Summary

Originally published as an ebook that became a controversial media phenomenon, No More Mr. Nice Guy! landed its author, a certified marriage and family therapist, on The O'Reilly Factor and the Rush Limbaugh radio show. 

Dr. Robert Glover has coined the "Nice Guy Syndrome" for trying too hard to please others while neglecting one's own needs, thus causing unhappiness and resentfulness. It's no wonder that unfulfilled Nice Guys lash out in frustration at their loved ones, claims Dr. Glover. 

He explains how they can stop seeking approval and start getting what they want in life, by presenting the information and tools to help them ensure their needs are met, to express their emotions, to have a satisfying sex life, to embrace their masculinity and form meaningful relationships with other men, and to live up to their creative potential.

A turning point in my life.

The same as what the author/narrator states, every chapter will resonate with the 'nice guy'.
The author has had enough experience dealing with nice guys to be able to hit on alot of signals associated with the issue to which i was not prepared for. To say he knows my deep seated issues is an understatement.
Quality of narration and subject knowledge is top class.
If you want to get the most out of this audio book, do not take this as a fleeting past time that you listen to on the way to work for 15minutes; dive into it head first, set a few hours aside regularly to do the activities and dig down deep to confront all the shit and sort out all that preprograming that is holding you back.

Review stop seeking approval/ fear of acception

•Ask for what you want
•Put yourself first. Makes your needs a priority.
•Stop seeking approval!▪be you, you are ok, you are awesome
[•Face your fears]
•Be honest
●Authentic,Comfotable with his sexuality and masculinity,Honest, Bondouries,Integrity =an integrated Man
■If you didn't care what other people thought of you, how would you live your life?
■Bondouries. If this behaviour had occurred on the second date, would there be a third? How a healthy male would manage the situation?

Combines all I couldn’t explain

I am codependent and though I have found amazing books on the subject I found it hard to apply to a male point of view, this book does it well.

Nailed me right between the eyes

As a 46 year old male, ex-Marine, and self professed “nice guy” I finally understand that all this time, I have been causing my own pain. It hasn’t been my career, my spouse, my friends, my environmental conditions. The common factor in all those things has been me. No more Mr. nice guy described many of my own internal feelings like someone was reading my mind. Things that I’ve never told anyone. Now that I have clarity on these issues, I now have a way to work through them to be set free. I’ve already applied some of the techniques with immediate results. Mainly because the change started with me, which then encouraged positive responses from others. So basically, now I’m in the process of reviewing all of my thoughts and actions to challenge and change the defaults. If you even think this book might help you, take a chance. I did and I’m so very thankful to the author.

Practical guide for people pleasers

This book really resonated with me. It details many of the reasons and solutions for overcoming toxic shame. This is the updated version of the book. I’m not sure if the previous version had a pdf, but this one doesn’t. Tough to practically implement the recommended exercises without that.

Pretty tough to hear but absolutely necessary

just finished the book and it was a tough but necessary lesson. I haven't gone on to work on any of the lessons in the book but damn was it spot on for me. If you decide to listen or read this book because you think it might be you be ready for some tough love. your only going to take away lessons from this book if you're in the stage of your life that you are ready to make a change.

This book changed my life

Absolutely the worst best thing to ever happen to me. Finding this book saved my life. If you have ever been called a nice guy too much or consider yourself a nice guy read this book!

The first chapter was a punch to the gut and a knee to the face. my world was turned upside down immediately for the better. don't take my word for it. Get this book!

I could never figure out why I was unhappy, why I never got the girl, why I was afraid of dumb things. this book made me realize what I am and how to change. No More Mr. NiceGuy for me

Fantastic book

So many guys struggle to find contentment and happiness in relationships. But it really starts with the guy himself! Who are you? What do you want? What makes you fulfilled and joyful!? This book helps clarify so much. As a woman, I feel I can understand why men struggle so much now and it's so much more common than I even knew. Thanks for this wonderful book.

Fantastic insights. Literally changed the way I see myself and the world

This is a great book.

The author has managed to uncover and articulate something that I definitely suffer from, and through clear examples and exercises empowered me to make changes that have lead to a lore fulfilled and happy life.

I really believe in the core message and the purpose of this book and recommend it as essential reading for every man and every woman in a relationship with a man
