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.

Nobody’s perfect and yet we try so hard to be. The opinions of others matter so much that it drives many to become “people pleasers.” The problem is that you are not perfect and even if you did something perfectly somebody would find a way to crucify your work. Since we can’t please all people all of the time we should strive to please the only perfect person to ever live, Jesus.

The high-achieving Type E woman-the woman who is trying to excel in multiple roles and be everything to everybody-is the victim of her own success. The more she shows she can do, the more others demand of her. And the cost to her physical and mental health can be enormous. By understanding the conflicts underlying Type E behavior, and by adopting Dr. Braiker's Type E stress management program, women can be successful without killing themselves by trying to do and have it all. In addition to exposing the Everything-to-Everybody stress syndrome and examining its psychological causes, Dr. Harriet Braiker, who first identified Type E, shows how to tell if you are a Type E woman, gives strategies and exercises to build better stress resistance, and presents a 21-Day Mental Workout Training Program to help manage the barrage of demands that threaten to overwhelm Type E women. The Type E Woman is the book for all women who strive to achieve in and outside of the workplace-for women of any age, in any position of life. It is for every woman trying to juggle multiple roles, as the majority of women today do.

Do you have a hard time saying no to others, no matter how outrageous their requests? If so, you might be a chronic people-pleaser. Unfortunately, because we live in a society that praises putting the needs of others before ourselves, it can be difficult to break this bad habit. And while thinking of others is always commendable, there is a fine line between sacrifice and senseless approval seeking. In The Need to Please, a leading mindfulness expert and psychotherapist provides compassionate, mindfulness-based techniques that will help chronic people-pleasers like you address and overcome your fears of failure, inappropriate self-sacrificing, loss of personal identity, and voracious need of approval. In addition, you will learn to put an end to the codependent behaviors that lie at the heart of being a people-pleaser. Change is hard—especially when it means going against years of social conditioning. But if you’re ready to “Just Say No,” to others’ demands and start saying, “Yes” to your own needs, this book can help. You can find out more about these mindfulness techniques at www.livingmindfully.org.
