Dan Hays
In point of fact, low self-esteem is a serious problem and causes devastating difficulties for some people. But once the trivial press and pop psychologyists got hold of the idea, they soon made it seem like it was a problem "everyone" has, a problem solved by watching self-help tapes or reading thin-in more than one sense-books written by overnight "experts." Now, the concept of low self-esteem seems like a form of psychobabble. But it's not. Mariyn J. Sorensen of Portland [Oregon] knows. She is a clinical psychologist, th founder and director of The Self-Esteem Institute. Her new book carefully explains what low self-esteem really is, the history of its treatment (or non-treatment), and why it is so seldom recognized or treated seriously. The closing chapter provides information on how to get help. This is an important book that could save lives.

This is an outstanding resource for anyone who may be suffering from low self-esteem and thinks he could have been misdiagnosed by a mental-health professional. LSE is often passed off by the medical community and general public as a symptom of similar and more accepted disorders, says Sorensen, a clinical psychologist with more than 20 years of private practice. If left unchecked, LSE can lead to depression and social avoidance or, worse, violence and abuse. Identifying LSE is the first step toward resolution, and Sorensen expertly guides readers in self-evaluation. Even mild LSE sufferers will recognize familiar character traits in the hypothetical scenarios, and take comfort in Sorensen's understanding. The author, who often uses "we" to connect with readers, has excellent writing skills and establishes a warm and comfortable tone. While Sorensen identifies the problem of how people view LSE, her focus here is not to find a solution except to say one should be reached. Aside from Sorensen's companion book, Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem, she lists no other references, possibly due to her rejection of how others view LSE.
