After all this time, i have never understood why they call it "self help book".
if you're looking for self help, why would you read a book written by somebody else? that's not self help. that's help.

Self-help books enable you to help yourself by suggesting techniques that you can try which have been proven to work for other people.
Sometimes it can be useful to try ideas you wouldn't otherwise have considered.

Little Teal Book of Trust by Jeffrey Gitomer is a good one for a library. :)

I just happened to see the title of one of those type of books in the book shop today...
"101 ways to forget about your ex... " and in small "... and find a new one quick" Or similar anyway, with a heart and two crossed bones as if it were a skull :P
Haven't actually read any books of this sort though.
Ah, found the cover: 101 ways...

It's a book written in the 1950s called "TNT - The Power Within You".

I love self-help books! I grab at them all the time. Nothing that really applies to me, but I love learning about different things people experience. One of my first favorites is "my husband is gay" which explains the various reason why gay men marry women and sometimes start families. And why some women accept it. I love books geared to helping the eating disordered, OCD sufferers, people with body dysmorphia... It's all so interesting!!!!

a reason for being self-help
Are you into semantics?
I think most of us would easily reach out to
But, what if, we read a book that we found
