    I've read some book that considered as pragmatic power thirst books. The Prince and Leviathan were among them. And somehow this should be considered as contemporary pragmatic power thirst book. Living is a complicated thing. Sometimes you want to die but you can't. We need to know how to behave and socialize with other people. We want people to do what we want them to do. And RB Sparkman pretty much explain (based on his experience as journalist) how manipulative people works. Not in a philosoph I've read some book that considered as pragmatic power thirst books.

We need to know how to behave and socialize with other people. We want people to do what we want them to do. And RB Sparkman pretty much explain (based on his experience as journalist) how manipulative people works. Not in a philosophical way as in The Prince, more of psychological and exploit human nature. The thing that I like about this book is how practical the ideas are. Some of them are familiar and sometimes trigger your memory when you realize that you were being manipulated and NOW I SEE THE LIGHT. Also this book ended nicely that RB Sparkman mention that in the end, as being pragmatic, this book might give you the idea to keep other people from manipulating you, he also mention about the possibility of making yourself even more unhappy by ruthlessly manipulating people.

    a marvelous little book that’s easy to eat. full of practical advice such as: 1) smile before AND after saying a smile worthy sentence; 2) be meek and eat crow. for example, when someone is disproportionally fiery and responds heatedly, reply back, “perhaps you’re right”; 3) unveil hidden and true reasons from a reserved interlocutor with the magic phrase, “is there any other reason in addition to that?”; and 4) never let others have a high outstanding indebtedness to you—don’t shy away from getting a marvelous little book that’s easy to eat. full of practical advice such as: 1) smile before AND after saying a smile worthy sentence; 2) be meek and eat crow. for example, when someone is disproportionally fiery and responds heatedly, reply back, “perhaps you’re right”; 3) unveil hidden and true reasons from a reserved interlocutor with the magic phrase, “is there any other reason in addition to that?”; and 4) never let others have a high outstanding indebtedness to you—don’t shy away from getting collateral from a friend. these are just a few counter intuitive-esque nuggets of wisdom. don’t believe me, please read.

    It's a fun read. So interesting because a lot of what's in here is kind of biz and psychology 101, but, told from the POV of the 1970s, it was probably cutting edge at the time. And I was reminded of people who say 'I'm not lying' or 'I'm telling you the truth' - that, when it's sprinkled through their general conversation, RUN from them, they're not friends, they're liars. I read it because I heard Naval Ravikant talked about it as an important book during a podcast. I'd give it three stars, the It's a fun read.

It lags in the middle for a while.

    This book details how manipulators operates. The most valuable part of this book is the Unargue Technique which is a step by step method to getting people to be more sympathetic to your cause. This technique can be used in business deals, job interviews, etc.

