16 awesome tactics to win in the real world.
In the first portion of the book, Dr. Phil identifies these so called bad guys and how we can detect and overcome them. It is immediately discernible, to anyone with some notion of psychology, that “the bad guys” he refers to are individuals with very specific personality disorders, but he refrains from labeling them that. He sort of lumps all of the personality types into one type of person that you really want to avoid. Dr. Phil shares clues about how to detect those types and how to act once you know you are facing on of them.
Dr. Phil obliges his readers to understand that there are genuinely evil people in the world. Those who want to hurt you and your loved ones. Dr. Phil does clarify, of course, that not every one of these types wants to abuse and kill you. Some only want money, or your spouse. The point of the matter is these “bad guys” do not have a capacity for empathy. They could care less about what hurts you and you need to know that these people are out there. Dr. Phil details how he made an inventory of all those who had hurt him. He would place pieces of paper on his walls and would then use a marker to color and describe the strategy his aggressor used and how they managed to get Dr. Phil to lower his guard. Once the “bad guy analysis” was carried out, Dr. Phil identified a clear set of tip offs that should have been a red flag.
This book is about teaching you those red flags.
In the second portion of Life Code are the new rules to win in the world. Dr. Phil explains in absolute detail how you can stop being an easy mark, and how to behave whenever engaged in a heated discussion. He provides helpful tips for negotiating and some rules for upbringing children in our current world.
The best part of this book though, is the real-life examples shared. Everyone could benefit from reading this book.
