"I could not put this book down. And as soon as I finished reading it, I read it again. And maybe one more time after that ...The Whimsical Rebel: Break People-Pleasing Addiction without Becoming an Asshole is a must-read for anyone needing to learn how to better love and understand themselves. Ahdri Kent offers unparalleled, intuitive, and endearing insights into why we people pleasers do what we do.
With her raw language, captivating stories, and profound guidance, Kent gives readers someone to relate to and lovingly accepts exactly who they are. It's okay to want to please others; that makes us special. But we need to learn how not to lose ourselves in the process. This book made me laugh, cry, gasp, and sigh ... It was an emotional ride in the best of ways. Along the way, I gained valuable knowledge that has changed my entire outlook on my life and relationships. Experiencing so many "AH-HA!" moments in this book, I have come to better understand myself and others. Kent has given me the tools I desperately needed but never knew I was missing."

"This book was a hit upside the head I didn't know I needed. I've been asleep to the concepts that the author illustrates with a refreshing sense of authenticity and casual conversational humor. She takes a very serious issue and presents it as if we were friends chatting over coffee. It made this very palatable. Interesting read!"

"I freaking love this book! As a success and leadership coach, I see so many people sidelined by their people-pleasing and perfectionist issues. This no-nonsense, outspoken approach is just what so many people need to take the first step towards their own empowerment. I found myself cheering and shouting as if I were at a church revival. If you're stuck in the world of putting everyone above yourself and then hating yourself for it afterward, and you like a direct non-apologetically aggressive (in all the right ways) approach, this book is for you!"

"This book was so helpful both to help me to identify which type of people pleaser I am (I'm a Mouse!) and to have some concrete steps for shifting out of the people pleasing mindset and into one that is healthier for both myself and those around me."
