The second book in this important series discusses what to do when nasty men try to use guilt, manipulation, and "reason" to get their way, and differentiates truly nasty behavior from everyday frustrations that arise between men and women. In Nasty Men, Carter defines several "nasty types," including:
- The verbal battererwho uses intimate secrets as ammunition to attack the self-esteem of others
- The Don Juanwhose charming attentiveness conceals a chronically deceitful personality
- The liarwho says one thing in front of loved ones but something else behind their backs
- The Cro-Magnon manwhose attitude turns relationships into battlegrounds
Everyone knows a person who has been hurt, betrayed, or degraded by nasty individuals or has experienced it themselves. In three books, Jay Carter, Psy. D., shows readers how to stop this cycle of overt and covert abuse, without resorting to nasty tactics. Now for the first time, this series is released together to cover all areas of dealing with difficult people. With straight-talking advice, real-life anecdotes, and psychology that makes sense, Carter explains how to handle and stop painful behavior that harms both the perpetrator and the victim.

Excellent book showing personalities and misunderstandings. Sometimes men are just being men, and then there are men that you wouldn't want your sister to marry. Saves a lot of grief.
