Learn how to “break the spell” of control with this bestseller hailed by Oprah Winfrey. Controlling People reveals the thought processes of those who try to control others and provides a “spell-breaking” mind-set for those who suffer this insidious manipulation.
Does this sound like someone you know?
*Always needs to be right
*Tells you who you are and what you think
*Implies that you’re wrong or inadequate when you don’t agree
*Is threatened by people who are “different”
*Feels attacked when questioned
*Doesn’t seem to really hear or see you
If any of the above traits sounds familiar, help is on the way! In Controlling People, bestselling author Patricia Evans, tackles the “controlling personality,” and reveals how and why these people try to run other people’s lives. She also explains the compulsion that makes them continue this behavior—even as they alienate others and often lose those they love.
Controlling People helps you unravel the senseless behavior that plagues both the controller and the victim. Can the pattern or spell be broken? YES, says the author.
By understanding the compelling force involved, you can be a catalyst for change and actually become a spell-breaker. Once the spell is broken and the controller sees others as they really are, a genuine connection can be forged and healing can occur.
Should you ever find yourself in the thrall of someone close to you, Controlling People is here to give you the wisdom, power, and comfort you need to be a stronger, happier, and more independent person.
Saving my life and relationships
Empowering and life changing. I’m 35 and I started reading this book. Put it down and picked it up. The layout is perfect. Like a journey into deep waters or a cave but coming out into the light and seeing the world as new a refreshing. To really see individual people and not who I pretend them to be. To really listen and ask questions because I can’t know someone else’s reality.
The book started slow for me but I gradually came to understand and soak it up and I’m grateful that I did. It’s a great perspective I’ve learned from it and I’m lucky I did. The pace of the book was good and it just kept picking up pace throughout. The knowledge I’ve gained from another way of thinking is incredible. Personally incredible and empowering. Thank you so much for this. I am finally learning about myself, what I like, thinking about what makes me tick. I’m an infj introverted individual. This is something I truly feel I needed to learn but it was subtle and powerful. I will never forget this life lesson and/or way of life of explaining what’s going on right in our faces that many people don’t see or realize. It was an emotional journey reading this book. I thank the author for the opportunity to be able to read this. Thanks for helping me know that learning about myself is truly important and the personal power and importance it has on life
