Another bit from LJ, 11-15-05, p. 85:

Heyn, Dalma. Drama Kings: The Men Who Drive Strong Women Crazy. Rodale. Nov. 2005. c.256 p. ISBN: 1-57954-888-1. $23.95. Self-Help.
"Best known for her two previous books, The Erotic Silence of the American Wife and Marriage Shock, Heyn is back with another provocative look at a rising trend--the coupling of high-achieving women with weaker men who are alternately drawn to the woman's strength and seeking to sabotage it. Heyn calls these men 'drama kings' because they tend to sweep women off their feet--see Heathcliff, Rhett Butler, or Big in Sex & the City--but can't share power or the intimacy that true love requires. Women are shown how to extricate themselves from these types and build new, fulfilling bonds with their bad experiences. Heyn has traversed new self-help turf; her latest will prove popular wherever there are strong women. Recommended for most libs."
