Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The quality alone of this self-help book justifies Branden's (The Psychology of Self-Esteem, LJ 2/1/70; The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem, LJ 2/1/94) status as an expert on the subject of self-esteem. Here he further examines the role that self-esteem plays in how one accepts responsibility for one's actions. Clearly and concisely, Branden gives good examples of specific areas of concern, such as parental problems or problems with work. Sound advice is dispensed in both psychological and sociological terms. Most readers looking for a good self-help volume will find this one useful. Recommended for public libraries and subject collections.-Priscilla Davis Dann, Cuyahoga Cty. P.L., Ohio
