What is the name of this book? ?
I believe it was an old psychology book (published maybe 1970’s-80s) that described how cults and leaders use manipulation tactics to gain control over people. I know it became well known for referencing Charles Manson and a technique he used that would later be known as ‘love-bombing’ I have heard of it because I watch a lot of videos by romance psychologists/therapists and may have heard them talk about this book before, specifically because of the love-bombing and how eery these ways of manipulating people are being used today in dating.
