From the Publisher
Understand human behavior and social psychology - and then you can understand yourself and the people around you.
Let's face it - most of the problems that we encounter in our lives aren't about the situation, it's about the person in front of you. Whether it's a parent, sibling, co-worker, or even significant other, there might be a gap in understanding. That's reasonable and normal.
But what if you could learn to understand people, their motivations, what makes them tick, and ultimately how to connect with them better? This is renowned author Patrick King's specialty: distilled emotional intelligence that helps you decipher why people do the things that they do.
He combines his natural instinct for human analysis with a plethora of the latest scientific research in the field to bring you the end result you want: better relationships, high self-esteem and confidence, self-understanding, and overall fulfillment and happiness.

Patrick King is a Social Interaction Specialist and Conversation Coach based in San Francisco, California.
He has sold over 1 million books, and he is one of the world's foremost authorities when it comes to social skills, social psychology, and human behavior.

I would appreciate a Table of Contents. Now that I have read the book I'd like to go to the wonderful book summary at the back of the book for a refresher course. A Table of Contents would make this so much easier on kindle.
I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who currently, or has in the past found it difficult to say NO to people. If I could go back to my 20-something self and read a book like this, I would be much further ahead in life.
The other particularly helpful point he made, I think, is that "no" is a complete sentence. Default to no. Just say no. For example, one of those obnoxious salesmen with a clipboard that haunt the empty aisles of BJs Warehouse stores hunts you down to talk you into home repairs or insurance or something utterly unrelated to what you are there for, grocery shopping: "Excuse me, could I talk with you for a moment?" Answer: "No." Said firmly, and if they don't understand that, add "Go away," just as firmly and a little louder. I love this trick and it really works for me.
1. If discusses in depth people pleasing motivation and psychological factors. You can't stop being a people pleaser without changing your mentality so this is very helpful to changing your mindset.
2. It gives principle on setting the boundaries and retaking your control of your own life. Again, very thoughtful on this part.
3. Very practical advices on saying no to people. This is the practical part of this book, which in itself is worth the price and effort reading this book.
I can't say enough about the author and his books (including this one) helps me. I highly recommend this book and Patrick's many other books.

Thank you Patrick - this is the book I have needed for so long.
The author puts some very good home truths in there that I was not aware of such as those of us that are people pleasers may not be as nice as we think we are.
I found the book to be very very helpful and informative especially about people pleasing turning into anger which is the stage I was at before this purchase.
The end result is I’ve cut off a toxic “friend” who I was (choosing) to pander after and in effect have cut us both free.
I feel much better and confident and more importantly self aware of my own behaviour no matter how ‘ nice’ I thought I was being,
Will definitely buy more from this author. Good stuff!
It also made me face the origins of my people pleasing and learn how to 'recover'. How eye opening. How freeing!
Thank you Patrick, you have lifted a weight off my shoulders. I'm going to re-read this again soon. :-)
