Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do you (or does someone you know)...

--Apologize frequently or for things you are not responsible for?

--Get preoccupied with what other people think of you?

--Become unhappy when your partner isn't happy?

--Feel worried or fretful so often it seems normal?

--Often not know what you want?

--Constantly second-guess yourself?

Chronic Niceness affects multitudes, causing severe anxiety and depression, crippling self-esteem, and undermining and destroying relationships

Anxious to Please reveals the primary psychological cause of Chronic Niceness--Anxious Attachment. Anxious Attachment drives the Nice Person to accommodate, acquiesce and avoid conflict. Nice People take what they're given rather than asking for what they want, often sacrificing relationship, careers and their own integrity.

Anxious to Please presents seven powerful practices designed to bring about: resilient self-esteem; a happier and calmer emotional life; a reality-based optimism for the future; fulfilling sex; and satisfying relationships.

Book News Annotation:

Therapist Rapson and co-writer English find people who try to be "too nice" actually have anxious attachment disorders that stem from childhood. They help correct this situation in a series of exercises and guided reflections so the chronically nice can deal positively with work, family and social life. Since "nice" people apparently are especially anxious about romantic relationships, Rapson and English include advice on the transforming relationship, creative conflict, union and commitment. The result is a gentle series of insights written for people who are dealing with significant life issues that may make it difficult for them to understand that being inappropriately "nice" is actually not nice at all.
