Reviews - What do customers think about Pleasers?

Pros and cons of this book...  May 4, 2009
* Well written.
* Addresses a range of "pleasing" behaviors, from totally self-destructive to realizing that you have a mild problem. This was a refreshing change from some other books that dealt with deep codependency.
* Pretty accurate about the parental sources of "pleasing" issues.
* Good advice about standing up for yourself.

* Stealth Christianity! The book begins as a normal self-help book, and as you read on, more and more references to God, Christian living, not having sex until marriage, etc. appear. If you read his bio, the author turns out to be reasonably well known in the evangelical community...but the Christian aspects aren't mentioned at all in the preface or first chapter.
* Every example in the book is a married white woman, unless she's unhappily divorced.

So, not an awful book but definitely a sneak attack, which makes it far less helpful than it could be. If your lifestyle isn't "traditional" or "Christian" you'll probably come away from reading it with either lower self-esteem than when you started, or be pretty angry that you spent 3 hours of your life reading it. Perhaps it should be retitled "Save Your Christian Marriage By Healing Your Woman's Soul" or something similar.
Loved this book  Sep 30, 2008
This is a great great book. If you are a "pleaser" you need to read this.
