  • The Bible.
  • The 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene. Some of the tips seem kind of evil, but if you pick and choose which ones you want to follow it actually gives a lot of great advice.
  • The Tao of Pooh.
  • the one that's "the 7 habits of highly effective people" by stephen covey. it's great! i read the one by his soon for teens. i highly suggest that one!
  • Self help is a need in everyones life, never the less I tried some books but they were too complicated to practice. We then turned to Yoga which did help us energize our lives and feel great. Best regards.
  • "Been there, Done That? DO THIS! By Sam Obitz. It's about overcoming a dysfunctional past and anxiety but the tools in it helped me get all the energy I was wasting on worrying back.
  • Yes ... http://www.healing-tao.com/tao-garden/universal/en/books/ http://www.multi-orgasmic.com/ .
  • The best thing to do is write your own. You will then realize how much you already know and just follow your own advice.

  • Who moved my cheese (kinda self help, more management, but stands out as a classic) Edward De Bono - anything really, but I liked "I'm right, your wrong" sm00z - a book you may have read but I'm certain you will enjoy is: "Blink" Not self help - but VERY enjoyable read. In fact I'm certain. Here's a promise: buy the book, and if you DON'T like it, I'll send you an Amazon voucher to the value of the book. HOW'S ABOUT THAT! :-)

  • I do not often read self-help books although I garnered pieces of advice, which were very helpful, from the following: "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" by Stephen Covey - everyone should read this... "The Art of Happiness" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama - LOVE this book...have read a few times... "Self Matters" by Phil McGraw - don’t always agree with this man although his book was interesting...
  • out of curiosity. What exactly is the issue? (it is a direct question and I don't mean to sound blunt. I think it would help to narrow down the issue before suggesting a book). There are many types of self-help books some pertaining to work, others school, others focus on the helpful hand of religion and so on. However, none of these can be of any help without know more about the issue. If you a strict Catholic I would not suggest the Tao of Pooh. If you hated Christianity I won't have to read the screwtape letters and if you hated your job I would not have you read any survives guides and so on. I'm just saying that, at least for me, it would be helpful. I have a rich experience with these things and I'm hoping I can help.
  • See my response to a similar question here http://selfmotivational.brighterplanet.org/self-motivational/self-motivational-book-list regards

  • Feal the fear and do it anyway - Susan Jeffers http://www.amazon.co.uk/Feel-Fear-Anyway-Susan-Jeffers/dp/0712671056
  • Without a shadow of a doubt it has to be : "What to say when you talk to yourself" by shad helmstetter. (although I wonder what he had to say to himself to have such a pen name like a mills and boon hero acceptable to him (just jesting!:)). It makes you aware of your internal dialogue and I now talk to myself better in every situation!!
  • The Myth of Sisyphus - Albert Camus ;)
  • 7 habits of highly effective people - Stephen Covey
  • If you can get past the first chapter (where he always name drops all his other publications) then just about anything by Joe Vitale. His stuff has lots to mull over, but is very chatty and light and isn't like a full-on text book.
  • Essential Help for your Nerves - Dr Claire Weekes (for anxiety)
  • its not really a book, its a pamphlet called "if you INSIST on staying with your narcissist" It explained everything about my husband, the cheating, checking out other girls, never being satisfied with anything i do, criticizing my every move and my looks, the obsession with very young girls, him withholding sex, his belief that sexual pleasure is for him not me....it explained everything. I feel like a worthy person again knowing that this is all just HIS behavioral disorder and there is nothing terribly wrong with me.
  • Although it's not generally considered a "self-help" book, it has been regarded as the earliest version of one. "The Art of War" by (supposedly) Sun Tzu. It was one of the most interesting books I've ever read and led me to start questioning every tactic with regards to current use of the military. It's also been used to "self-help" people in various other fields. The Art of War for Success or Sun Tzu for Success is just one of the other versions. (I can't remember the exact name.) +3

  • A fantastic book: Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle

  • PMA: Positive Mental Attitude This book was sent to me through email by a colleague of mine from work. At first, I was offended by the gesture because I'm not even close to her. We rarely talk and she somehow gets to put her head into someone elses' business. I didn't confront her and I sarcastically told her "Thanks". Well, I was bored this one time and I decided to open the mail. It was a link to this self help book. I started reading part by part and realized that I really needed this book. I am negative in everything, no confidence at all, and every time I do something, I always think I am going to fail. Right now, I have become more positive, more confident. Just like the movie YES MAN. I hope I can keep this up until the latter parts of my life because right now, there's just so much to enjoy in our world. http://www.selfmadeeasy.com/pd-positive_thinking.cfm
  • The Bible.
  • No. Everyone thinks their method is the only thing that works. I dont want their methods I want my method. I'm all for individual counseling and solving my own problems by working on them and reporting back on what works and what doesnt.
