"To subdue an enemy without fighting is the greatest of skills." —Sun Tzu

Modern methods of mind control—employed in propaganda, indoctrination, even advertising—can be traced back to Ninja strategies of psychological warfare developed and refined centuries ago in medieval Japan. The Ninja were accomplished in covert operations such as espionage, assassination, and sabotage, and were feared for their ability to break through an adversary's mental defenses and use his fears, insecurities, superstitions, and hopes and beliefs against him.

Written by noted martial artist and scholar Dr. Haha Lung, Mind Manipulation is a clear, modern-day guide to effective Ninja techniques, including:

  • Revelation of an enemy's deepest secrets

  • Ways to implant false memories

  • How to detect when someone is lying

  • Visualizations to affect physical health

You will also learn defenses against mind-manipulating techniques commonly used in media and politics. Psychological warfare is an unavoidable reality in today's world. The lessons in this book will prepare you to meet any challenge.

Dr. Haha Lung is the author of more than a dozen books on martial arts, including The Ancient Art of Strangulation, Assassin!, Knights of Darkness, and Shadowland. He lives in Ohio.

Christopher Prowant is a researcher, author, and martial artist. He holds a black belt in zendokan-ryu taijutsu and a teaching degree in tiger-style kung-fu. He lives in Ohio.
