♦ Description : “We have become accustomed to concealing what is happening in us to buy recognition, integration or apparent comfort rather than expressing ourselves as we are. We learned to cut ourselves off to be with others. Everyday violence is triggered by this break: failure to listen to oneself sooner or later leads to non-respect of the other person. Stop being nice, be honest ! is a bucket of water launched to wake us from our unconsciousness. There is an urgent need to be more aware of how we think and act. The message of Stop being nice, be true! is more current than ever. To make his subject even more accessible, the author has chosen to review his text and embellish it with humorous illustrations. Condensed, simplified and lighter, this new edition is the first essential step for anyone seeking to free themselves from their harmful habits and to open up to the concepts of non-violent communication.”

Alexis Nouailhat is an illustrator. He has published watercolor travel diaries. He also illustrates conferences. He met Thomas at a conference and introduced him to his work.

Born in 1957, Thomas Ansembourg was a lawyer and legal advisor. At the same time, he has been involved for almost 10 years as a leader-facilitator of an association that deals with young people in difficulty. It is by listening to these young people that he has been able to realize that most of their behaviors, often considered as deviant, represent the tragic expression of basic needs (identity, tenderness, gratitude …) who have found no other fashion to tell oneself. Trained in different psychotherapeutic approaches, particularly in the method of Dr. Marshall Rosenberg, the Nonviolent Communication, he animates trainings and gives conferences.”
