Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Psychotherapist McCoy shows readers how to identify the type of manipulative man they're involved with, deal with the issues his behavior provokes, and ultimately, salvage the relationship--or move on.

Review:

"Did he promise you the stars and play you like a musical instrument?' Then you know the manipulative man. Psychotherapist McCoy presents a chilling expos of 10 types of manipulators ('Mama's Boys,' 'Eternal Jocks,' etc.) who prey on women's neediness and gullibility. This is not a feel-good book, yet it's compellingly readable. McCoy (The Ultimate Book of Personality Tests) is a police consultant, and her work may be what creates the grim undertone. She uses case studies from her counseling practice, blow-by-blow deconstructions of each type's manipulative techniques and tests to determine which type the reader may be dealing with. Most valuable are the chapters on narcissists and psychopaths. These predators are the most dangerous because they can make themselves seem so appealing, flattering and fun at the beginning of the relationship. The author also has good advice for women involved with violent manipulators. In all cases, McCoy warns, 'You do not 'know' a manipulative man; he has worked diligently at spinning a web of contradictions, confusion and falsehoods.' Wrapping up, McCoy offers suggestions for women seeking healthy relationships, noting those who are self-confident are less likely to fall for a charmer's manipulative wiles.
