As an avid reader, I read pretty much anything that I can get my
hands on, including quite a few books on dating. If you know of
any that are not mentioned here that you think could help, please
feel free to contact me with the information.
Also, NiceGuys.Org is an Amazon.com
associate. This means that if you buy anything through NiceGuys.Org,
I may eventually get a check which would help defray the costs of
maintaining this site. I apologize if this seems crass and commercial,
but while I am maintaining this site for fun and to help other nice
guys, if I can get enough money for this, it makes it that much easier
to work on NiceGirls.Org
What the Hell Do Women Really Want: A Guide for Men in the 90s by Jama Clark
I think that most nice guys really need this book. Period. This
encapsulates most of what the other books are trying to say while
not holding any punches. Dr. Clark's Jerk/Doormat scale pretty well
covers the whole "nice guy" issue...you know all of the

can help you to understand why, as well as what you can do
to get dates.
Mars and Venus on a Date by John Gray

this book has some good points to make. I'd say that
the information is more useful for being in a relationship
than actually getting dates.
The other advantage of reading this also a possible
disadvantage is that it allows you to
talk about John Gray's writing intelligently. As a nice guy,
the last thing that you may need is to come across as any more
