About the book:

You were reared to be socially acceptable. You think of yourself as a fairly nice person.  Yet you find that so many of the nice things you try to do leave you feeling burned out, bottled up, and like a bumbler. In this book, renowned minister and teacher Duke Robinson helps you understand why this happens.

Robinson knows that many of our well-intended nice behaviors carry down sides that undermine, betray and defeat us.  He nails nine such mistakes we nice people make every day.  Look at the books Contents page to see what they are. And see if it doesn't feel like you're looking in a mirror!

This book will show you how to correct these mistakes and start behaving in ways that will help you avoid stress, frustration and embarrassment. You quite quickly will learn how to:
-- Let go of your need to be perfect and to please everyone all the time.
-- Say "no" to requests for your energy and time, and feel wonderful doing so.
-- Tell others directly what you want from them, and actually receive it.
-- Express anger without blowing up and losing your valued relationships
-- Disarm those who wrongly or irrationally criticize or attack you.
-- Be both honest with, and gracious toward, those who fail or disappoint you.
-- Cease giving advice to others and feel good simply giving them information.
-- Be genuinely helpful to addicted loved ones, rather than try to rescue them.
-- Stop attempting to protect those in grief and begin supporting them.

This remarkable book will empower you to make these changes and liberate you for a richer more enjoyable life ... and you still will be a nice person!
