Publisher's Summary

Do you feel like other people always get the best of you? Do you wish you were more assertive in dealing with others? Have you ever felt bullied or dismissed by others? Want to get some payback? Then you're ready to take psychological warfare seriously. You'll never have a mere conversation again after putting our tricks into practice.

This book teaches you personal interaction on a psychological level. It runs from trivial tricks like getting people to like and respect you more, to tactical life skills like making a convincing argument or persuading somebody to do you a large favor. In case you're up for some heavier artillery, it also teaches you how to play manipulative tricks on people by exploiting arcane quirks in the human mind, to psychological combat maneuvers practiced by law enforcement and the military.

Learn from psychology experts and military black-ops experiments alike, as we explore the maze of the human mind and discover some access panels that weren't meant to be discovered. If you don't want to use it offensively, you can also use it as a defense against the con artists and sociopaths who try to pull one over on you - perhaps you'll even see your relationship in a new way.

It's time you asserted yourself! Get in touch with your inner Jedi and learn a few mind tricks of your own. If you even use it to argue your way out of one traffic ticket, this book has paid for itself right there.

Handy, basic and perhaps a little interesting

A nice introduction but I think you need to do further study to make this subject helpful.

great overview

did not go into too much detail but gives the reader a broad view and enables the reader to research individual topics seriously. I enjoyed the read.

Wish it was longer!

Good topics and good examples. I'd like to see an expanded version, but still very much recommend this book.

Lacking in depth

It was very short and only covered basic techniques and not even well. Your money is better spent elsewhere.

Not enough techniques to learn enough

It's a fun listen, great story telling, but not one that really drills in the possible, useful techniques to the point that you are bound to remember them and actually find a great way of using them

Just the surface of the topic

This is a pretty short book that just touches the surface of this topic. It really doesn't do much more than list some of the tools. But most of what is listed is common knowledge to anyone who watches TV. You won't get much out of this book. I recommend that you look elsewhere for this knowledge.

Not good

Way too short. Too vague. No real psychological studies included to demonstrate that certain ideas are backed up by science.