    -We humans can't resist intermittent reinforcement. -if you treat a person well all the time, you are going to be taken for granted. people take for granted what they know they can have. -He can never take you for granted, because you alternate between the caress and the bite, between treating him well and treating him badly. He senses that he can't have you, and his instincts make him want you, sometimes almost desperately. -First, you set up a pattern of reinforcement by giving your manipulatee s -We humans can't resist intermittent reinforcement. -if you treat a person well all the time, you are going to be taken for granted. people take for granted what they know they can have. -He can never take you for granted, because you alternate between the caress and the bite, between treating him well and treating him badly. He senses that he can't have you, and his instincts make him want you, sometimes almost desperately. -First, you set up a pattern of reinforcement by giving your manipulatee something he wants (you must provide something he wants.). Second, withdraw it, and watch the person come under your control as he struggles to have the reinforcement restored. -Assuming you have completed step one, you should be giving the subject of your manipulation what he wants. But don't get carried away with the reinforcement. The first thing you know, your manipulatee will take you for granted, and then you won't be able to wrench the time of day out of him. Keep him on his toes. The moment you detect the slightest hint that your "pigeon" is taking you for granted, withdraw his reinforcement on the spot. -sometimes you feel like she pays less than rapt attention to what you say. Immediately you know the time has come to back off and be a little cool and uninterested. Ignore her for a while. But don't act like a hurt child and look foolish in the process. Instead indicate through your behavior that you can take her or leave her. If possible, subtly make her jealous by talking to other women in front of her. Remember, people want what they can't have. "I want you, but I can always have other women if you're not interested. Take it or leave it." Now she doesn't know exactly where she stands with you. -manipulator accepts reality and calculates a way to turn the situation to his advantage. -Make him think that you don't need him, but that he needs you. Remember, never give the slightest hint of desperation; instead, radiate confidence and independence. Show your antagonist how he needs what you propose and indicate that it makes little difference to you which way he decides. -manipulatee should never knowing that you're handling him. He should never see or feel the hook going in. But when you let on that you know a lot; you're brandishing that shiny hook right in his face. Anyone but a fool would smell something fishy and refuse to be manipulated. -benefit when you act like you don't know much. It makes people want to help you. People like a person who seems to know less than they do. And as a result, they'll help him succeed. -Meekness opens you up to different ideas. So it helps you sidestep the most dangerous quicksand that can threaten your powers of reasoning: thinking you already know everything you need to know. -six steps of Unargue below: -Try to become friends. Make the person you want to manipulate like you. In your conversations talk about subjects the two of you agree on. -Listen, listen, listen. Hear out his objection to your ideas. shutting your mouth and doing a little intelligent listening you may realize that some of his objections are so shallow that they won't really get in your way. Ignore these. There's no sense upsetting him by haggling over his trivial misgivings. -Agree with his feelings and massage his ego out of the way. Before you can swing his logic your way, you have to deal with your manipulatee's feelings. You have to massage his ego until his fists unclench. Then you'll have his feelings out of the way, he'll let his guard down, and suddenly he'll be baby-vulnerable to your reasoning. The way you massage your antagonist's ego is to agree with his feelings-not his point of view, just his feelings. "Yes, but. . ." Routine is wrong, Instead say, "I don't blame you for feeling that way. I've felt that way myself." That phrase will work like a lover's caress to unclench the fists of the worst hothead. Wouldn't that make you feel better if you were mad? your manipulate should be feeling close enough to you that he'll be wide open to your ideas. You've dealt with his feelings, and they're out of your way for the time being. Instead of fighting back, gentle him with, "I know how you feel." -Point out areas of agreement. Appeal to common values. People, as a rule, are touched deeply as you underline areas of common agreement and common objectives.

    Started reading this book after my love of the character from my last book i read. "Wayne" in the book "Bands of Mourning" or "Breeze" in the Mistborn series. The way characters like these get out of life and death situations with some simple mind games played with the opponent, incited an urge in me to read their psychology . This book definitely tells you about tricks how con-men used to con people in 1970's and would allow you to not be fooled in today's world, where everything is a market.

    The wisdom presented in this book is easy to understand, since it is often illustrated by examples based on the experiences of the writer. It is a very good read for people who want to get some insight on how manipulative people work. In turn, this shows you how you can recognize this behavior from other people in your own life, and if you so wish, practice manipulative behavior yourself.

    I read this strictly as a reference. There was no way I was going to change my personal morals and become something even remotely resembling a power-tripping asshole. Yet, that's the point of the book, where you have to give the impression that this form of overlording will never be found out because of the weasely nature of not wanting to be accused of the practice; nor any desire to be portrayed openly being a complete and total Dick or sneaky, unethical Jerk and carefully avoid blowing the ef I read this strictly as a reference. There was no way I was going to change my personal morals and become something even remotely resembling a power-tripping asshole. Yet, that's the point of the book, where you have to give the impression that this form of overlording will never be found out because of the weasely nature of not wanting to be accused of the practice; nor any desire to be portrayed openly being a complete and total Dick or sneaky, unethical Jerk and carefully avoid blowing the effort taken to establish shyster antics with any discovery of their inner motives. "He or she is a great person!" No, they're not. Fooled you into thinking that's the case with lies and however else you mistakenly came to that conclusion in the thinking of that particular narcissistic individual. To lack consideration towards others and be devoid of scruples of any distinction. The title caught my attention because of something that happened to me a few years ago and I wanted to confirm my suspicions of the subject person. Yup, that family member is gone from any good and helpful reproach due to the power intimidations being applied by the 'special friend'. Sadly, I have to let things run their course and hope the future brings a total realization of how wrong they were against me. Might be a long time in coming, or again sadly, may never resolve itself before my passing. As they say: can't dwell in the past, and to hell with people (even family members) who are too fucked up with themselves to see they are being played and do not realize it at all. If anything, I'm glad to have stumbled across this book. It was a guide to see these weasels for what they are and learn to see the signs. I should have read this many, many years ago...
