Publisher's Summary

Find out how women can overcome the pressure to please others and feel free to be their true selves.

Are you too nice for your own good? Do family members manipulate you? Do coworkers take advantage of you? If this sounds familiar, listen to The Nice Girl Syndrome. In this breakthrough guide, renowned author and therapist Beverly Engel, who has helped thousands of women recognize and leave emotionally abusive relationships, can show you how to take control of your life and take care of yourself.

Engel explains that women today simply cannot afford to be Nice Girls, because women who are too nice send the message that they are easy targets and are much more likely to be victimized emotionally, physically, and sexually. She identifies the seven different types of Nice Girls and helps you understand which type or types might apply to you. Engel helps you determine whether the Nice Girl Syndrome is keeping you in an abusive relationship or in manipulative situations and helps you change Nice Girl beliefs and behaviors that are holding you back. This book:

  • Explains how to confront the beliefs and behaviors that keep you stuck in a Nice Girl act as you replace them with healthier, more empowering ones.
  • Includes inspiring stories of women Engel has worked with who have found the courage and strength to stop taking abuse and start standing up for themselves.
  • Is written by renowned author and therapist Beverly Engel, who has helped thousands of women recognize and leave emotionally abusive relationships.

Filled with wise advice, powerful exercises, and practical prescriptions, The Nice Girl Syndrome tells you step by step how to take control of your life and be your own strong woman.

    Story
    "Very helpful book for (too) nice people.."

    Many times in my life people told my i was "too nice".. Now i know clearly what they meant and why i acted like that. The thing is that there is a difference between being just nice (polite, friendly etc.) to people that is generally OK and being TOO nice. Being too nice is letting some people take advantage of you, hurt or manipulate... Unfortunatelly we live in the world that not everyone is so called "nice", so it's very important to know the difference... Everybody want to be good - man want to be "good guys" and women want to be "nice girls", but it's very important to know and not to cross the limits. this book helped me a lot to understand myself, why i acted like i acted in the past, and to understand and see clearly that some people tried to manipulate me, now i see the truth. I recommend this book to all the women that are little bit naive or wearing "pink glasses" and wants to believe that human nature is all good etc. well it is sometimes, and sometimes not. Thank you Beverly for this honest and straightforward book!
