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?

Dr. Phil, himself. I'm a huge fan and I love his upfront, matter of fact approach to problems & solutions.
Dr. Phil, of course!
I've read other books, but this is the first time listening to Dr. Phil on audiobook.
I had quite a few "a-ha" moments and connected some dots.
Dr. Phil for president!!!
I liked his Texas charm and spin on things, but a lot of the book felt like it was added after he wrote the meat and potatoes of the book. That being said, the section on how to educate our children to spot and stay clear from baiters alone makes this book worth reading. I also liked how he talks about the constant negotiation of marriage and other relationships.
Please contact me if you find Stephen King, Catherine Cookson, Joe Hill, any good horror books.
Yes. I love listening to his voice, he is a fantastic reader.
definitely.ANd I did!
Thank you Dr. Phil. For caring so much about others. You are truly gifted. I wish there was a Dr. Phil when I was growing up.
If, as an Australian, you can get past the Americanisms, this is a great book with great advice. Really changed my thinking. Dr Phil is very easy to listen to. I went and bought the printed copy too.
Don't assume we are dumb blonds
His distrust of everyone, even the reader
Sensationalism to sell books and elevate his callus view of people
Lost a little of my admiration of him
I love Dr. Phil and I don't get tired of reading / listening to his books. However, this one in particular doesn't get to point until half way through, I was hoping the content would be exposed in a more concise way.
This one is not as focused and rambles a little bit too much before getting to the point for my taste
I love the way Dr. Phil reads his books, he keeps you hooked and is the best reader for his own books.
Say something about yourself!
yes I do
Phil is so matter of fact and I like that about, It came through in the book.
I like the way he break life down to codes to follow and indentify player to look for.
Yes, I would listen again to Life Code because Dr. Phil has written about so many important points. Listening twice for me is essential to understanding the advice fully.
I valued Dr. Phil sharing his own personal experiences with "baiters". I could easily relate and therefore use the information for myself.
I'm On To Your Game, Buddy. (j/k, not a movie type of book, really.)
Love having an audible book. I will definitely buy more.
Yes, although I don't own a print version yet.
It was straight to the point...realistic expectations. Fantastic advice. OH and he actually reads the book to you, how cool is that.
to many to list.
NECESSARY - REVEALING - CURRENT
The depth of professional insight into the things that to us, would just be named: evil, or wrong doing.
The revealing moment in which Dr. Phil explains the commonalities of people who manipulate others.
If you have that good going about life nature, and you feel like you rather see the good in people, if you love your life THINK AGAIN, better yet, LISTEN TO THIS AUDIO.
