There are many ways to handle manipulation by individuals, a group, or government. Firstly, we need to recognise and understand a manipulative act, how it works, its motives, and why we, in particular, are its victims. To this end, the author seeks to illuminate "Human Manipulation" at all levels. This analysis provides the reader with a detailed definition, an understanding of the history and morality of human manipulation and an insight into the psychology of the manipulator and victim. The book identifies and examines 450 manipulative techniques in detail and explains what a victim can do to recognise, avoid and counteract them. Manipulation generally relies on human ignorance. So the better informed we are, the better our chances of detecting and managing manipulation when it is directed at us. This handbook is probably the most comprehensive study of human manipulation anywhere. It is a "must have" for any serious student of the subject.

    A friend gave me the paperback version of the book for my birthday last month. It's quite a hefty work and I wasn't sure if I would get through it. But once I got started I couldn't put it down. Human Manipulation is a book that attempts to document all of the types of human and political manipulation in use in contemporary society. After a lengthy analysis regarding the history of political manipulation, the remainder of the book deals with roughly 300 different manipulative techniques and the cognitive aberrations that make them possible including various forms of cognitive dissonance. The book has a clear writing style and deals with these very complex but important subjects in a very objective, unemotional way. The examples used are generally modern and relevant to a present day reader. The author is careful not to express personal opinions on the morality of the subject matter. It is a very well researched book and it is very complete (hundreds of techniques are defined) and has... More > it has a lot of explanatory notes. The book has proved very useful in understanding this aspect of human behavior. This isn't however a book for the casual reader - this is very much a textbook for the specialist or those interested in serious psychology or politics. Beware it's also a very large book.< Less
