The psychology classic—a detailed study of scientific theories of human nature and the possible ways in which human behavior can be predicted and controlled—from one of the most influential behaviorists of the twentieth century and the author of Walden Two. “This is an important book, exceptionally well written, and logically consistent with the basic premise of the unitary nature of science. Many students of society and culture would take violent issue with most of the things that Skinner has to say, but even those who disagree most will find this a stimulating book.” —Samuel M. Strong, The American Journal of Sociology “This is a remarkable book—remarkable in that it presents a strong, consistent, and all but exhaustive case for a natural science of human behavior…It ought to be…valuable for those whose preferences lie with, as well as those whose preferences stand against, a behavioristic approach to human activity.” —Harry Prosch, Ethics

Originally written as a manual for intelligence field operations... -You'll stop believing in free will.- -LISA SCHMIDT, HUFFINGTON POST One look at the table of contents will give you an 'oh my God' moment. -The Ellipsis Manual is the kind of book that used to be locked away...deep in a vault underground...far away from the prying eyes of those who could misuse its power. With chapter titles like 'Methods of physically hacking the brain' and 'Shutting off human willpower, ' what you're about to learn could make even the most well-trained CIA operative blush... And that's what leads me to say that if you're going to pick up your copy of The Ellipsis Manual today, you've got to make a firm commitment not to go to the dark side with this material. Because once you go through these pages, you'll be able to: -See through the masks people wear - exposing fears and insecurities no one else can see -Instantly detect when a partner, boss, or even a friend is lying to you -Covertly influence anyone, any time (with NO chance of being caught) -Hijack peoples' deepest thoughts, feelings, and favorite gestures...and leverage them to your advantage Implant whatever ideas and beliefs you want into the minds of people you want to persuade, control, or seduce ...and a WHOLE lot more. And once you have these powers, trust me-the temptation to misuse them will certainly be strong. Fight the urge. Stay true to your principles. And use what you're about to learn to help yourself and others-for your own good, as well as theirs.- - Author and persuasion expert MICHAEL WITCOFF -One of the most frighteningly powerful books imaginable. It shows how to make a real life Manchurian Candidate complete with alternate personalities and amnesia. A process I didn't feel was possible till now.- DAVID BARRON a.k.a. DANTALION JONES - 8-time bestselling author including Mind Control 101 -If there was a manual on how to be James Bond, this is it.- -TIM O'KEEFE -Chase Hughes is like Robert Cialdini on steroids.- -ZACH HANDA
