CONTROL is all around us – between husbands and wives, boyfriends and girlfriends, parents and children, teachers and students, and bosses and employees. Even though LaMont Prospect earned a Bachelor’s Degree in English, a Master’s Degree in Social Work and a Doctorate in School Psychology, this book does not preach or tell people what to do or how to live their lives. It has no psychological jargon or textbook language. If someone was to say “you need to do A, B, C and D with your life,” that would be controlling. Of the 44 chapters, thirty-four are real stories about real people and how the need for control ruined their lives and the lives of others around them. The other 10 chapters are about entities that try to control people. While some of these entities may seem rather obvious, most forms of control are very subtle. The goal is to help readers recognize unhealthy forms of control and how to deal with it. – About LaMont Prospect LaMont Prospect was born in Racine, WI.
