The Disease to Please : Curing the People-Pleasing Syndrome
by Harriet Braiker




Overview -

What's wrong with being a people pleaser? Plenty

A fascinating book... If you struggle with where, when, and how to draw the line between your own desires and the demands of others, buy this book ­­Kay Redfield Jamison, bestselling author of An Unquiet Mind and Night Falls Fast

People pleasers are not just nice people who go overboard trying to make everyone happy. Those who suffer from the Disease to Please are people who say Yes when they really want to say No. For them, the uncontrollable need for the elusive approval of others is an addiction. Their debilitating fears of anger and confrontation force them to use niceness and people-pleasing as self-defense camouflage.

Featured on NBC's Today, The Disease to Please explodes the dangerous myth that people pleasing is a benign problem. Best-selling author and frequent Oprah guest Dr. Harriet Braiker offers clear, positive, practical, and easily do-able steps toward recovery.

Begin with a simple but revealing quiz to discover what type of people-pleaser you are. Then learn how making even small changes to any single portion of the Disease to Please Triangle - involving your thoughts, feelings, and behavior - will cause a dramatic, positive and long-lasting change to the overall syndrome.

As a recovered peoplepleaser, you will finally see that a balanced way of living that takes others into consideration but puts the emphasis first on pleasing yourself and gaining your own approval is the clearest path to health and happiness.
