Pulling Your Own Strings: Dynamic Techniques for Dealing with Other People and Living Your Life As You Choose
a book by Wayne Dyer
(our site's book review)
Much like in his book The Sky’s the Limit, Dyer shows, in this book, how to be at cause and not at effect. He exposes the victim game, and other games people play to avoid the responsibility of being creatively alive. He does what good social policy ought to do: define people by their strengths, potentials, and resources, not by their weaknesses and deficiencies. He guides the reader away from the other-directedness trap. And he also helps them avoid the negative effects of authoritarians and their institutions.
