The Self-Esteem Workbook
Glenn R. Schiraldi
New Harbinger Publications
I highly recommend this. I am someone who knew I needed a little help with my self-confidence/esteem, but it wasn't something that was debilitating. I just knew I wasn't reaching my potential, and it was because I seemed to be sabotaging myself and holding myself back. I can't afford therapy, so I thought I would get a book to work through and see if that helped. All people considering buying ...
Nudge: Improving Decisions About Health, Wealth, and Happiness
Yale University Press, 2008
At first I squirmed at the authors' idea of "libertarian paternalism." But they made a compelling case about how government, when it designs systems, affects people's choices and why not do it in a way that makes people better off. I think there is less argument on what makes people better than most think. Very few can argue people are worse off if they: save more, smoke less, exercise more, ...

The Memory Book: The Classic Guide to Improving Your Memory at Work, at School, and at Play
There is nothing wrong with my memory?
I have always had major problems remembering names, places and things in general really. So when it was recommended by a great mentor of mine as a 'must have' book, I thought "Why not". From the very beginning when they show you how to 'remember' things, it's been WOW. It actually makes sense when you think about it - the process that is. The 'this is how you remember things' process. AND ...

The Art of Putting: The Revolutionary Feel-Based System for Improving Your Score
Gotham Books, 2007
Roll 'em and Hole 'em
This book completely revolutionized my putting. After a very short time convincing myself that swinging the putterhead square to the swing arc would work, it took hold. I am very confident in my putting now. The amazing thing is that my distances seemed to just come natural. Another outstanding benefit is that this concept of keeping the clubhead square to the swing arc helped my full swing ...
Self-Esteem: A Proven Program of Cognitive Techniques for Assessing, Improving, and Maintaining Your ...

Excellent self-help book
I'm a psychotherapist. This is one of the best self-help books I've read. The authors are extremely knowledgeable, the book is very well written and unusually well organized, and the exercises are based on solid, evidence-based cognitive therapy principles and techniques. It is unusual to find a book that is both based on serious psychotherapy concepts and at the same time easy to read and ...
Children: The Challenge : The Classic Work on Improving Parent-Child Relations--Intelligent, Humane & ...
Children: The Challenge
Children, The Challenge is the closest thing to a parenting handbook that I have found this lifetime. You will need to read it twice. The first time you read it, you will hit yourself over the head with it thinking, "These ideas are so simple. Why didn't I think of them?" The second time through, the concepts really sink in. Simple, easy direction for the layperson trying to understand how to ...

Got some good advice here.
This is, obviously, a classic realtionship guide that has been out for several years. I've just now come across it and have to say, I liked it. I thought the advice was spot on and real. Some might think it was old-fashioned, but I liked it and learned quite a lot.

Can't do without it!
I lost this book and missed it so much I bought it again! This is an essential element to building a woman's closet. Every 5 yrs or so I clean everything out and this helps to ensure that I have the essentials. The book doesn't get hung up in trends so the advice is not dated. Wonderful book!
Diagnosing and Changing Organizational Culture: Based on the Competing Values Framework
An excellent and practical book on a very elusive concept. Provides a 'model' to diagnose and shape organisational culture. A CD/DVD or web address where the questionnaires could be accessed from would have been great, though.

Everything Counts: 52 Remarkable Ways to Inspire Excellence and Drive Results
Thoughtful and Inspiring...
As an entrepreneur, I read at least 5 books a month on business, health and motivation. What I really like about Gary's book is he looks at 3 areas of achievement: professional, personal and universal. Each theme within these categories is not hard to grasp, for example: Consistency. If you are not consistent in your habits and thoughts, how do expect to get consistent results? He really makes ...
Become a Better You: 7 Keys to Improving Your Life Every Day
Great read even for the non-religious
What I love about Joel Osteen's books and sermons is that they are joyful, optimistic, often humorous and preach without being "preachy." He has a real gift and charisma when it comes to the simple solutions to a happy life. Along with his book "It's Your Time," I find myself reading and re-reading a few pages at a time...to sort of "top off my tank" with spiritual affirmation. If you want to ...
