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.
I think it did a reasonably good job given the material
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.
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!
No, absolutely not.
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.
Some less monotone.
Amazement at how boring it was and obvious.
Avoid at all costs.
I have nothing to offer anyone except my own confusion.
Wake up call
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.
No, but more because of the numerous activities recommended by the author that I would stop listening in order to perform.
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.
Yes I would. It's good to go over material so it sinks in.
Book gives ways to change and helps you be aware of what you are doing.
All insights are practical and helpful. I recommend this book for anyone who is trying to break free of being a nice guy!!!!
Would have liked more examples, Should listen to it twice worth the time spent on the treadmill
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!
I am a 34-year old litigator, father of three young sons. I listen to a lot of business books, suspense/thrillers, bios, and history.
If you have any traits of a people pleaser, you need to read this book. This is a truly remarkable work!
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.
