Self-Help Books FAQs

Self-help books come in many different forms, and finding the right one for you all depends on what you're looking to improve in your life. For example, you might want emotional self-help books or self-management self-help books. Here's a short list of some self-help books that span several categories.

  • Burn After Writing by Sharon Jones
    Personal development self-help books can help you grow and reflect on the past. One of the best self-help books in the nation, Burn After Writing is a journal filled with prompts to help you reflect while fueling creativity. Each prompt asks questions and presents thought experiences to help individuals learn new things about themselves.
  • Adult Children of Emotionally Immature Parents by Lindsay C. Gibson
    Written by a clinical psychologist, this self-improvement book discusses emotionally unavailable or immature parents and how it's destructive to children. Topics include how parents create neglect and how children can recover and free themselves from emotionally immature parents.
  • How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie
    This book has been one of the top self-help books since 1936, when it was originally published. The book teaches you how to make people like you.
  • The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle
    The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment is a motivational self-help book that teaches individuals how to live in the present, rather than focusing on the past.
  • Attached by Amir Levine and Rachel Heller
    Attached is a book about dating that explains why some people are better at relationships than others, helping them to discover an understanding of attachment as an adult using relationship science.

Yes, self-help books work. However, it depends on the person. Reading a self-help book can help you learn different ways to improve yourself, but you must take action based on what you learn in the book. Self-help books help individuals feel more empowered to take control of their lives, but they're not right for everyone. Books are not a substitute for professional help when needed.

Self-help books are non-fiction because they're based on fact. Many self-help books use science or philosophy to help individuals become their best selves or learn about a topic.

Yes, Alibris sells new and used books of all kinds, including the best self-help books to help you feel more empowered in your daily life. Browse our selection of self-improvement books to find your next read.
