The title says it all. Combining divination with an inherently murderous fighting art will leave you demon-possessed for sure. Avoid if you care for your soul. Is learning a fighting art really worth being possessed?

Some repeated chapters from Mental Dominance but nevertheless a fun read.

So I found this book in my creepy ass basement. Real fucky book but a fun read. This book is about using the enemy's mind against them so you can avoid physical altercations altogether.

The first half of the book is about pseudo-science indicators that determine a person’s personality, and how to manipulate it. This part is fucky, talks about birth signs, hair color, sibling count, and random benign shit. Then they talk about Japanese social graces. This part does not translate well for English

This book provided a keen insight into the power of the mind - or power people perceive the mind to have.

At it's core, it directly shows you how to "read" people. Thus, by having that insight into another person's personality, it outlines many ways you can attack them through various mental manipulations - should that be your goal.

However, it's not a devious book suggesting such actions. It also advocates many times that reviewing this information will allow you to defend yourself against the me

On one hand, it's just psychology, marketing, martial arts, hypnosis, Asian spiritual theory, and common sense. On the other hand, it's all these things in one place. I'm not going to remember how the elements react to each other, and what that means, and try to find out what element the person I'm talking to is, then try to be the other element that interacts... or hypnotize anyone, or use their birth order against them. But it was pretty cool to read about. The rampant use of exclamation point ...more

The books I read as i clean off my shelves... This one really should be renamed 'mind manipulation lite: the cliff notes version'. It had some good stories to tell, but really this is not going to teach you anything. Except now i know that it really WAS a panhandler that I ran into last year telling me a flock of lies on a street corner.... and to not pick up anything somebody drops in front of you because they might kick you in the head and then steal your wallet... This is not the book if you ...more

It was a good book. It showed you how to protect you from people trying to mess with your mind. It showed you cool horoscope type things that were pretty true.

Right now i dont like this book but i got it for science so i can get a good grad in there. But i am going to try to finish reading this book so i no what it is about. i no right now it is about Black Science i no that is the title but it is about that and this book is not really about science it is about a person and that is all i noo right now.

Essential reading for understanding the methods of mind control as well as a few tidbits on Ninja history. Great to read along with "What to say when you talk to yourself" (Shad Helmstetter) for two diverse perspectives on how the subconscious mind effects human behavior.
Yusuf Ks
in my opinion this book contains many useful information that focus on mind control/manipulation. It's shocked me how people are controlled and manipulated easily. Knowledge is a weapon, you can use it to protect yourself.
Sue
The book was a little scattered in it's segments, but I enjoyed the real-life examples for all the different types of 'manipulation'.
Mind-triggers
All in all the title may deceive you. It is not a How to book. Provides examples and leaves the reader to decide on there own. Good Book
James
Not bad. There are some good tidbits of information, but a small majority of it was common knowledge.
Kyle
Surprisingly good.

Needs more explication, leaves certain ideas under developed.
Cody
Meh, thought this book was a real stretch to fill the pages by the author.
Joseph Whitehouse
