    Story
    "Wouldn't recommend"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I can't say, It's supposed to be a self help book on the "Nice Guy Syndrome", however, while the book has some interesting ideas, the author makes sweeping generalizations and paints these "nice guys" with a very broad brush.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert A. Glover again?

    Probably not.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Robert O'Keefe’s performances?

    I think it did a reasonably good job given the material


    Any additional comments?

    The only research appears to be from the authors own experience and anecdotes from his "nice guy" mens group. Maybe he needs a bigger sampling and some real science to support his hypothesis.

    Story
    "This should be on most guys reading lists"

    I've been doing most of this for years. I was, very much, Mr. Nice Guy and a complete jerk. I do appreciate the way he has created a systematic way for addressing the issues!

    Story
    "Book can be summed up with "don't be a wimp""
    Would you try another book from Robert A. Glover and/or Robert O'Keefe?

    No, absolutely not.


    What was most disappointing about Robert A. Glover’s story?

    The "no s**t, Sherlock" aspects of it. Long-winded, has one central point which is "don't be such a wimp." You can't really elaborate for hours on that subject.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Robert O'Keefe?

    Some less monotone.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Amazement at how boring it was and obvious.


    Any additional comments?

    Avoid at all costs.

    Story
    "Insightful and hit me (ahem..) head on"
    If you could sum up No More Mr. Nice Guy! in three words, what would they be?

    Wake up call


    What did you like best about this story?

    In a few hours of listening I was able to gain substantial insight into how other people view my own actions and why I often fail to receive the reaction I was anticipating from other people in my life.


    Which character – as performed by Robert O'Keefe – was your favorite?

    Not applicable.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, but more because of the numerous activities recommended by the author that I would stop listening in order to perform.

    Story
    "Eye Opening Book"
    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to lots of self-improvement books. The title may as well been named “My Life Story”. It has opened my eyes like no other book. Being in the mix of it all, I had never seen myself in this light. It’s going to take some time to get rid of my old habits, but I can easily see them now. It has made me aware of these issues; I see Nice Guys, everywhere now. It is an epidemic and every man should read this book. I am a more confident man for it and I have a true plan for success now.

    The book explains how our up-bringing has creates skewed views of what a man should be. No fault of the women in our lives, they meant well, but they do not know what it is to be man. It explains how it’s ok to be a man and opens our eyes to skewed perception of what it is to be a man and how it’s ok to have needs and have those needs satisfied.

    The book is not about becoming a jerk but becoming a more powerful man and stop being a whining and manipulated man and be certain to your desires in sex, career and life.

    "Must read for every man"
    What did you love best about No More Mr. Nice Guy!?

    It is a much needed lesson on the aftermath of the feminist revolution and why it's ok for men to be men. Every man will take something different and valuable away from reading this book. The "nice guy" is the meanest, most self destructive guy of all!

    Story
    "Don't 'think' you know how someone else will react"

    If you are in a place, like me, that you needed to hear a good lesson about dealing with your past effecting your future this book is for you.

    The big lesson is don't expect anyone to act as you expect. Put away your preconceived notions and exceptions of OTHERS and live your life.

    Too much of your past has made you form am unreal expectation of the future so live your life the way you want to.
