Yes, it is for person that doesn't have a good childhood experience and bad parents, both men and women, the only thing that make this book more suitable for male is that nice guys syndrome are more prevalent and more detrimental to guys than girls, if you are a nice guy, you are doomed for your whole life, if you are a female, then you might have your attractiveness as a last resort for your lacking of personality and confidence.
Hey Jessica, I'm a male reviewer and I've read this book. I think it definitely still applies for women as I have met and have a lot of female friends that have the issues that this book describes. It's a syndrome that affects everyone. It's not exclusive to just one sex so yes I think it could help you but all of the examples in the book are written about men and the book is intended for a male audience. If that's not an issue than I think it could really be a big help for you. But a warning, the author gives you exercises in this book to ACTUALLY DO. If you don't do them then buying this book really won't help you a bit. Also, the author Brene Brown has three exceptional books (one geared specifically towards a female audience) that would also likely be a great addition to your self help library and that deals with a lot of the issues of fear, anxiety, and shame that Robert Glover talks about in No More Mr. Nice Guy. Hope this helps.
