In "Life Code: The New Rules for Winning in the Real World," six-time "New York Times" #1 best-selling author Dr. Phil McGraw abandons traditional thinking and tells you the ugly truth about the users, abusers, and overall "bad guys" we all have in our lives. He also reveals the secrets of how they think and how they get to and exploit you and those you love. You'll gain incredible insight into these negative people, which he refers to as BAITERs (Backstabbers, Abusers, Imposters, Takers, Exploiters, Reckless), and you'll gain the tools to protect yourself from their assaults. Dr. Phil's new book gives you the "Evil Eight" identifiers so you can see them coming from a mile away, as well as their "Secret Playbook," which contains the "Nefarious 15" tactics they use to exploit you and take what is yours mentally, physically, socially and professionally. "Life Code" then focuses on you and your playbook, which contains the "Sweet 16" tactics for winning in the real world.
Edgy, controversial and sometimes irreverent, Dr. Phil again abandons convention to prepare you to claim what you deserve and claim it now. You take flying lessons to learn to fly, swimming lessons to learn to swim, and singing lessons to learn to sing. So, why not take winning lessons to learn to win?

Rated 5 out of 5★ by A Must Read I'm only half way through the book, because I am following his suggestions. I already feel better about my future and current friendships. 03/03/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Life Code This is A EXCELLENT BOOK! I think this is one of the Best Books Dr. Phil has written. I have read many of them over the years. This book puts everything in perspective and is very much to the point! A lot of GREAT USEFUL INFORMATION I think would be helpful to anyone! The Society and World in which we now all live in IS AND HAS CHANGED! He is dead on about this! There are good examples given throughout the book, points out all of the research which went into writing and publishing a book such as this one. Never a dull moment. That is for sure. I would DEFINITLY recommend this book for everyone to read! It is an EXECELLENT READ! This book was worth every penny I spent to purchase it! I think you can't go wrong on this one! I know myself there have been things I had questioned and even wondered about. This Book Confirmed several thoughts I have had and at least I know for myself, it is not just me! I actually received some relief while discovering all of the (WHY'S) I have wondered and pondered over for quite some time! It is also very informative about the things you need to stay aware of going on around you as much as you possibly can. It prepares you in many ways so that you are not BLINDSIDED by People, Our Society we are all part of at this time, and so many things most of us would have never conceived we would ever observe, witness occurring, and be a part of A Society that we all are now a part of and living in! It is absolutely amazing how everything has so quickly evolved and continues to do so at a very rapid rate! I hope you all are given the opportunity to read this book because I believe you will be very surprised how well written this book really is. 04/17/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Great book just cannot put it down. 03/01/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by You have got to read this!! It is really good and you won't want to put it down. 06/17/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very Insightful! I would recommend this to everyone. It sure opens your eyes. 03/18/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by I am utilizing this book to "dissect" the past, a recent, very bad experience with a previous employer. They would not like to know that this book seemed to be written about them!I do wish to add that reading this book is a supplement of the professional counseling that I also sought to put this experience behind me.For whatever reason you decide to read this book, read the disclaimer (page before the Acknowledgements). Stay detached as you read this book with respect to taking that look at yourself (introspection) and the people around you.The book is well written and interesting reading. I will be reading this book more than once as it takes time to really "digest". 03/28/2013
