Not only did it clarify my own 14 year marriage to a manipulator (and didn't know how to "label" it)..I now know how to choose a better mate for me...even IF he is a keeper manipulator...
There are different types of manipulation described in the book,...worksheets to help you identify your mates patterns as well as what you expect...how to cope, or how to throw in "the towel"..AWESOME!

Dr Dorothy's take in 'The Manipulative Man' is a compelling read. The tests are simple but effective the techniques she users an eye opener to the lay man or woman and the tools she gives to improve relationships are enlightening! Well done Dr D! Long may the books be available and you be in practice to help where help is so desperately needed.

"The Manipulative Man" could be used as a primer for younger women who haven't already recognized unscrupulous behavior. For women like me, who married manipulative men with disastrous results, it was both enlightening as well as a reminder of the red flags I should have seen. For me, the last section on why women choose such men was eye-opening. And for women everywhere who assume that "that's just the way men are," there is hope in this book by showing us ways to both recognize and avoid such dishonest conduct. It's affirmation for those of us who always thought we could have or should have done it better. I appreciate the way this book was organized, with tests at the end of each chapter and I especially liked all the test cases cited in Dr. McCoy's personal practice. I would recommend for women who keep asking themselves why they always end up with the same kind of man, or better, for women who intentionally choose a "different" man who ultimately reveals the same behaviors. As I find myself mid-life dating, I will keep this book handy as reference material. Well done. Jacqueline Gum, author "Confessions of a Corporate Slut"Was this review helpful?
