BOOK REVIEW
“...I consider your genuine blockbuster, "Controlling People," to be probably the single greatest Grande Synthesis I have yet seen. And I have seen hundreds of hundreds of ambitious but partial attempts at this over my 75 years. Human kind urgently needs this, both on an individual and a collective level. Nothing else seems to be working very effectively. “ —Dr. David L. Quinby Professor, Emeritus Dept. of Psychology, Youngstown

Summary
Controlling People takes us on a journey through a maze of senseless behaviors woven into our world. We discover the words and incantations that produce a controller's spellbound behavior. And, we find out how to fend off any controller's attempts to control us.

Based on thousands of cases, CONTROLLING PEOPLE reveals how controllers struggle to shape the lives of others. We’ll discover the forces that compel them and why they, as if under a spell, often destroy the relationships that they want most to preserve. We’ll see for the first time the processes that shape them and most important, we’ll find out what controllers are really trying to do. We’ll know why, when they tell others who and what they are—what they think and feel, and even their motives, controllers don’t realize the senselessness of their own behavior. Lastly we’ll meet some formerly spellbound controllers and find out what they have to say about themselves.

Readers Praise—What people are saying about "Controlling People"

"I feel a compelling force to tell you that I consider your genuine blockbuster--Controlling People__to be probably the single greatest 'grande synthesis' I have yet seen. And I have seen hundreds of hundreds of ambitious but partial attempts at this over my 75 years.
I passionately hope you can persuade your publisher to give this gem the widest possible publicity among both lay and professional audiences. Human kind urgently needs this, both on an individual and a collective level. Nothing else seems to be working very effectively. " — David L. Quinby (Professor Emeritus Youngstown State University, Youngstown, Ohio.)

"I finished reading the book . It really brings back a lot of stuff that I endured growing up and talks about something, that until recently, no one even believed existed, Defining people. For years, while I was growing up, I tried explaining exactly the same things that you describe in your book, to psychologists and social workers, that all told me, that I was imagining things and that I was trying to start trouble. Your latest book, is the first, that actually describes in detail what an abuser actually does and how they think."

"Your new book, Controlling People, arrived several days ago and I have been burning the midnight oil, reading every word voraciously and making notations throughout. I greatly appreciate what you have done, Patricia, in piecing this perplexing problem together in the way that you have. "The Strangest Paradox" and the "True Connection" chapters really captivated me."

"I want to tell you that I thought I knew what control was about--that you wouldn’t have much new to tell me--I’d read your books so many times. But, oh, you blew my mind. Now I finally know what was wrong. Do you know what that means to me? I can’t begin to tell you.

For years I couldn’t understand why he’d look through me or walk away when I was talking, or put me down and say it was just teasing. I’d have spent my life wondering."
