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!
I like brevity, so I will just say that this book truly changed my life in every way. I have never read a self help book that touched so close to home. Amazing book that I have already listened to twice and plan to buy a paper copy. This is more of a manual for life than a book to be read, have a few good ideas taken out, and then forgotten.
If you can't appreciate this book, you're probably not a Nice Guy. from the first few paragraphs I started realizing that nearly all of my issues I've known about for years stem from this single issue, nice guy syndrome. this book confronts every problem nice guys face with great detail and often brutal honesty. Some parts were hard for me to even listen to but I've been needing to here these things all my life. Before even finishing this book I had already become better at resolving issues and even demanded and received a raise at work that I would never have gotten other wise. I still have a lot to work on but my progression is steady. I'm in my mid 20's and single. Honestly I picked this up initially trying to get more help in picking up women other books and pick up programs I've tried have suggested I read this. If picking up women is your only goal, don't bother. This book is worth so much more than that. Though I believe this is going to eventually help me in that department by simply becoming a more actractive man. I highly recommend this to anyone who already knows they are in deed a Nice Guy. I've seen a few reviews claiming there wasn't enough activities suggested in this book to help with changing the behaviors described. They obviously didn't read the same book because there are literally about 50 of them and most are relatively easy to implement. Bottom line: I've found this book immensely insightful and helpful even just within weeks of starting it. I'm sure it will be a great tool in my future success. Many thanks to the author.
Not great writing. Very repetitive with some phrases. Somewhat clichéd. I found myself thinking "have I already listened to this bit? Did I skip back a chapter?"
Having said that it is an invaluable resource for "nice guys" with its incisive commentary on the destructive and unhelpful behaviors one can fall into and it's remedies for said behaviors.
Numerous examples of the real people has been shared here .. And most of them are insightful as well, however, it is getting repetitive towards end of the book.
Did not find any problem with the narrator as opposed to people complaining in other reviews here.
