Two Great Self-Help Books

In brief, let me recommend two especially good and (I think) effective self-help/psychology books I've read recently:

The first is Excess Baggage: Getting Out of Your Own Way, by Judith Sills, who happens to be the author of another very helpful book I really like, A Fine Romance.

The second is Taking Responsibility: Self-Reliance and the Accountable Life, by Nathaniel Branden, author of many renowned books on self-esteem.

Both authors hold PhD's in psychology. Both cut to the chase. Both hold you accountable without the TV-clipped talk of a "doctor" like Dr. Phil. This ain't no party, this ain't no disco, this ain't no foolin' around... this ain't no easy 30 minute TV slot.

These are two exceptionally well-written and insightful tools to help you make changes you might want to make.

I can't recommend books more highly.

Cheers - and cherish CHANGE for the better!

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the letter, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
