THE ART OF MANIPULATION by R. B. Sparkman | Kirkus Reviews
We want people to do what we want them to do. And RB Sparkman pretty much explain based on his experience as journalist how manipulative people works. Not in a philosoph I’ve read some book that considered as pragmatic power thirst books. Not in a philosophical way as in The Prince, more of psychological and exploit human nature. The thing manippulation I like about this book is how practical the ideas are.
Also this book ended nicely that RB Sparkman mention that in the end, as being pragmatic, this book might give you the idea to keep other people from manipulating you, he also mention about the possibility of making yourself even more unhappy by ruthlessly manipulating people.

It is a very good read for people who want to get some insight on how manipulative people work. In turn, this shows you how you can recognize this behavior from other people in your own life, and if you so wish, practice manipulative behavior yourself. Feb 08, Don rated it it was amazing Shelves: I read this strictly as a reference.
There was no way I was going to change my morals and become something even remotely a Power-Tripping asshole yet, that’s the point, where you have to give the impression that this form of overlording will never be found-out because of the weaselish nature not being nor wanted portrayed openly.
The title caught my attention because of something that happened to me last year and I wanted to confirm my suspicions of the subject person. Yup, that family member I read this strictly as a reference. Yup, that family member is gone from any good and helpful intentional reproach due to the power intimidations being applied by the ‘special friend’. Manipulationn, I have to let things run their course and hope the future brings a total realization on how wrong they were against me.
If anything, I’m glad to had stumbled across this book.
