If you're looking for answers into why you seem to struggle with things like accomplishing goals, treating others kindly, loving yourself, and more than this book is for you. It has explained so many things about myself that I've always wondered about but never been able to put into words and truly recognize before. Through reading it I've been empowered to really start changing my behaviors because I finally recognize the root causes of the things I do. Highly recommend it to everyone and bought three other copies for my mom and sisters!
Publishers Weekly, 1995-05-15 Self-esteem expert Branden outlines the six characteristics that define his guide to better living, emphasizing personal responsibility and self-reliance. (June)
Publishers Weekly, 1994-01-03 Branden, the author of The Psychology of Self-Esteem and perhaps the best-known guru of self-esteem, here presents a sensible guide to daily living. First defining and explaining self-esteem, he then isolates six pillars of this characteristic: self-acceptance, self-responsibility, self-assertiveness, personal integrity, living consciously and living purposefully. Readers will find his emphasis on responsibility and self-reliance a refreshing change from trendy self-help guides that shift blame for personal shortcomings onto a neglectful parent or an alcoholic spouse. Branden also includes an analysis of cultural factors that inhibit self-esteem and suggests guidelines for parents, teachers, employers, psychotherapists and others who are instrumental in fostering this behavioral quality. A 3l-week program and a reading list round out the guide. First serial to New Woman. (Feb.)
