Unless you are a staunch feminist or a male chauvinist, you'll have to agree that both women and men play mind games. Yet due to the propaganda in the media, especially on the big screen, women are portrayed as the only ones that are good at playing mind games - especially in regards to playing mind games with men. However, if you believe this you are completely mistaken. Men are also equally as good when it comes to playing mind games, especially in regards to playing mind games with women. Mind games involve manipulation. These so-called manipulations, or mind games, can be intentional or not. They can be as complex and varied as men themselves. Some of the main reasons for mind games include disinterest, lack of confidence, insecurity, boredom, fear of commitment, and need for control.
In her book, entitled The Mind Games Men Play with Women, author Tonya Love examines these aforementioned reasons in detail using examples from everyday life. Then she offers suggestions for how to deal with each situation.
Whether you are a man or a woman, it's helpful to know what you're up against when it comes to life and love. The purpose of this book is to bring these mind games to your attention so that you can learn to communicate more effectively, and to give you a better idea of whether you should stay or go when it comes to pursuing a relationship.
Kinda boring. Said basic things most people already know. At least it was a quick book.

Tonya has learned a ton from our dear school, experience. But I’m sure she picked up a thing or two from a good book or two. All of this drama can be avoided if we just trusted in the one who created us. His manual is found in Holy Scripture, starting from the sermon on the mount, into the Gospels, onto the epistles, leading to the Torah, …, as well as the rest of sacred literature. His recommendation is arranged marriages, but not forced. See Ex 22:16,17; Deut 22:13-30; 1Tim 2:8-15. Consider books by Henry Cloud, John Townsend as well but keep in mind that these are secular teachings with some scripture sprinkled in. Viz they are highly leavened bread.
Listen to the book twice already within the first week I bought it, and I plan to listen to it again
Would you listen to The Mind Games Men Play with Women again? Why?
I sure would. I will tell you this it very informative. Guys do play a lot of games and this audio book brought that to light.
What other book might you compare The Mind Games Men Play with Women to and why?
I don't think I have ever read any other book that is similar to this.
What about Jennifer Howe’s performance did you like?
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
The fact that if a guy wants to play the field he will continue to move on to the next best thing. Men think with their penis unless they have true feelings for the person.
Any additional comments?
No. Again the book is right on point. It definitely brought behaviors and attitudes to the fore front. Very helpful to women as i am sure there are still a lot of women being played by men.
