101 Lies Men Tell Women -- And Why Women Believe Them by Dory, PhD Hollander PhD

‘I’ll call you.’ ‘I love you.’ I’ll be home in 20 minutes.’ ‘No, I don’t think your thighs are too big.’ ‘I’m going to leave my wife.’From first date deception to martial dishonesty to last-ditch efforts to evade detection, 101 Lies Men Tell Women exposes the extraordinary diverse lies that invade male/female relationships and destroy trust.What do men tend to lie about? Why do they feel the need to life? Dr. Dory Hollander offers rare insight into the most prevalent lies and the often startling reasons why men tell them.Based on the provocative findings of her research, Dr. Hollander also shows why women are more vulnerable to certain types of lies that others, while helping the reader to understand the dynamics of deception. Learn how men use the lies as a means of both attracting and distancing themselves from the women in their lives and how this affects the women who love them.Filled with highly amusing, as well as emotionally wrenching stories from the men and women in Dr. Hollander’s study, 101 Lies Men Tell Women captivates and enlightens with original quizzes and exercises for decoding – men’s words and actions.A self-defense manual for women who, until now, have had little understanding of, and even less protection against, the well-told lie.

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.
