Originally published as an e-book that became a controversial media phenomenon, No More Mr. Nice Guy! landed its author, a certified marriage and family therapist, on The O'Reilly Factor and the Rush Limbaugh radio show. Dr. Robert Glover has dubbed the "Nice Guy Syndrome" trying too hard to please others while neglecting one's own needs, thus causing unhappiness and resentfulness. It's no wonder that unfulfilled Nice Guys lash out in frustration at their loved ones, claims Dr. Glover. He explains how they can stop seeking approval and start getting what they want in life, by presenting the information and tools to help them ensure their needs are met, to express their emotions, to have a satisfying sex life, to embrace their masculinity and form meaningful relationships with other men, and to live up to their creative potential.

    EXCELLENT BOOK FOR THERAPY CLIENTS

    As a therapist, I have found that when I recommend this book to men who are filled with guilt and shame, and who think women are the good gender, they are able to move much more quickly to a place of self acceptance. This allows them to live fuller, happier lives. Emotional symptoms decrease. Relationships become more fullfilling. I keep copies on hand to give to men who do not believe they deserve to care for themselves. Those who gave bad ratings were not able to see how the information in this book assists men who have believed our culture's view of them as bad and not deserving.

    Outstanding! This book should be MANDATORY reading for all men.

    The title is incredibly cheesy. However, the book itself is amazing. It allowed me to make connections to events in my past and the way I act, think, and function today. Even my thought processes and reasoning make more sense to me now and I can stop myself when I realize my actions and motives aren’t congruent with my goals be they in work, education, or human interaction.

    This book was literally life changing for me. Since reading this book my relationship with my girlfriend has been better, more constructive, and supportive than it’s ever been; and the same is true for my relationship and dialogue with my family.

    I owe Dr. Glover a debt of gratitude I can never repay. This book should be mandatory reading for ALL men.

    Descriptive definition and remedies to Nice Guy Syndrome

    I liked the content and the tasks it sets you out to overcome the status of Nice Guy. The examples of other men are relate-able. I think it is a good self-help book that every man should read, regardless of their successes or lack of. Women that are looking to improve relationships with their male friends and lovers should also take a fresh look at their friendship and relationship, respectively, using this book.

    I didn't like a few parts of the book. The book isn't as imaginative as I'd hoped but I guess that's what you get with a self-help book. Glover's not going to make it an easy ride for those of you considering it. I didn't like some of the tasks but they aren't mandatory for completion of the book.

    Wife of Nice Guy for 25 Years June 2008

    All nice guys should read this book. As it states Nice guys are not so nice. They manipulate and lie and don't know they are doing it. The spouse starts to believe it's all their fault, they are the one no longer sexual.Nice guys resent,blow up,look at women on the internet, please themselves,have affairs and still feels lonely.Sex does not cure their emptiness. This book helps Nice Guys to understand this. It started when they were a little boy, usually abandoment'father',controlling parent, being monogamous to their mother.They do not know how to connect 100 percent to their spouse,and if the spouse does not meet their needs the Nice guy resents them because they are giving so much and not getting what they want SEX,but what they are looking for is unconditional love,that they did not get when they were a child.Nice Guys have alot of fear that they will be found out, and if they are they will be abandoned because they are 'bad'. This book scared the Hell out of me, but it helped me to understand my husband.Once the Nice Guy can be honest with HIMSELF and his spouse it's like of ton on weights have been lifted off his shoulders. He doesn't have to lie anymore, he can tell the truth. We are working day by day because there is still alot of fears. The main thing they need to know is that they will not be abandoned and to give them UNCONDITIONAL LOVE! They are not bad men. They are good men! Then the intimacy gets better because it is no longer the main focus. The main focus becomes the honesty,integrity,connection, LOVE, and understanding of themselves! They then can have the intimacy they have always wanted, because they now know how to seek approval from themselves and not the female.

    You'll see the world a bit better, day by day

    At first, of course, I thought the book was a little silly. After going through the pages, I couldn't put it down. The book is aimed toward men who are 'push-overs' in relationships. Good information and great advice (as well as techniques) to become a better person,...and not so 'soft'. I highly recommend it!!

    One of the best book I have read...

