I have listened to a lot of personal and professional self-improvement books. Unlike all of the others combined, this one has changed my paradigm - and I am a happier, stronger, healthier, and more confident man for it.
Didn't want to admit that I had a problem with being nice, but this nailed the reasons why I was sacrificing myself. Hard lesson and being selfish goes against my core, but ultimately helpful!
For many nice guys, it's difficult to hear the truth, because the truth brings to light some of the things that you want to avoid.
While listening to this book, I was tempted to stop listening because it brought to light so many of the characteristics and traits I've personally held sacred.
The book is a great introduction to to some of the faults of trying to be a "nice guy" but it is by no means a cure all. I believe that if you couple the teachings in this book with the exercises and some other books and methods, you'll truly be able to experience what the book offers.
Well done Dr Glover!
The only flaw was they did not give the website at the end of the book.
There needs to be a sequel to transition from nice guy to manhood.
This book was more geared towards guys with a severe, very severe issue of niceness.
Not your typical self-help book, as this book is actually helpful and very entertaining. So entertaining I couldn't stop listening. I'm sure many of you, like me, are sick of the self-help book cliché of containing little help and a lot of long, drawn-out, unrealistically boring stories that are used specifically to prove the point the author's point, so specifically they seem almost fake if not completely. Not this book. It gets straight to the point with useful advice. I recommend this book for everyone; men, women, even people who aren't suffering from the issues the book will help you get over, its that entertaining. But besides from being enjoyable to read, reading his book was very helpful in tackling some of the issues I was having with being a "nice guy".
