to manipulate and very often did but women are very often much more accomplished and skilled and exceptional destructive. while I understand that the author wants to save lives of women who may be murdered he seems to forget that narsistic great grandmother's are still affecting the lives of children and adults generations later. BUT FOR WOMEN or the friends of family members IN ABUSIVE OR SO MANIPULATIVE RELATIONSHIPS OR IF YOU ARE NOT SURE PLEASE BUY THIS ! Also it's a good general guide for what to avoid and look out for at work and in FRIENDSHIPS.
