Conventional wisdom says that women are the manipulative ones - but tell that to the thousands of desperate women suffering at the hands of a manipulative man. Men can be just as sneaky, passive-aggressive, needy, underhanded, whiny, guilt-inducing and emotionally demanding as women are accused of being - and perhaps more so! As any woman in love with a manipulative man can tell you, it's not easy to get past his charm and your guilt to a place where you can see your relationship for what it is - out of balance, extraordinarily stressful, emotionally exhausting and potentially dangerous. This book is a groundbreaking prescription for dealing with the manipulative men in your life by using: tests to help women decide if they are involved with mama's boys, narcissists, sociopaths or even psychopaths; techniques for defining and setting boundaries with their men; and tools to help women improve their relationships with manipulative men. In "The Manipulative Man", acclaimed psychotherapist Dr. Dorothy McCoy shows readers how to identify the type of manipulative man they're involved with, deal with the issues his behaviour provokes and ultimately, salvage the relationship - or move on.
