I love the book but got ripped off when Amazon.com's site suggested I buy this book and "Black Science: Ancient and modern techniques of ninja mind manipulation" together. They are the SAME BOOK! Somebody at Amazon.com should pay A LOT MORE ATTENTION to their site. They should not be tricking us into buying the SAME book, with just different titles. This is a great book, but just get this one. Don't buy BLACK SCIENCE also, or you will find out that you just waisted your money!

Format: Paperback
There's so much hatred in the martial arts community directed at this author, Ha Ha Lung, that I knew they must be trying to hide something. So I bought this book, BLACK SCIENCE and gave it a read. I ended up staying up all night reading it. The material in this book is unbelievable. So I bought the rest of his books and most of them were equally incredible. This is hard-core information on manipulating people. Insights you'd normally have to spend 8 years in college getting your PhD in psychology. Ha Ha Lung's books are packed with arcane secrets you won't find in other texts on martial arts. I think the reason he's so disliked is because he gives away the good stuff. I always look forward to his next book. NOTE: If you have this book you won't need to buy Mind Manipulation. They are the same book with a title change. Black Science is printed on better paper and will last much longer.

I just completed this book and I found it very engrossing in terms of how much information they present to you. I did not want to stop reading it every night because of how interesting the topics were that they discussed. From hypnotism and how it's used to what the Japanese have recently done to play "mind games". If your interested in any sort of "black science", this is definitely a great read that packs so much information in such a small book.

Format: Paperback
The topic of this book is the various ways in which others purposefully and maybe sometimes not so purposefully use psychological tactics to alter our behavior.

In that way, this book deals with important, critical issues yet unfortunately it does so in much too facile a way. In this way, the reader -- upon completing it -- can wrongly assume themselves informed on a series of topics that genuinely command much greater attention.

In no particular order of importance, this book examines the various ways in which others can affect our behavior with reference to the following issues:

1) What does an examination of our body language tell them. From the 1970s forward this topic alone has commanded book length treatments. One such treatment can be found in Darrick Bickerton's excellent Language and Species which shows the connection between spoken and unspoken languages (and thereby somewhat erases the divide between at least human and primate "language").

2) What does our language usage and word choice say about the way in which we process information. Again, for a (much) better treatment of this issue I would recommend the great Lakoff and Johnson book Language and Metaphor as well as Lakoff's later follow up entries, Philosophy in the Flesh and Where Mathematics Comes From.

3) What are our genetic imperatives. While the authors of this book remain rooted in the 70s by quoting for example the famous Maslow table (among other dated sources including B.F. Skinner), more recent reading would better focus on the neuorscientific approaches found for example in Harvard's Steven Pinker's How the Mind Works.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must read not only for martial artists, but for the regular person. This is especially true in our modern day and age where the mental manipulation may be greater now than ever due to increasing technological advancement and intrusion upon our privacy. We are being manipulated constantly from all angles - politicians, media propaganda, Madison Avenue, cults, religious & other 'authority' figures, and of course your modern neighborhood psychopath.

Knowing how people are so easily brainwashed and manipulated is key to discerning for yourself how to avoid being a victim yourself. The author does a great job of covering how the mind works and integrating how ancient and modern 'mind-slayers' use our own psychological hindrances and mind filters such as phobias, doubts, past traumas, prejudices, desires, insecurities and more to control us.

I really like how he integrates quotes from past masters, writers and strategists that apply to what he is talking about. For example this quote of Wu Ch'i (430-481 BCE) "One man willing to throw away his life is enough to terrorize a thousand" is so true today with what is happening in the so called 'War on Terror'. Seems like not much has changed. Or Sun Tzu - "To subdue an enemy without fighting is the greatest of skills" is so applicable today in how there is an silent war being waged on our minds daily.

Very insightful book with great real life examples to demonstrated the power of mind control and mind manipulation. Some of the information is downright scary but sobering nonetheless - psychotronics, electro-magnetic warfare, & especially about how our modern intelligence agencies have been (and probably still are) pouring millions of our tax dollars into mind control (ex.
