Who's the book for? Anyone who wants to improve their self-esteem.

What's the goal of the book? To improve your self-esteem.

How does it do this? By showing you how to disarm your "inner critic", you know, that negative inner voice that attacks and judges you. Everyone has one, and people with low self-esteem tend to have a more vicious inner critic.

Is it easy to read? Yes, the book is laid out well and written in a very friendly tone. The first three chapters cover the most important and universally applicable information. After finishing them, there is a chart for you to look at. It will direct you to the appropriate chapter(s) that deal with your specific problems. Neat!

You don't have to read the book cover-to-cover unless you just need general info- but that's what's good about it; you can use the book to fit your individual needs. With over 600,000 copies sold, it must have helped a few people! Good luck!

Content -A+ Mechanics - C- Spelling errors, poor punctuation, poor syntax (no pun intended) make it difficult to read. Much seems as if one person dictated, but no one went back through to edit. I find it easier to take a "positon" paper seriously if it is well-written.

    The Best Book

    I was just browsing the book store and saw this book. It called out to me and I now do the exercises in each chapter. This book has taught me so much and has opened my eyes to things that I never even realized. I have recommened it to others. Highly effective !!

    Revealing! May need help...

    Self Esteem is a self-help book for the "regular" person. It is offered as "do-it-yourself" therapy w/o the therapist, although I really feel a therapist would help a great deal in explaining a lot of the reasons the book offers as to why we have such low opinions of ourselves. I needed to re-read the chapters several times to understand some of the concepts, but then, I am not a therapist or psych major who would be more familiar with the reasoning behind these explanations. This is not a quick fix type of book and involves a lot of time and dedication to be successful in building the readers' self-esteem, let alone the constant practicing of the concepts to ensure the concepts "work" and take hold. I think this book would work best for the reader when done in a program with a therapist.
