One of the best books I have ever read, March 3, 2008 by
I would recommend this book to anyone. It has redefined how I judge people and helped me to become a stronger person. I used to be very naive and unaware of people's ulterior motives, and I have learned a tremendous amount from reading this book.
I must have read this book 3 times now. It is such a relief to know that I am not crazy but these people are! One of my parents is deeply manipulative - the book would describe her as 'covert aggressive' and I have been attracting similar people into my life ever since. Now, thanks to this book, I know exactly how to respond to their games. What a relief! No more benefit of the doubt for these people and when I meet new people who have even a hint of these behaviours I know how to behave to let them know their tricks will not work on me.
It was a clearly signposted way out of my own personal hell. Thank you so much!

I've not read a more eye opening book. It hits the problem nail right on the head. If you suspect someone is manipulating you, please read this most valuable book. It will truly pull the wool off of your eyes.
Great book - practical knowledge, June 29, 2006 by
This is one of the best books I've ever read. I've been dealing with a highly manipulative top employee for 2 years, trying to figure him out. This book was written about him, as he has tried all the tricks on me, and I was completely unaware. First time I used the book's suggestions it stopped this manipulator in his tracks - there he was with open mouth and no words. Ha! Thank you Dr. Simon.
