On Being Nice

 

Exploring a much forgotten quality. 

Most books that want to change us seek to make us richer or thinner. This book wants to help us to be nicer: that is, less irritable, more patient, readier to listen, warmer, less prickly. Niceness may not have the immediate allure of money or fame, but it is a hugely important quality nevertheless and one that we neglect at our peril.

 

This is a guidebook to the uncharted landscape of niceness, gently leading us around the key themes of this forgotten quality. We learn how to be charitable, how to forgive, how to be natural, and how to reassure. We learn that niceness is compatible with strength and is no indicator of naivety. Niceness deserves to be rediscovered as one of the highest of all human achievements.

 

Chapters include:

  • Why We Don't Really Want to be Nice
  • Charity
  • Politeness
  • Losers and Tragic Heroes
  • What is the Purpose of Friendship?
  • How to Overcome Shyness
  • Why Flirting Matters
  • How to Be a Good Listener
  • The Charm of Vulnerability
