Updated on April 8, 2013

My Review

This is a potentially life changing book and one of the best I've ever read. I recommend it to anyone who can read! It comes complete with quizzes to help you identify whether you are a hard target or a soft target.

Plus, find out who may be pulling your strings when you read about common behaviors exhibited by potential Puppetmasters! Includes strategies on how to become a hardened target and escape dangerous relationships.

By the time you're done this book you'll know more about who you are and who you aren't. You'll find answers as to why certain people just seem to drain all your energy leaving you emotionally and physically exhausted and what you can do about it. You'll find out if your strings are being pulled by your boss, spouse, children, friends and family.

Turns the light on in the dark places. See who's pulling your strings. Required reading!
