Very bad, no help at all, made me feel worse.

What was most disappointing about Dr. Nathaniel Branden’s story?

It was so old fashioned. Full of advice that is now PROVEN to be nonsense and unhelpful, even harmful at times.

What didn’t you like about Dr. Nathaniel Branden’s performance?

Narration was ok I guess, bit dull tho.

Any additional comments?

Not happy at all. Maybe this book was good years ago, but times have changes. It was horribly old fashioned and completely irrelevant. It made me feel worse if anything.

Much better books out there than this.

Like listening to a psych professor but no help.

Spend your money on a book that offers you a way or ways to improve your self esteem. This book simply explains why yours is low.
if that's what you want to know, then this is a good book. Note how many books this author has written on this topic......
