Publisher's Summary

The rules for living in the real world have changed, because the world we live in has changed. Much of the conventional wisdom the last generation has passed on just doesn't apply like it once did. If you want to win, and win big, and, more importantly, keep what you work so hard for, you need a crystal-clear view of how the real world works - not how you wish it worked, but how it actually works.

In Life Code: The New Rules for Winning in the Real World, six-time New York Times number-one 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 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?

    "Not a fan of Dr. Phil, but this book rocks!"
    Where does Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best. It pains me to admit that, given my dislike of Dr. Phil.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Very practical advice, particularly for those who might not have learned the skills needed to stand up for themselves or to handle bullies, even as adults.


    What about Phil McGraw’s performance did you like?

    Ugh, that man's voice! Not a fan, but the content was so great it was easy to ignore. I understand what a celebrity author who makes a living talking would want to read his own book, but at times it felt a little like listening to his show. With no guests.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Gave me a whole new perspective on how to handle difficult people, how to prevent being scammed, and how to take control of areas of my life I had previously had difficulty with.


    Any additional comments?

    Even if you're not a Dr. Phil fan (I'm not!), this book is well worth the read. He even explains his methodology which, as a fellow researcher, is actually pretty impressive.

    Story
    "Tell-it-like-it-is Phil."

    This book really speaks in a language anybody can understand. He rarely talks about himself and when he does, it's to back up his points and his experience with narcissists or "BAITER's" and helps the reader recognize those traits and behavioral patterns so that those people can be spotted and avoided.
    Being a fan of Dr Phil is a benefit to reading this book and even if you're not, who else is going to explain the real world then a real person?
    I bought the paperback first and loved it so much, I bought the audio book so I can listen to it over and over until Evey detail sinks in and I can have stronger vigilance towards the jerks that try to put me and my family down.
    A definite must read.

    "not what I expected"

    I was really disappointed by this book. I expected the no nonsense advice I hear from Dr Phil every time I watch his show but this book is very sinicle and almost mean. Maybe I should have read more but I didn't get past the first two chapters.

    "Good reading"

    I read some reviews who said that it's all about himself so that I almost didn't buy it - I don't see it though, and I am glad that I got it. Of course, he uses examples of himself because that's how he learned and progressed. I like especially the chapter on the evil eight as I had hunches about the character of those people which have now put into words. I have always liked his clear language of not beating around the bush. I am learning from his book and am glad he wrote it.

    "Great advice."

    Excellent discussion, with common sense advice, many good examples. I agree this book is to be listened to several times, because it's clear we need to duo better.

    Story
    "Dr. Phil is the BOSS!!!"

    This book/audiobook is LIFE CHANGING. Not only has it opened my eyes and detailed/defined the "doormat" subconscious reality I have been dealing with/accepting my whole life (unfortunately), but I now have a much more clear understanding as to why it has and is still happening. In all honesty, I used to think that Dr. Phil was a "Crock-O-Crap" and fake doctor (which was most likely driven by the negative "MSM" I have witnessed against him), but after listening to his book I have gained an astronomical amount of respect for him. If you are fed up with how others are affecting your life and want to learn how to combat/remove/deal with such people, then this is the book to read/listen to. I wish I could give it more than 5 stars (it deserves a million). Thank you Dr. Phil (aka Dr. Bossman!).

    "okay - but sad awareness"

    My director recommended I read this book because I was deceived by one of my direct reports. It makes me sad how deceptive individuals can be and I feel I am more aware now. However, not sure if I am more aware based on my real-life experience or because of this book.
