"From his years of counseling experience, Lou Priolo has developed a work that exposes many of the prideful manifestations of people-pleasing, while also walking the reader through the biblical process of repentance from the heart. This is a book that God can use greatly to change lives." --Stuart Scott, Associate Professor of Biblical Counseling, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Lou Priolo has written an extremely biblical and practical book to help the 'people- pleaser.' Even if you think you do not have this weakness, you may be convicted that you do! The strengths of this book are its biblical principles, its charts with wrong compared to right ways of thinking, and its counsel on how to become a 'God-pleaser.' I am very pleased to have this resource for helping people, and I highly endorse it." --Martha Peace, biblical counselor and author of The Excellent Wife and Damsels in Distress
"Lou has done a great job in unmasking the problem of people-pleasing and providing God's solution to the problem. I commend this book to you because of its biblical and extremely practical nature. Buy it, read it, reread it, and use it in your counseling and teaching." --Wayne Mack, director of Strengthening Ministries

Light on specific recommendations 'how to overcome', I did appreciate the section that prepares me for substitute thinking. For example, rather than acting upon the thought, 'he will get mad' and so not confront rude behavior, I might think of the scripture, 'when I am afraid I will put my trust in you (God).'
Overall, a decent read to skim and find the highlights.
