I consider this work about the four basic temperaments first outlined by Hippocrates and later studied by Pavlov in his dogs to be senior in scope to Freud, Jung and the last century of psychobabble.

It is a very good foundation for beginning the study of brainwashing. It has made me more watchful as to what and whom I will allow into my personal space. It is worth the price to learn how to deal with police and battlf officials.

I bought extra copies for my kids. Here is a good quote from the book, page The safety of the free world seems therefore to lie in a cultivation not only of courage, moral virture and logic, but of humour: This particular book is the best book I have come across on the fascinating subject of brainwashing and thought control.

If you are interested in the aforementioned topics, I suggest that you choose this book first. I qilliam more books would come wil,iam on brainwashing and thought control. Sargany for now, we are limited to a few choices. I found this book much more interesting than “Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: The only book that I have found that is close to being as good as this batttle is “Bounded Choice: True Believers and Charismatic Cults”, though Bounded Choice is written more about cults and brainwashing than just brainwashing and thought control in general.

Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I am a retired Psychologist and usually enjoy reading non-fiction. I found this book very hard to read and am struggling to get beyond the beginning chapters.

William Sargant, Battle for the Mind

I am interested in Brainwashing and have studied Pavlov. I stopped going to movies and watching TV years ago because I felt I was highly suggestible. We need to protect ourselves at every turn. I know I was brainwashed by my religious and family upbringing. I wish the book was written in willuam better style for conveying the message. This is a good read on the “Art and Craft” of Brainwashing with a great deal of History thrown in to complete a rather complex picture.

I recommend this read.


William Sargant

The Battle for the Mind is one of those books that transformed understanding–in this case of how the physiology of religious conversion, brainwashing, and submission to totalitarian leaders was highly similar or even the same.

Of course, later thinking has become more sophisticated and developed, but this remains a clear and persuasive account, and represented a breakthrough yhe understanding when it was first published. The book is written in language that is not technical and it can be easily understood by anyone likely to be generally interested in the subject matter.

It is a good read, and anyone who is in the business of changing how others think or perceive reality or who is subject to the work of others in this field–politicians, advertisers Anyone who wants to know more about how trauma and stress affects the brain should definitely check this book out.

After you read this book you will only have more questions. Awesome introduction in to a very important field of science. See all 37 reviews. Amazon Giveaway allows you to run promotional giveaways in order to create buzz, reward your audience, and attract new followers and customers.
