Manipulation, what is it?

Who recommended:  Lynne Waymon

What I am reading:  Make Your Contacts Count (Networking Know-How For Business and Career Success) by Anne Baber and Lynne Waymon


Where in the book: page 36

Why I am reading: Learning how to network. Cause believe me, I have no CLUE!

Which quote: “Manipulation = when you connive to get something for yourself through misdirection, subterfuge or telling only part of the truth.”

How this quote adjusted my thinking:      

Many people operate this way.  I wonder, do they know they are doing it?  When they get what they want, do they feel good about themselves?
