The Men Who Drive Strong Women Crazy
In this field guide to twenty-first century dating, Dalma Heyn gives women the tools they need to find the partners they want
Why are so many strong, vibrant women going out with men who sabotage their strength and vibrancy? In her third book, bestselling author and psychotherapist Dalma Heyn provides the roadmap to lovers she calls “drama kings,” men who, still stuck in the man-centric culture of the twentieth century, are emotionally unavailable to these twenty-first century women. Drawing on first-person interviews and case stories of real relationships, Heyn helps women identify the men likely to derail relationships, confront their own expectations about love and relationships, and negotiate the minefields of today’s dating world—so that they never again have to choose between having love and staying strong. This ebook features a new introduction by Dalma Heyn and an illustrated biography including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

“Strong women, beware. You are more susceptible than most to the advances of the so-called ‘drama kings’—men for whom relationships always devolve into melodrama and rob the strength of the women involved. . . . [Heyn] presents a compelling portrait of the five types of drama kings—toxic personalities all.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Ms. Heyn has a keen nose for social change. . . . She has detected a plague of drama kings and records their pernicious attributes so that wary women can spot them in time and bar the door.” —The New York Times
