The book “No More Mr. Nice Guy” by Robert Glover had already been recommended by various voices in the manosphere. I recently read it and I fully support including this book into the manosphere bookshelf and I now include this book in my “Education of a Patriarch” book list. Like it or not, some part of the nice guy existed in most of us. The “Nice guy” of Dr. Glover is a coward who believed what he was told and mainly believe that if he will be ‘nice’ (which is in practice being submissive to others) nice things will happen to him. Unfortunately for him, this is just not true. Also, since masculinity is dominance, the nice guy destroys his masculinity and himself in the process of being nice and appeasing others.
It is not a perfect book, and many times the examined cases are too extreme and the suggested solutions are incomplete and whiny, such as “share it with a safe person”. In addition Dr. Glover lacks any perspective from evolutionary biology which is a shame but expected. (Personally, I support rearranging the academic departments so that psychology will be a field studied in biology faculties by biologists from an evolutionary biology perspective and thus become a “real” science.)
Even with these limitations, it is a great breakthrough book. It is in essence a moderate version of the manosphere published years before the manosphere came into existence. Dr. Glover insights are relevant more than ever and the ideas he discuss should be studied by young men in the western world. If you seek growth, I highly recommend reading this book.
