Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(9), 722. Reviews the book, Manipulation people like: How to use behavior modification in everyday life by Cabot L. Jaffee and Wayne A. Burroughs (1979). This brief volume promises help with problems in daily living, child and spouse management, dating, sexual relations, industrial manipulation, and self-control. Throughout the book, use of the term manipulation emphasizes the potentially obtrusive nature of planned behavior influence As is the case with all do-it yourself behavior modification books, there is no evidence that the particular approach, presentation, techniques, or detail of this book make it effective in changing the reader's behavior or that of anyone in the reader's environment.
