Uncover the Exploited Rules of the Game in Checkmate: The Games Men Play by Mark D. Crutcher

Checkmate: The Games Men Play will have you looking beyond your normal perceptions of reality and seeing the true meaning behind a man's actions and words.

    /24-7PressRelease/ - CARROLLTON, TX, November 18, 2005 - Have you ever imagined how life would be if women possessed a Geiger counter, or some device, for men that would generate a warning signal whenever a "player" was approaching? Unfortunately, there is no such device. But Mark Crutcher, in his Essence Magazine best-selling book, CHECKMATE: THE GAMES MEN PLAY (Literally Speaking Publishing; July 2005; ISBN 1929642504; $19.95 hardcover) tries to empower women by giving them something much more - first-hand knowledge about the games, tricks, and techniques men use to capture their hearts, souls, minds, and bodies when they have no intentions of being in a committed relationship.

On August 18, 2001 at 3:30 pm, Mark Crutcher, a reformed player, who finally found the woman of his dreams, stood at the alter waiting for a bride that never showed up. The humiliation and pain of that day is what finally led him to understand exactly what women go through when they are hurt by the callous and deliberate actions of players.

Without a doubt, this book is a wide angle view at how men have mastered the art of seduction when it comes to playing women. As a way to vindicate his past actions, Mark has fashioned himself as somewhat of a human alarm system in this book to give readers, women in particular, an uncensored, undiluted, and at times an unnerving analysis, of a player. He does this in hopes that it helps women to regain control of the relationship game and develop a strategic defense that will help them recapture a sense of self-preservation and self-esteem.
