With more than 100,000 copies in print, Living with the Passive-Aggressive Man draws on case histories from clinical psychologist Scott Wetzler’s practice to help you identify the destructive behavior, the root causes and motivations, and solutions.
Do you know one of these men?
The catch-me-if-you-can lover...
Phil’s romantic and passionate one minute, distant and cold the next.
The deviously manipulative coworker or boss...
Jack denies resenting Nora’s rapid rise in the company, but when they’re assigned to work together on a project, he undermines her.
The obstructionist, procrastinating husband...
Bob keeps telling his wife he’ll finish the painting job he began years ago, but he never seems to get around to it.
These are all classic examples of the passive-aggressive man. This personality syndrome—in which hostility wears a mask of passivity—is currently the number one source of men’s problems in relationships and on the job. In Living with the Passive-Aggressive Man, Scott Wetzler draws upon numerous case histories from his own practice to explain how and why the passive-aggressive man thinks, feels, and acts the way he does. Dr. Wetzler also offers advice on:
• How to avoid playing victim, manager, or rescuer to the “P-A”
• How to get his anger and fear into the open
• How to help the “P-A” become a better lover, husband, and father
• How to survive passive-aggressive game playing on the job
Living with a man’s passive aggression can be an emotional seesaw ride. But armed with this book, you can avoid the bumpy landings.
Explores the ways that men become passive-aggressive.
If I had only known that this type of person actually exists 1 1/2 years ago! I'd like to think of my self as an educated and down-to-earth person who gets things in life. Apparently the man who was in my life had me twisted, turned and upside down. I had no idea what was actually happening! I always thought it was me and I was the one who needed to make a change. Let me tell you this type of person will make you not well, both physically, mentally and emotionally. I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to find this book to realize it wasn't all me. This type of man is dangerous and toxic. Unfortunately, the female will suffer and the man will continue to do his thing. It is sad but also eye-opening and great to realize I wasn't all that bad after all. Ps- therapy is highly recommended. :)
I missed something
I can’t believe I spent $12.99 for 33 pages. I think something is wrong here. I was told to read this book by a coworker and she said the book was 200+ pages. Why did I only get 33 pages and paid 12.99. I want a refund.
This book was a life changer for me. I never understood exactly what P-A was. Once reading the book I understood why family members act the way they do. Would recommend highly.
