If you’re anything like me, you’re a recovering “nice guy”, or maybe you still are one. A lot of men may hear that and wonder what’s wrong with being nice. There’s nothing wrong with being nice until it comes at the expense of your own well-being.
My guest today, author of the book No More Mr. Nice Guy, Dr. Robert Glover, joins me to talk about the myth of the nice guy, common negative symptoms the nice guy experiences, how to implement the “Healthy Male Rule,” and how you can eliminate the nice guy once and for all.

Dr. Robert Glover
Guys, I was only recently introduced to my guest’s work just a couple months ago but, after reading his best-selling and controversial book, No More Mr. Nice Guy, I knew I had to get Dr. Robert Glover on the show.
This book spoke to me since I am a recovering nice guy as is Dr. Glover and, the strategies he shares in the book saved my life and saved my marriage.
This man has helped thousands of Nice Guys transform from behaving like these passive, victims to empowered, “integrated males.”
He’s got books, online classes, courses, groups, and workshops all designed to help men take a more assertive role in their lives and today he’s here to talk about overcoming the “Nice Guy Syndrome.”
