Publisher Description

Dr. George K. Simon knows how people push your buttons: your children—especially teens—are experts at it, as is your mate. A coworker may quietly undermine your efforts while professing to be helpful, or your boss may prey on your weaknesses. Manipulative people have two goals: to win and to look good doing it. Too often, those they abuse are only vaguely aware of what is happening to them. In this eye-opening book, you'll discover: —four reasons why victims have a hard time leaving abusive relationships —power tactics manipulative people use to push their own agendas and justify their behavior —ways to redefine the rules of engagement between you and the abuser —how to spot potential weaknesses in your character that can set you up for manipulation —two tools for personal empowerment to help you maintain greater strength in all relationships

    " This book could have benefited from a tighter edit, but the errors didn't detract that much from the writing. Covert aggressor is a more palatable way to process the sociopathic personality, and CA fits many people who don't exactly fall under sociopath. In reading this, I discovered that people I once termed passive aggressive are really covert aggressive. "

    " I have so much to say about this book and all of its fascinating and essential insights. But I will write that later! Basically I recommend this book to EVERYBODY ON THE ENTIRE PLANET along with The Wisdom of the Enneagram: The Complete Guide to Psychological and Spiritual Growth for the Nine Personality Types. I swear that these two books have helped me unlike any others to understand people and develop a working philosophy for my interactions with them, and with myself, and just, a very accessible and nuanced examination of human nature.

    " This book doesn't go into a lot of detail, but that's OK. It's an easy read. I came away with a general insight into how to spot and deal with a class of people the author labels as covert-aggressive. These types appear to be friendly and helpful, but are actually just disguising their behavior in order to manipulate others to achieve their own goals. "

    " While reading this book, I could vividly remember many times where I had been manipulated in previous arguments throughout the years. I knew I wasn't crazy! HA! I can definitely pinpoint when someone is just manipulating to try and get there way and although I need better practice on how to deal with this....at least I can recognize it now. Very quick, easy, informative read. "

    " A helpful presentation of the character of manipulative people, how they manipulate others, and how you can counter this in a practical way. A useful book, though some parts are a bit slow going. "

    " Helpful in identifying the behavior of manipulative narcissistic people, whether you work with them or have them in your family--very useful info, confirms THEY are the problem, puts the blame on the manipulator that lacks a conscience. "
