A Hardcore Education On Men With Power

Understanding Men With Power is a book Mark Martiak, wealth advisor, calls “a riveting read about men in Hollywood who call the shots, and seen first-hand from the front row by a savvy woman. Mercedes takes us for a ride and shares life lessons right out of central casting. For men who want to relate, to women who need to deal with men on all levels, this is a chronicle you won't want to pass-up.” A move from New York City to Los Angeles becomes a hard-core education on men with power. In this eye-opening journey I discover how far men with power will go to get what they want. My dealings with well-known men from all over the world and all walks of life are detailed. Being around them taught me they are not that hard to figure out. And, of course, what applies to men with power also applies to regular men as well so the readership is broad. Because of my association with men of power I have focused on this particular group of men. The compilation became this book. With each story (chapter) there is a lesson at the end. Women have been told time and time again what to do or what rules to follow to get and keep a man. By reading about actual incidents we can get a better understanding of how men think and how they behave in certain situations. What better way than reading first-hand accounts? Women will be able to see for themselves what happens when one behaves a certain way with men. It's better to show than to tell. This book is showing women, not telling women, the causes and effects of our treatment of men. This book is a perfect blend of Sex and the City and Entourage.
