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?

Life Code is excellent

Would you consider the audio edition of Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code to be better than the print version?

Listening to the audio of Dr Phil McGraw was really interesting, it felt like he was in the same room, just talking to me and putting his point across.

What did you like best about this story?

The truthfulness of Dr Phil McGraw words and examples.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed listening to the first part which outlines what type of person we sometimes deal with whether it be in the office or at home.

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

It has been a long time since I've actually listened to an audio and actually agreed with the writer. This is a five star book.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to those people who been treated badly whether at work or at home and feel it was their fault. This book will change your mind.

I wouldn't say I have been given the answers I would be looking for but I have been given the tools an motivation for the next chapter in my life.

Dr Phil did that for me many years ago and I've already started to take control again. This has reminded me that I really do have the answers all I needed to do was visualise what success would look like for me and write down the steps to get there.

Would you be willing to try another one of Phil McGraw’s performances?


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?


Any additional comments?

Far too long was spent ( a whole chapter I think) on telling you what he was going to tell you and how important what he was going to impart was. I realise that this is part of the training model of Tell em what you are going to em, tell em, and then tell em what you told them. But I found it a annoying
