I'd say the currently available psychohistory is to be found in advertising, plus mind control cults. So it's not much above the cookbook level,
yet, I don't think. If there was yet a true theory from the ground up, that governed an advertisement, we would all own the product. And if a mind
control cult had generally-effective tech, we would all already belong to it.
There are tricks, though, plus like in yoga/meditation, NLP, ritual magic, confidence swindling, stage magic ...and then neuroscience.
But I think many people who explore systematizing this don't write a book, they just try to be hired as messiah, once they get some skills.
