101 Lies Men Tell Women : And Why Women Believe Them
'I'll call you.' 'I love you.' I'll be home in 20 minutes.' 'No, I don't think your thighs are too big.' 'I'm going to leave my wife.'From first date deception to martial dishonesty to last-ditch efforts to evade detection, 101 Lies Men Tell Women exposes the extraordinary diverse lies that invade male/female relationships and destroy trust.What do men tend to lie about? Why do they feel the need to life? Dr. Dory Hollander offers rare insight into the most prevalent lies and the often startling reasons why men tell them.Based on the provocative findings of her research, Dr. Hollander also shows why women are more vulnerable to certain types of lies that others, while helping the reader to understand the dynamics of deception. Learn how men use the lies as a means of both attracting and distancing themselves from the women in their lives and how this affects the women who love them.Filled with highly amusing, as well as emotionally wrenching stories from the men and women in Dr. Hollander's study, 101 Lies Men Tell Women captivates and enlightens with original quizzes and exercises for decoding - men's words and actions.A self-defense manual for women who, until now, have had little understanding of, and even less protection against, the well-told lie.
