Publisher's Summary

Have you wanted to be the one in control for a change? Are you often the one that is seen as expendable, or easily controlled? No matter how much you try to better yourself, do you find yourself getting knocked right back down by society around you and you struggle to make your way back up? If you are ready to live your life in control of yourself and how those around you see you once and for all, keep reading.

Manipulators are everywhere - spinning their webs of deceit and control wherever they can and taking advantage as they do so. They seek to take control of everyone and everything around them simply because they can - many manipulators are born with a sense of manipulating others, and they utilize this as effectively as they can manage. Despite this fact that many manipulators are simply born that way, you too can learn the skills utilized by the dark manipulators in the world. By opening your world to dark psychology, you begin to understand the actions of those around you and how they can be used to better yourself for a change. Within this audiobook, you will find:

  • The definition of dark psychology, as well as the modern uses in society and what dark psychology users look like
  • Information on the dark triad
  • How to read a wide range of body language
  • A comprehensive guide to covert emotional manipulation and the tactics utilized by covert manipulators
  • Definitions of dark persuasion as well as how to use it, detailing the principles of persuasion, and several darkly persuasive techniques
  • What mind control is and how it works
  • How to play mind games
  • A guide to deception and the types of lies people tell
  • How to brainwash
  • A brief guide to NLP
  • Dark seduction
  • And more!

Elementary

I expected to learn some previously unknown secrets of psychology. Not necessarily to subject others to it, but to guard myself against any, and attempt to further bullet-proof my mind against manipulation. This book seems to have been written by a used car salesman teaching a grade school child, or extraterrestrial about the very basics of lying and body language. I do sincerely mean very basics. For the purpose of the Audible version specifically, I also found the narrator to be underwhelmed - as in the way he speaks keeps your attention for the anticipation of some climactic reveal of a secret technique or trick, but the author just never provided him with any to speak of.

Trash

This was painful to listen to and I eventually gave up. Nothing is original thought. It’s super repetitive and gives no insight to any of these behaviors. Don’t waste your time or money.

Curiously Ambiguous:

I would state that I am glad this title was purchased using an Audible free credit, however, I am not convinced this work is worth even this for most. For some, though, they may learn new material. While the material contained herein isn’t all scientifically valid, not is all of it new for individuals such as myself, at least the author made several good points on how to protect oneself from master manipulators, Dark triad personalities and the like. Additionally, some of the techniques in this book could prove pragmatically beneficial to some, and the author emphasizes the importance of ethical behavior in seeking to influence others. On a final note, the reading performance of this book seemed to have a slowed cadence which could have been a computing or recording error, which made it somewhat difficult to process. Nonetheless, this work may be useful to those interested in a purview of the subject.

Exactly what I needed

It is a simple way to be persuasive in sales or any area where you need to influence i.e. asking for resources, job interviews, etc. My husband calls it the Jedi Mind Trick but its almost non-fail if you practice

Great Information

I listen this book for a class, and it blew my mind. "Influence" is a great tool to comprehend society in general and how it is manipulated for good or bad in various instances. The vocabulary is not academic, is very simple and easy to listen for anyone.
