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.

Overall I have found this book to be extremely helpful. It is in line with the themes from "No more Mr. Nice Guy" and then expands on the concepts of being true to yourself, Saying "No", and discovering your shadow.
At the end is a "Boldness Training Bootcamp" which provides good guidance on how to put these principles into action over 30 days.
Highly recommended for eradicating the plague of "niceness" which seems to be infecting a lot of modern men.

Within just a few minutes I was fixed to the spot with surprise, as listening to the points he made in that 45 minute conversation was like someone sounding a gong behind my head! I recognised myself and some of the problems I've had in life over and over again, and so decided to purchase the kindle book to delve a bit deeper. I'm very pleased that I did. It's easy to read without having to trudge through psychobabble, and has lots of great examples, profound quotes and even an action list at the end to get you used to being less nice. My interpretation of 'less nice' being more assertive and clear about what you do and don't want (or agree with), and being able to communicate that even if you feel uncomfortable about it in the beginning.
If you believe that you are someone who always feels obliged to do things so as not to upset the apple-cart, apologises too much or just doesn't feel that you are the authority in your own life then I'd definitely recommend it. I've just this moment finished it, and I plan to read through it a second time to reinforce my learning.
Hope you find it as insightful and useful as I have.
This book will help you to put yourself in the first place, instead of even unconsciously be peoples pleaser becoming "yourself pleaser" for your own and even others good, after all in your universe the most important person is you and that's how it should be!
The book is large, full of valuable and thoughtful observations that will make reading fast and pleasurable, it's got 15 chapters that I'm sure from each one of them you will extract knowledge that will stick with you and make you more aware in your everyday behaviors.
This book abolishes some old steorotypes and provides a fresh, detailed look on the subject.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is into self improving and is looking for practical means of seeing how it's done.
