... into the motivations of manipulators and shows you how easy it is to deny the manipulation
on November 11, 2014
This book goes deep into the motivations of manipulators and shows you how easy it is to deny the manipulation. This book also gives good strategies for dealing with the manipulation. But, it fails to deal with the issue of MONEY! Oh, the book mentions co-workers and bosses, but just skirts the issue of being manipulated with MONEY, but does not directly address it! Both employers and family members can manipulate you with money. I wish the book had directly addressed this issue.
Also, the book takes a "just say no" attitude and all will be well. My experience is that when I stand up for myself, the other person ESCALATES. The book says that manipulators want the path of least resistance. The book also mentions that a manipulator may "change tactics" if you stand up for yourself. I have experienced this. But the book doesn't mention what to do if the person ESCALATES.
