Countless women have had the frustrating experience of loving a man who is oblivious to them, while he was swept up in the drama of loving a bad girl instead. Dr. Lieberman has interviewed over one hundred such men and shares their real-life stories in intimate detail, revealing what the attraction was, how far they went to 'catch' the bad girl, and what impact the experience had on their lives. Similar in format to her classic Bad Boys, 12 different types of Bad Girls are profiled: Gold-digger, Addict, Sex Siren, Sexual Withholder, Married Woman on the Prowl, Commitment-Phobe, Husband Hunter and Trapper, Husband Stealer, Damsel in Distress, Cougar, Ball-Buster, and Bad Girl Scorned. The reader will learn what makes these women tick and why otherwise smart and successful men fall head over heels for them, losing their savings, self-respect and sanity in the process. Famous bad girls, from history to headlines, and real life to reel life, illustrate each of the different types - including Angelina Jolie, Samantha from Sex and the City, Britney Spears, Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, Oksana, and many more. Bad girls are heartbreakers - a paradox of insecurity and ruthlessness, deprivation and entitlement, emptiness and chaos. This book will appeal to women who want to learn the secrets hidden in the bad girl book of spells, without truly becoming 'bad' themselves, and to men who are licking their wounds.
