Publisher's Summary

As members of society we all have experienced mind control or used mind-control techniques in one form or another. Whether it's under the guise of manipulation, persuasion, deception, or hypnosis we all have encountered or utilized it. Advertisers and marketers use these aforementioned mind-control techniques to get us to feel a certain way about their products and services with the intentions of getting us to purchase them. Politicians use them to get us to support and vote for them. Our friends, family, or significant others also use mind-control techniques in particular manipulation, and persuasion to get us to do what they want. Whether you admit to it or not, it is likely that you have also used mind control techniques in an effort to achieve a specific outcome.

Mind control is not inherently bad or good, but it is how you use it, the intentions behind it and the results that it produces. If you use mind with bad intentions it can be viewed as being evil. In addition, if the outcome that it produces is adversely negative it also to can be viewed as evil. On the other hand, if you use mind control with good intention and it produces positive results for those involved then it was used for good purposes.

In his book entitled Mind Control Techniques author Ken Talley explores in depth the various types of mind-control techniques such as manipulation, deception, hypnosis, persuasion, and the secrets to using them to improve your everyday life.

Deceptive!

The irony here is that the title and cover if this book are deceptively advertising something the book does not deliver and yet what it really is, is as a repetitive lecture on the unethical nature of what the cover advertises the book is. It lists hypnosis as one of they areas covered by the book, but merely states that it is for professionals, so stay away. That hardly qualifies as a cover highlighted topic.
The author fills this already small book with multiple useless examples of obvious ideas like, if you lie you have to keep track of it. Then he repeats that five different ways as if the readers are idiots.
Luckily, I got it for free, but I will never get my time back.
Spoiler alert, this is a book on persuasion not mind control. And a poor one at that.

Got to chapter 8 waiting for it to get started...

What disappointed you about Mind Control Techniques?

Basically the point of this book is that deception is just a tool. I spent the whole book to get started and it never did. The examples and attitude seemed to be how to convince high school kids that persuasion techniques are just tools, like a machine gun is. Neither is inherently evil, only the person using it.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Some of the Great Courses, and Lean Customer.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Needed to speed it up more then usual. But most of that is that the writing is pedantic rather then the narration.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It was shorter then some, but way longer then needed.

Any additional comments?

I am asking for a refund on this one.

Waste

Didn't enjoy tuis book at all. its to hung up on the morals of using the techniques actually explaining methods in how to use them. There wasnt enough detail and most of the content was just common sense.
