Where did the idea for AntiManipulation come from? Like all good tales, it all started a long time ago...
WHEN YOU BUY SOMETHING, ARE YOU BUYING IT BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BUY, OR BECAUSE THEY WANT YOU TO BUY?
AND HOW WOULD YOU EVEN KNOW THE DIFFERENCE?
There are countless unscrupulous individuals and businesses out there, each with a very strong vested interest in you buying their stuff – whether that’s products, courses, services, or even ideas, beliefs, and theories.
So strong is their need for you to buy from them, that they will stop at nothing in their attempts to manipulate you into buying.
Imagine if you could find out about their approaches, so that you could protect yourself?
That’s the premise behind the new book AntiManipulation, which is coming soon from the international best-selling author of The Masks We Wear and the Winning In Life And Work series.
AntiManipulation, published on 4th March 2023, is the book that exposes the tricks, tools, and techniques the unscrupulous use to attempt to manipulate us into buying their stuff. It does this so that you can be aware of their manipulation, which makes you better able to defend against it, and to avoid being pushed into buying things you don’t actually need or want.
It’s time to put the balance of power back into your hands!
There’s a lot of costs involved in getting a book out, including full editing, proof-reading, cover design, publishing, marketing, etc.
There’s also the question of whether there actually is a market for the book!
So I tackled both of those using a Crowdfunder campaign which ran throughout November 2022.
There were 13 different types and levels of reward which people could buy (ranging from pre-ordering the book, to signed copies, to merch, to discounted coaching, and more), and I’m thrilled that around 40 people contributed, which rocks!
The book will be on general sale in eBook (Amazon, Apple, Barnes&Noble, etc) and paperback from 4th March 2023.
It will be open for pre-orders in the run-up to the launch, come back nearer the time for more details on the pre-order options.
