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 people pleaser, 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. Download and start listening now!

    " I'll admit it - I'm a People Pleaser. But thanks to this book, I'm recovering. I won't go far in the other direction, but I'm working on not completely sacrificing my own needs for others in an unhealthy way. It's tragic this author is no longer with us. "
