5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent review of manipulative behaviour, 28 Aug. 2006
This review is from: Who's Pulling Your Strings?: How to Break the Cycle of Manipulation and Regain Control of Your Life (Paperback)
This book is an excellent summary of the manipulative personality. It correctly identifies the manipulative as totally self-centred, or incredibly "insecure". I have found it fascinating that the term "control freak" is sometimes used as a "friendly" way of saying, "I am going to manipulate you".

It is a topic that has been neglected by the "experts". The manipulator can send you into depression and self-hatred. I have had the experience where even the manipulator suggested that I need "help", and either did not see that they were the problem, or was another way of carrying on the manipulation.

Excellent stuff. I will be more confident of spotting these horrible people more in the future.

Rather unkind and acerbic comment.

Well Malcolm Tremain is either a manipulator himself or he thinks he is oh so perfect.
