Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“McKay and Fanning recognize the complexity of the human tendency toward self-criticism. Their carefully written, cognitively oriented self-help book wisely avoids simplistic solutions, offering instead a systematic approach to self-esteem development.”
Robert E. Alberti, PhD, author of Your Perfect Right

“Positive self-esteem is the centerpiece of a healthy personality. McKay and Fanning’s book offers us a valuable storehouse of tactics and strategies for constructing—or renovating—the foundation of our self-esteem.”
Philip G. Zimbardo, PhD, author of Shyness

Self-Esteem is truly a very special title. Good writing is especially necessary for self-help titles. ... I feel a special enthusiasm in bringing it to the notice of our audience.”
The Midwest Book Review

I just checked this out from the library at my college and the introduction alone got me interested. At 19 y.o. (after years of being weighted down by lack of esteem and a sense of self-worth) I'm so excited to read this book, but I'm going to have to purchase it, seeing that it's due back in less than two weeks.

I purchased this but unfortunately it can't be read on iPad or iPhone nook. Wonder if I can get money back.
