Thank you Patrick - this is the book I have needed for so long.
The author puts some very good home truths in there that I was not aware of such as those of us that are people pleasers may not be as nice as we think we are.
I found the book to be very very helpful and informative especially about people pleasing turning into anger which is the stage I was at before this purchase.
The end result is I’ve cut off a toxic “friend” who I was (choosing) to pander after and in effect have cut us both free.
I feel much better and confident and more importantly self aware of my own behaviour no matter how ‘ nice’ I thought I was being,
Will definitely buy more from this author. Good stuff!
That really is the entire content of this book, only it took me 2 lines whereas the author requires 230 pages.
I got this book because Amazon made me an offer I couldn't refuse, by discounting the kindle version massively. But seriously, it needs to be a 2-page magazine article or a web page. There's only a finite number of ways that you can tell someone to be more selfish, and this book manages to do all of them many times over.
Save yourself a few hours' reading time. Google the subject and find a shorter version of the advice.
