The Nice Factor Book: Are you too nice for your own good? By Robin Chandler and Jo Ellen Grzyb. ISBN 0-671-02948-7.
This book just leapt out of the shelves at me! I have been told I am often too nice and let some people walk all over me. I just had to read this book.
An entertaining and easy read. With tips to raise awareness of the techniques people use to manipulate “nice” people, useful exercises to change perceptions and take back control, and great insights into how humans in general operate.
This is not about learning to be nasty, but rather about conscious, empowered choice – how to react to situations that maximises the opportunity to make true decisions without being mired in emotional turmoil and manipulation.
Well worth a read especially if you are one of the “nice” people.
