1.0 out of 5 stars Cover Too Nice for the Content., 18 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Too Nice for Your Own Good: How to Stop Making 9 Self-Sabotaging Mistakes (Paperback)
This isn't a book for those who are shy and lack confidence or make themselves victims and doormats. This is designed to make you see your faults about being too pushy, giving unrequested advice and generally being a bit of a well-meaning bossyboots. The author is a preacher and tells us not to tell others what they should and should not do. He then proceeds to do just that very thing over the next few hundred pages. It didn't make him very popular with me. So there - he's RIGHT. Which he knows he always is anyway. On the last page, he tells you to tell other people about what a marvellous book this is so that they will buy it too....

Feeling a bit low even though you are good to others? Dale Carnegie's classic, "How to Win Friends and Influence People" is a better, light-hearted book that won't preach and make you feel worse. There! I have TOLD you something, which I am not meant to do or it might make me unpopular! But I hope it helps you.

I sold my copy of "Too Nice" and was glad to be rid of it. One star for the nice cover.

Thanks for the amusingly acidic comments. I haven't read this but I can imagine that the author takes the usual 'salesman' stance and sells his ideas as irreplaceable. I think he may well be saying things that some people need to hear, though. Maybe it all depends on one's starting point.
