Though written with an audience of pathological people-pleasers seeking a cure in mind, The Disease to Please is not only useful to those suffering from what Harriet Braiker calls a "dysfunctional personality type", but to anyone who thinks their parent, spouse, romantic partner, or friend might be unhealthily subverting their own needs and desires to those of others. Informative, frank, and engagingly-written, The Disease to Please is an insightful and illuminating snapshot of a particular kind of self-defeating psychology.
