Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“For my money, I would always rather make a deal with people I like who treat me well. If you want to discover the surprising power of nice, read this book. Memorize it. Use it. You’ll be glad you did.” Donald Trump
“Though a lively and pleasant read, this is not a cutesy little bonbon of a book. Well thought-out and crisply presented, it offers key principles, case studies and exercises to help make niceness habitual. Some exercises, like turning personal disappointment into positive energy, are even quite therapeutic.” Publishers Weekly
“[Thaler and Koval’s] conversational style gives one the feeling of being in their presence and participating in a discussion. They prove through their many experiences that it really does pay to be nice…These two women, talented in business, writing, and speaking, make this a must-hear book for leaders in any walk of life.” AudioFile
