“The Proprietor” is nearly a word-for-word description of the close encounter of the psychotic kind I had last year with the drama king who nearly murdered me. If only
I had read Drama Kings: The Men Who Drive Strong Women Crazy sooner.
Heyn provides a potentially lifesaving guide to what to look for and RUN from for all women who are in or are looking for a relationship. She paints portraits of the five drama-king types: the visitor, the proprietor, the easygoing guy, the hit-and-run lover, and the feeling impaired guy. The women’s stories help illustrate the modus operandi of each type and range from obsessive jealousy over imagined flirtations to abrupt abandonment of women who are in the middle of a personal crisis.
One of the most vital points is the admonition to stop trivializing this behavior as just a “can’t live with them, can’t live without them,” boys-will-be-boys occurrence. This book gives women the information and ammunition to separate the wheat from the chaff and lets us know that we deserve more than chaff. Women, unite! Read this book and demand and get what you deserve in a relationship. Then thank Dalma Heyn profusely, for she has written a book for women of all ages and stages of life.
