oh yes, manipulation is sweet.

First rule: know that the person you want to manipulate is human.
Second rule: know that humans have egos and 99% of them cater to ego.
Third (and final) rule: cater to that ego – get what you want.

…and you didn’t even have to spend $15 on a book to tell you that.

Now, use this information wisely and do not forget about that whole – karma is a bitch thing…
