Essential reading if you are dealing with difficult people
Reviewed in Australia on 11 September 2019
I know a lot of the reviews found this book quite confronting but for me, it was life changing.
If you are dealing with very manipulative or difficult people as I am, the book is useful in strategy in how to side step the worst of their behaviour or schemes which target you. It is particularly useful if you operate in some kind of modern “court” or community where your enemy also operates such as a workplace, church or other shared community. Importantly the book allowed me to stop feeling guilty about taking common sense self protective measures.
Also there is useful advice for people meeting others for the first time. Humans really are “foreign countries” as the author puts it and that’s why you should take your time to study them carefully before rushing into a committed relationship which is hard to get out of later on.
