I'll call you.... I love you.... I'm getting a divorce.... No, I don't think your thighs are too big....
Lies, every one of them.
How can you tell when a man is lying? What do they tend to lie about? Why do they lie in the first place? These are the questions Dr. Hollander answers in this insightful exploration of the communication and perception differences between men and women. A veritable self-defense manual against the half-truths and outright fabrications men sometimes make, 101 Lies Men Tell Women draws on dozens of interviews with both sexes to reveal how men use lies as a means of both attracting and distancing themselves from the women in their lives. It is an invaluable guide to understanding the dynamics of deception, and the lessons it contains can empower any woman to take the reins of her relationship and lead it back to the path of honesty and true intimacy.
Author Biography: Dory Hollander is a licensed psychologist and the president of New Options, Inc., a consulting firm. She frequently conducts seminars on gender-related issues and divides her time between St. Louis, MO, and Arlington, VA.

Excellent book that helped me understand the hidden reasons '& excuses' that drive the most commonly told 'lies' by men to women, many of which I myself have been told. Intelligently written using serious language but not difficult to understand in layman's terms. Very therapeutic. And quite eye-opening. I especially like the fact that in addition to breaking down the meaning of the lies, the author also helps us to understand WHY WE BELIEVE THEM. We get to examine not only the other person's intentions & motives but also what we need to improve in ourselves to prevent being taken in by those same lies again the next time. Sometimes the way those lies are told are quite believable & we fall for it more than once. This book provides adequate ammunition to educate & brace ourselves against those insidious lies. How terribly sad it is that some wonderful things said by men ARE lies. This book is your defense.
