Forword by Guy Corneau

We're much more likely to speak politely to other people than to runthe risk of expressing our true feelings. Our natural instinct is to beobliging, to wear a mask and to play a role, hoping to win recognitionand acceptance. Sooner or later, though, this habit of masking our truefeelings will lead us to ignore the feelings of others, stirring upconflict.

Being Genuine: Stop Being Nice, Start Being Real willhelp us break through our restraints. We need to be more aware of theway we think and behave, to recognize and take care of our own needsrather than wait for someone else to step in.

Highlighting his points with striking examples, the author explains howour tendency to downplay our personal needs inevitably sets upcon­­­flict within ourselves, prompting us to hurt others. This book isan invitation to nip potential violence in the bud – in the mind andheart of each of us.
