After a lifetime of beating my head against the wall, not understanding how and why people do the manipulative, controlling things they do, I bought this.
I cried when I read it, because for the first time, I got it. Their control and their behavior wasn't about me.
The biggest thing I remember about this book, is the FOG. Manipulators walk around in a FOG, using Fear, Obligation, and Guilt to keep you in line with what they want. It has case studies, and goes into the reasons why our controllers do what they do. It gives you the tools to recognize what they are doing, and the keys to unlock the behavior. Because, believe me, they won't stop on their own. And, believe it or not, they - knowing full well that they do it - have convinced themselves that they are not the problem.
Highly recommended reading. Bring the tissues.
