    Thought it might be worth having a thread for any books that might be helpful.

    Don't necessarily have to be specifically related to PMO but also about relationships, psychology or anything that might help people kick their addictions.

    I'm almost finished reading "No more Mr Nice Guy" by Robert Glover. Thanks to John4life for recommending. It resonates very strongly with me but might mean nothing to other guys. It's largely about guys who are always trying to please women but end up pleasing neither women nor themselves.

    "The Brain that changes itself" by Norman Doidge has been recommended by a few people and on YBOP. I'm looking forward to reading it.

    Why do you say it might mean nothing to other guys?

    I've heard of the book as well, and although I haven't read it just yet, judging from the countless positive reviews it has received, I think almost anyone who reads it can take away something meaningful and life-changing from it.

    Well, the basic premise of the book is that there's far too many men who have lacked a male influence in their life, particularly growing up - these guys end up being "Nice guys". But the author argues that in reality lots of these guys are often not as "nice" as they seem, but that they're really just trying to please people which actually leads to quite negative consequences for them and for their partners.

    I imagine there's lots of guys who never lacked a male influence in their lives growing up, so I'm guessing those guys wouldn't be able to relate to the ideas in the book. But maybe not, I don't know.

    It's quite a light read, so worth a look anyway
