Human Manipulation – A Handbook
There are many ways to handle manipulation by individuals, a group, or government. Firstly, we need to recognise and understand a manipulative act, how it works, its motives, and why we, in particular, are its victims. To this end, the author seeks to illuminate “Human Manipulation” at all levels.
This analysis provides the reader with a detailed definition, an understanding of the history and morality of human manipulation and an insight into the psychology of the manipulator and victim. The book identifies and examines 450 manipulative techniques in detail and explains what a victim can do to recognise, avoid and counteract them. Manipulation generally relies on human ignorance. So the better informed we are, the better our chances of detecting and managing manipulation when it is directed at us. This handbook is probably the most comprehensive study of human manipulation anywhere. It is a “must have” for any serious student of the subject. (ISBN: 9788494085338).

“Based on Machiavelli’s The Prince”, this modernisation describes what modern capitalists need to know to be able to get and hold onto corporate power. Machiavelli’s original notorious and amoral guide was written for one of the Medici princes. It was probably one of the world’s first management books.
Following in Machiavelli’s steps, this new “chief executive’s guide” leads us through all the important skills recommended in acquiring, defending and extending control over your organisation. It deals with many of the subjects which confront the modern manager and executive every day: managing hatred, contempt, and opposition, eliminating your enemies, successful deceit, cruelty, compassion, corporate independence, opportunism, self-reliance, useful management expedients, managing managers and employees, taking and ignoring advice, using consultants, the brokerage of influence and the careful use of brutality.
