THE SCRIPT: The 100% Absolutely Predictable Things Men Do When They Cheat by Elizabeth Landers and Vicky Mainzer is the first book to alert women to the early, almost unremarkable signs that point to a cheating husband or boyfriend – the words or actions that seem to be part of every day life, but could mean something more.
Divided into two parts – Before He Leaves and After He Leaves – THE SCRIPT presents the red flags women should look for, explaining why it’s so important to act early if you want to turn the tide of disaster and save your relationship.
THE SCRIPT opens by revealing the ten early warning signs that a man is cheating – or is planning to soon. The authors, Elizabeth and Vicky, know that what a man says and does before he leaves will always be taken straight from the Script – from his constant criticism, to making it seem that you’re the one who’s crazy, to saying things like, “You just don’t understand me.” But Elizabeth and Vicky are on to his act – and now you are, too. They explain what his real motivation is in these early stages, and how it’s possible to interrupt the Script.
The second part of THE SCRIPT includes the lies he will tell after he leaves, when he says things like, “You’ll be better off without me,” and, “I’m going to take care of you.” In this part of THE SCRIPT, Elizabeth and Vicky explain what you need to know to protect yourself when you are most vulnerable – from how to make sure your finances are safeguarded to why it’s so important to get a lawyer.
From beginning to end, Elizabeth and Vicky are there to reassure you that, despite what you may think – and what he’s telling you – you are not alone. Personal stories throughout the book show, again and again, that every man follows the same pattern – sometimes word for word – and that every woman goes through the same feelings. But with THE SCRIPT, Elizabeth and Vicky give you the knowledge and tools you need to stay ahead of his game.
