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.
well written and narrated. Some of the things the author attributes to Nice Guys seem to be basic human conditions. but a lot did make sense and ring true in my own life. very interesting. I must reread to gain more understanding.
This is an exceptionally insightful text. Be careful - it is so powerful that if it is not read with care, you might react to the text instead of growing and developing because of the text. I cannot recommend this book highly enough.
Is someone who's a Mr. nice guy. Reading this book in Layton to me. Didn't expected, one of the more profound self-help readings I've ever had. Two weeks out and I'm already amazed at how many things of changed. And, I found it just in time. Just when I needed.
I have needed this book for the last 15 years. I'm glad that I found it and it literally has changed my life forever. I am a new man with a better life ahead of me
Good advice and good program for self diagnosed recovering "nice guys". Not entirely confident of the claims in this book, many lack scientific support and are a matter of the authors personal opinions. Universal truths that I took took from this book include the importance of self care; placing one self first (diminishing dishonesty and covertness in relationships and interactions); clear direct communication; addressing the psychodynamic roots of "nice guy"/cowardice behaviour to become a more "whole" guy. Great book.
