Terrifyingly accurate and enlightening. I am looking forward to listening again and working through the exercises presented with a group of friends.
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.
I listened based partially on a recommendation from a friend to another friend, and partially through my own curiosity. This is one of the most powerful books I've listened to and made me realize things about myself that I may not have realized without the book. Highly, highly recommended.
The book was bad, the material dated at best with some serious Freud undertones. The "steps" offer nothing in the way of real help. On top of which the deep voiced monotone narrator made this an excellent book to choose if you have insomnia.
This is not only a book of lessons, but a manual to achieve higher potential for a better life. Some of these lessons are very challenging to accept as reality, but this book dares the reader to change. I'm very optimistic about my growth from this point on. I just finished the book and I'll immediately start reading it again. Thank you Mr. Robert A. Glover :-)
