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?

    "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.

    "Motivating"

    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.

    "Well worth listening!"

    Typical self help books bore me. But this book is realistic and very useful. I am resolved to changing my behaviour based in the guidance.

    "Not quite for me"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    In a way I can't fault the book and its content, if I was to change anything, I would ask for it to be less sales oriented, the first chapter I found myself gritting my teeth, thinking just get to it.


    If you’ve listened to books by Phil McGraw before, how does this one compare?

    I love Dr Phil's work and this is full of insightful stuff and great advice, unfortunately I should have read more about it as the last third is about parenting - and I am not a parent, so I hit the fast forward button a lot towards the end of the book.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The section on the games played and the defences were really good and shamefully I recognise that I have employed the negative games, so the chapter where Dr Phil told me off made me chuckle.


    Was Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code worth the listening time?

    For 2/3 rds of it yes, the last 1/3 I can't say. I tried to think of my experience with my parents, but no.

    Story
    "Inevitable Reading for Successful People"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to many friends because it was a co-worker and dear friend who recommended it to me. Besides, this book is the handbook of practical strategies for life's inevitable challenges and unfair deals.


    What other book might you compare Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code to and why?

    I would compare this book to Peck's "The Road Less Travelled" and some of John Maxwell's books, based on the emotional, spiritual, and holistic awakening the books inspire.


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

    Dr. Phil adds a personal touch. His instructive voice and encouraging words incite an awareness of the evil and adversary in our world and how equipped we should become to adequately deal with them.


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

    Yes and no. I was curious to hear similar experiences and how to conquer them and other experiences and how to overcome them. However, books as such are copious and cannot be digested in one sitting or course.


    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

    "Wow---Life Changing"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend to a friend, and have, because if you are or have been prey for a baitor, it gives words and information on how to stand up for yourself and be heard. I also appreciated the verbage for a conversation with a friend who is talking about you. Wow-Soooo Useful!!!!!


    What other book might you compare Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code to and why?

    I would also recommend "Shark and a Goldfish," by Jon Gordon


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

    Dr. Phil speaking brings his seriousness to each situation. I enjoyed it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me laugh and cry about so many years I have been willing to listen to lies from a baitor thinking it was my fault and there was something wrong with me. I love that I have a voice and will be more cautious from now on in future relationships.


    Any additional comments?

    I love it, and will listen/read and relisten/reread this book many, many times. I want to get this so that my life will be different. Thank you Dr. Phil...I am truly grateful.

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

    I think as readers we need both versions, the audio to listen to over and over until we get it. The print form allows us to mark and grow with our book marks.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code?

    Understanding that things I have thought for YEARS someone was finally saying it.


    Have you listened to any of Phil McGraw’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first but depending on the topics it might not be my last because I do enjoy his TV talk show


    What insight do you think you’ll apply from Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code?

    Its ok for me to not give people the benefit of the doubt and that it's ok to truly see people for what they are.

    Story
    "Dr. Phil's EGO Code"
    What would have made Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code better?

    While his love of himself grates on me, I saw Dr. Phil on OWN doing a Lifeclass about this book. I enjoyed the points he shared and decided to buy the book here. I may have to return this title if he doesn't stop what he starts in the first 5 minutes of listening. You get to hear how amazing HIS career has been and how terrific HIS success in life is. They you have to hear about HIS wonderful marriage and HIS two amazingly successful sons. HELLO? PAGING PHIL MCGRAW... THIS BOOK ISN'T ABOUT HOW WONDERFUL YOU THINK YOU ARE.


    If you’ve listened to books by Phil McGraw before, how does this one compare?

    I have not because of this very fear, that McGraw would make the entire book like his television appearances, about himself and his love for himself.


    What didn’t you like about Phil McGraw’s performance?

    Self-Centered and annoying. He actually works for Oprah Winfrey still and she has a hand in pretty much any "product" with his name. While she can have flashes of self importance it is amazing to me she hasn't sat him down and told him to take the spotlight off himself and shine it on HIS AUDIENCE.


    What character would you cut from Dr. Phil McGraw: Life Code?

    Dr. Phil McGraw.


    Any additional comments?

    I feel this book HAS good information in it but so far it buried so far under McGraw's self congratulatory tone it is grating.
