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 4.7 out of 5★ by 32reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by I have heard a lot of good things about Dr Phil's book and decided to read it. 03/21/2013
Rated 3 out of 5★ by Online Purchase I haven't read my copy of the Life Code book yet, just picked it up from the store today. The online order copy was for a friend. One thing I would like to mention that Walmart could do better, is to send a reply email after the product has been shipped. I had to call my friend to see if she got her birthday present, which was a little like begging for a Thank You, yet I wanted to make sure she got my order.Thank you,Anne Register 06/14/2013
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
