Manipulation is all around. Advertisements manipulate us to buy health and beauty products that we don’t need. Companies manipulate us to take jobs with the promises of big sign on bonuses that they don’t always honor. Parents manipulate their children to eat their veggies by promising them big muscles, toys, or money.
Manipulation, for the most part, is dangerous. It hurts people. It tricks people into doing things that they don’t want to. Some manipulation is worse than others. A parent manipulating their children into eating veggies isn’t as bad a spouse tricking their partner into participating in something that they don’t want to.
This book is here to help learn exactly what it means to be manipulated and what you can do about it.
