"No More Mr. Nice Guy" | A Boöring Book Club Review

“No More Mr. Nice Guy”

As discussed in this YouTube video - we will rank and review this book, then leave three tips we’ve learned at the bottom.

First, we rank the book based on three factors:

  1. Enjoyability

  2. Applicability

  3. Literary Value

Score:

Enjoyability (4*)

This will be a 4* or 1* for you…

I considered 1* because of how much it pissed me off. It’s like discovering you live in Plato’s Cave…

Applicability (5*)

Important Note:
This book isn’t about manipulation. It’s the exact opposite.
It’s about being upfront and honest with your needs, and overcoming unnecessary selflessness.

Robert Glover brings up an interesting observation about the upbringing of post-war boys, and how that shaped our society today.

The book also delves into the long-term effect of children who dealt with narcissistic parents.

Like I said, this book pissed me off.
Thank you, Robert Glover.

Literary Value (1*)

You won’t read this book for any literary gain.

Three Lessons from the Book:

  1. Pursue your passion

  2. Nice guys are misleading

  3. Upfront and honest - always

//side note: I hate the cover of this book. I crumbled the paper up and tossed it. Now the book is red. I like that more.

Thank you for reading!
