Good info but no exercises.

This book as a good amount of information that is pretty accurate. It will certainly make you think and help you understand yourself a bit more. I have met the author and he presents the material better in person than the book.

Now the bad aspect of this audio book is that there is very little (and almost none) exercises for learning to improve yourself. I was listening to the book getting very frustrated that it was all information and no ideas on how to work on improving. Toward the end of the book there was a section that I thought would start giving ideas for exercises, but nothing really substantial. Really pretty disappointing in this respect.

My suggestion is that you buy the physical book that does have exercises at the end of each chapter.

Things that make you go Hmm...

If you could sum up No More Mr. Nice Guy! in three words, what would they be?

Honest, Accurate and Revealing


What other book might you compare No More Mr. Nice Guy! to and why?

The power of vulnerability by Brene Brown. I mean in a way they bother speak to the crippling power of being scarred by shame and vulnerability. Not having your needs met as a child and the way you are made to over compensate as an adult.


Have you listened to any of Robert O'Keefe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

NO


What insight do you think you’ll apply from No More Mr. Nice Guy!?

The must important and revealing thing for me is that.. I am not alone and many people feel the same vulnerability I do and secondly I am good enough.


Any additional comments?

When I read the part that said " Nice guys were bottom feeders" it literally drove a spike in my heart.. I mean after all the years of running to make everyone happy....feeling noble feeling like a hero and actually its was just that ..I was bottom feeding...living on scraps..taking what ever i could get... and being happy with it. Sometimes when the truth is that brutal you are forced to blink.
