Summary

Are you too nice?

If you find it hard to be assertive, directly ask for what you want, or say "no" to others, then you just might be suffering from too much niceness.

In this controversial book, world-renowned confidence expert, Dr. Aziz Gazipura, takes an incisive look at the concept of nice. Through his typical style, Dr. Aziz uses engaging stories, humor, and disarming vulnerability to cut through the nice conditioning and liberate the most bold, expressive, authentic version of you.

You'll discover how to:

  • Easily say "no" when you want to and need to
  • Confidently and effectively ask for what you want
  • Speak up more freely in all your relationships
  • Eliminate feelings of guilt, anxiety, and worry about what others will think

Long and self indulgent

This audiobook is made excessively long (18hrs) by the authors autobiographical style of recounting many stories of his own life when explaining a point.
I found it hard to keep going with it as it just seemed never ending without going anywhere. Not for me.

Exceeded My Expectations

Would you listen to Not Nice again? Why?

Absolutely. I was pleasantly surprised how helpful this was. Lot's of "AH HA!" moments. I'll be referencing back to the content many times I'm sure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The author himself.

Which character – as performed by Dr. Aziz Gazipura PsyD – was your favorite?

Again, the author himself.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How to instantly take control of your life and happiness.

Any additional comments?

This was a real revelation. I think I'm getting a handle on controlling my time now and it feels great. I thought it would mean being a jerk, but once you understand it correctly you see it's not that at all. Great stuff!

Powerful book helps you get clarity.

I absolutely love this book. It reminded me of an older book called No More Mr. Nice Guy, but better.

This book helped me get a stronger sense of clarity and allowed me to look within myself and uncover my identity. I don't know about you but I often times would think about how my life would be if I was someone else, and even though I'm older now, I still had those same feels.

After reading this I have new found energy and a high level of commitment to myself. Check this book out if you are feeling like you need to reawaken who you are. Being "nice" means being under the blip on a heart monitor. You have so much more to give.

If it would be 100 stars rating review, I would give 100.

Do you remember a book ‘No more Mr nice guy’? I hate hate that book. After reading it, I felt that I am more screw up, then before that book. I did not remember any tool, just how fucked up nice people are. (Not author, he was perfect) So, I was kind of sceptic, before I start to read ‘Not nice’ But this book is nothing like that. Actually the book is brilliant. It’s guidebook, how to liberate yourself, to finally feel comfortable with yourself, authentic, bold and free. Great explanations about inner mechanisms and mindsets, examples, tools and exercises. If you struggle with stress and expressing yourself. You will find here everything what you need and more. Really good job Mr Aziz.
I know my English is not perfect but I won’t apologize for that ;))

This book has changed my life!

I loved this book. What’s funny is, it is all in the title. By the time you finish this book, you will stop people pleasing, staying silent, and feeling guilty, and start speaking up, saying no, asking boldly, and unapologetically being yourself. Dr. Aziz helps you realize why you do the things you do, shows you why it doesn’t work, and then gives you tips and tricks for a variety of situations to start being “not nice”. Even before finishing the book I started implementing Dr. Aziz’s advice and have already started seeing major results in my own life. It’s powerful stuff with a dash of humor. I will be sharing it with several people I know who are too nice, and I know it will change their lives. Thanks for writing this book Dr. Aziz.

Being nice isn't nice for anyone.

We often hold in anger and don't even realize it, thinking we are helping others, when we aren't.

Aziz has changed my life

This is my second book of his I've read. He is a master at enacting lasting change. I'm not only more confident, but am so much happier than I've ever been. For the first time, I feel like I understand my emotions. And I understand how fear is everywhere in our lives even when we don't realize it. I've been following Aziz for a few months now, and the results still haven't faded. I've worked on my confidence plenty of times before, but I've never had such consistent and long-lasting results. Thanks, Aziz.

Life changing practical advice and techniques

I really appreciate this book. I’ve already changed aspects of my life, and I will continue to evolve based on easy (and at first seemingly impossible) techniques I learned.

Engaging read

If you could sum up Not Nice in three words, what would they be?

Narrator feels like your new BFF.

What about Dr. Aziz Gazipura PsyD’s performance did you like?

I really like the narration. It is conversational, like Dr Gazipura is telling you his life story.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

Being nice is not a thing to strive after.

Any additional comments?

I'm only 3 chapters into the audiobook, but I just have to take a moment to say that the conversational style of narration is so refreshing after months of robotic style readers in the "self help" genre. It's so easy and engaging, and Dr Gazipura is so authentic, vulnerable, and revealing in the details of his story and in his voice. It feels like a heart to heart with a friend--that I'm learning a lot from. I can't speak for the multitude of content of this book yet, but so far it's an easy listen with lots of personal examples and oppotunities to connect to the author's experiences.