    I think God was really looking out for me when I stumbled onto this book. When I was going through a dilemma about a girl who just took me forgranted and gave me a runaround, I was torned and ready to give up. Because I was a nice guy and I was afraid of hurting her feelings. I took her personally and how I was treated. I thought, there is got to be wrong with me and I was correct enough that there was. This book has help me so far how to be a real man that I am today. How to get what I want in almost every aspect of my life. Also this book has given me the opporunity to make a difference with my other fellow men. Which was a great feeling, knowing that I can make a difference in someone's life. I think every nice guy should buy this book. It is the last book you will need.

    No More Mr. Caretaker!!!

    There were so many situations and examples of myself in this book it was scary!!! It has helped me to identify and understand my many dysfunctions that have kept me a lonely, depressed man most of my life. I'm going through a divorce presently after only being married for a year and a half, to my first wife after 39 years of being single. This book has helped me to realize that my wife was only feeding my dysfunctions with her own. I'm 42 years old, and I only wish I could have identified my problems many years ago, instead of half way through my life. Now comes the hard part of wiping out 42 years of Nice Guy Syndrome

    Would you take advice from.....?

    Would you take advice from someone who has been through a divorce more than once? I like to research the credability of the authors of books I read. I am disappointed, because I bought the book first without doing my research on the author(looking for something for a friend in a bad relationship). Much of this book is regurgitated fluff from other books I have read (you may buy more useful books than this one, for sure). I ask myself, 'Is everyone raving about this book because it said to stick up for yourself?' There are better ones that state that. Catchy title, but I'm off to find a better book.

    Some of really do need a paradigm shift.

    If you have tried so hard to be nice, only to find that she felt like you were sucking the life out of her, this book will help. Normally I haven't much use for self-help books; most seem to be re-writes of the same old stuff. But this one was remarkable. I was completely taken by it, first sitting down in the bookstore and skimming about fifty pages, and then buying it working through it with a pen and highlighter. It is that good. For the past seven years I have been trying to clean up my personal junk and done reasonably well, but this would have made the task easier. The hardest thing to get over has been the utter bewilderment of trying to be the perfect nice guy and ending up alone with some potted plants and a lot of books. Guys I thought were selfish, thrived. They weren't selfish at all, they just had a healthy sense of their own value and dignity. These ideas are worth a serious effort to internalize.

    Everyone should read this book!

    At first I really didn't believe the high ratings by other readers of this book, 'No more Mr. Nice Guy' - I mean, NO BOOK could possibly be that good, right? Boy was I wrong... I only wish I had read this book several years ago; my life would have been completely different. This book has actually changed my whole outlook on life. It was so on target, I was shocked! I read it from cover to cover in only a few days. It is well written, easy to follow, and you get practical tools you can use from day one. Out of every self help, motivational, personal development book I have ever read, this book is by far the best of any them. Of course this is my opinion, and you may feel different but I challenge you to read it and see for yourself.

    wow

    This hard hitting book is just as hot as "What's Wrong with Black Women?" by Monte Maddox. Both authors don't have alot of so-called "scientific evidence", but who cares! He makes sense! They both make sense. Even more, this book is a wake up call and the alarm is getting loud! My bueno! Bravo!

    Completely unsubstantiated

    This book is completely unsubstantiated by any real research. The author bases his conclusions on the experiences of his clientelle and himself. This manual applies more the to type of people that he attracts rather than to male social patterns. Following the advise in this text is not likely to result in the kind of social changes that the reader desires.

    A must read

    Stop being a whimp and read this book! Or should I have said read this book and stop being whimp? You get the idea! The reveiwer who gave this book a poor one star rating is obviously happy with his life and therefore did not need to read this book. I, on the other hand, WAS NOT happy with my life before I read this book. After reading it I am totally happy all of the time and the ones in my life who I really care about are now happier with me.

    terribly insulting read

    I found the book to be quite offensive. Please pay attention to the grounding which the author bases most of his arguments for creating the Nice Guy paradigm. They are sweeping, ill-conceived arguments that play on mens' insecurities for there pocketbooks.

    A Must Read for All Nice Guys

    An excellent book on 'Nice Guy Syndrome', how we got into it, and how to get out of it. I now see how and why healthy women would not appreciate a man who wants to please her all the time. After 13 years and 2 marriages, I concluded that I just fell for the wrong women and they could not handle a loving, caring relationship. The fact is there was nothing loving or caring about our relationships, they were destined for disaster from the beginning. Thanks to this book, I can enter the future with my eyes wide open.
