    "Best Book on this Topic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have read LOTS of books on this subject and, frankly, didn't expect much from such a short book, but it has the MOST relevant and comprehensive description and plan of action for women involved with extremely difficult men. I assumed that I would find her other title, _Self-Centered and Narcissistic Men_, but this was the one that shed NEW LIGHT on a situation I have been tirelessly researching for several years.


    Any additional comments?

    I tried these titles because they were inexpensive, but I didn't expect much. I was VERY pleasantly surprised & intend to buy others.

    Story
    "Excellent Book"
    What made the experience of listening to Controlling and Manipulative Men the most enjoyable?

    Dr. Lyn speaks as though she is talking directly to me, and she is my best friend.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Controlling and Manipulative Men?

    Learning about the Red Flags.


    What does Lyn Kelley bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked hearing her talk in her own words.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    How to spot manipulation right away!


    Any additional comments?

    I have spent a lot of time looking for a resource that would help me understand what the heck was going on in my relationship. The most frustrating thing was knowing something was wrong but not being able to articulate it because the behavior I was dealing with was so covert. This book validates my experience and helps me understand what I have been dealing with. It also helped me to see some of my own flaws (which I know I have but I did not realize how certain flaws contribute this issue). I am not finished with the book but I am so grateful for what I have heard so far that I just had to share this in case it may help someone else who is involved with a manipulative person. Read this, it will help you get perspective on what's really going on.

    "I can see clearly now"

    Wow! This book has not only confirmed my fears, it has helped me begin to get past them. I only wish I had read this 20 years ago.

    "Insightful plus Solutions"

    I had a surprising negative experience with an ex that re-opened old wounds. In the throws of shock & disbelief that the reason for our divorce 10+ years ago had actually happened again, I was attracted to this title. I listened to it as much as possible during the next week & found relief. I got an overview of my situation & healthy options. This book helped me bounce back quicker & communicate more clearly with connected children & extended family members.
