I don’t consider Mr Nice Guy one of the top books out there.
Those who think they are bad and need to correct themselves, and those who think they are so good and lie to themselves to keep their self image.
The former had a troubled and rebellious childhood he needs to make up for. There are many ways Glover recommends to overcome the Mr Nice Guy syndrome, including: Nice cannot have intimate relationships.
You are not alone – here you have a safe place to be among other men that understand you.
Here you have a chance to rewrite how your life can be rather than how it has been.
However, even considering its limitation, I do recommend it.
Both to nice guys and even to understand nice guys’ psychology -and general psychology-.
The nice guy is afraid of conflict but nothing ever gets solved with him because he doesn’t necessarily agree, he just avoids conflict (also read passive aggression).
He tells people what they want to hear but then reverses his decision to please someone else.
Intimate relationships requires people to look down themselves and open up who they really are.
