Description

Millions of people, both men and women, can become involved in relationships with manipulators, people who control through emotional manipulation, insults, and mind games. These "toxic" relationships erode self-esteem and make life miserable for the victim. Whether the manipulator is a relative, a spouse or romantic partner, a boss, coworker, or subordinate, or even a trusted friend or advisor, Dr. Harriet B. Braiker, best-selling author of The Disease to Please, shows you how to break this damaging cycle for good.

Who's Pulling Your Strings? will help you end a current destructive relationship, understand how it occurred, and prevent you from ever getting involved in a manipulative relationship again. Using revealing self-assessment quizzes, action plans, and how-to exercises, Dr. Braiker empowers you to:

  • Recognize the signs of a manipulative relationship
  • Spot manipulators and their typical ways of operating
  • Assess your own vulnerability to manipulation
  • Identify the 7 main "Head Games" manipulators play
  • Utilize effective resistance tactics against manipulator's efforts
  • Transform yourself from a "soft" to a "hardened" target
  • Extricate yourself from manipulative relationships that do not change
  • Protect yourself from falling prey to manipulators' control in the future
  • Stop others from pulling your strings once and for all

    With insight, compassionate advice, and self-affirming strategies, Dr. Braiker helps you end any manipulative relationship and regain control of your life, starting right now.

    Excellent Review of the Psychology of Manipulation

    This book presents the mindset and personality characteristics of manipulators - how they think and feel. From their personalities come their manipulation . Victims too have corresponding personality traits that make them vulnerable. Without boundaries, victims base their self esteem on the approval of others. The lamb is sought out by the wolf. Dr. Braiker presents the techniques that put an end to manipulation and she applies them to case histories to make them clear.

    I highly recommend this book.

    What did you love best about Who's Pulling Your Strings??

    I have been married for almost 25 years and for almost all that time I have been controlled and abused by my husband and now … my two sons ( one adult and one almost adult).
    I have been depressed, suicidal, convinced that I am a biggest looser-you name it …
    I was listening to many books about detachment and had huge doubts that this approach works.Today for the first time I was able to “partially detach” from my husband’s abuse and belittling. It felt so good........
    I highly recommend this book. Just keep listening - it will help .

    MIL

    Are you a people pleaser? Are you so focused on being "nice" and help people at great expense to yourself for approval? My husband and I let the MIL come stay with us.. for just "1-3 months tops". This book saved me. Really helped me prepare for some big confrontations coming up. Stop letting people manipulate you.

    Educational and Practical

    A practical and well written book. It focuses on how to recognize manipulation or when your being manipulated and how to recognize your own susceptibility to manipulation (your "buttons"). It can empower you with new strategies, behaviors, and habits to change the relationship dynamics so that you are no longer a mark or target for manipulators.

    Loved it! A must listen.

    I really loved this book. I will listen to it again right away so I learn more and put her strategies into practice. It is definitely a good listen. I already feel empowered and have seen changes.

    Massively Helpful

    I was manipulated by a girlfriend who I was in an 8 month relationship with over 3 years ago. During the relationship, I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety, and I was convinced that those where just lifelong problems that were going to develop no matter what I did, and a lit of other things too. But the majority of what happened was that I was manipulated into believing those things by her, and was manipulated into trusting and believing her instead of myself. Then when I realized the relationship wasn't healthy and wanted to break up, she spread rumors about me and convinced a ton of people to gaslight me. It wasn't until recently that I learned that I actually never had depression or anxiety problems before her, and that I most likely developed those as a byproduct of being so strongly manipulated!

    The book gives great advice and tells you how to see it in other people and what to do if they're trying to manipulate you. As for now, I'm happy with regaining my locus of control and know that I only became unsure of myself after the "relationship" started. Now it's just to trust myself again more and start being fully reliable to myself.
