Publisher's Summary

In The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem, Nathaniel Branden presents the culminating achievement of a lifetime of clinical practice and research. In this penetrating and provocative program, he conclusively demonstrates the importance of self-esteem in our quest for psychological health, personal achievement, and positive relationships. "Yet how do we gain true self-esteem?" Dr. Branden introduces the six pillars of self-esteem - six action-based practices for daily living. Here for the first time are simple but powerful exercises for increasing personal awareness and effectiveness. Exploring the importance of self-esteem in the workplace, parenting, education, psychotherapy, and society, Dr. Branden provides guidelines for those responsible for fostering self-esteem in others - and shows why a culture of self-esteem is imperative for survival in the 21st century.

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......

Not very motivational

High expectations

The book was not very engaging nor motivational, too scholastic and dry as presentation.

The ideas are on another hand precious and useful, would apply some.

Informative but dull

I can see how this may help people develop there own self esteem and others around them. However I think the book may have been better than the audio as unfortunately I found Brandan's voice tedious.

Old fashioned

Any additional comments?

It was written many years ago and the author even passed away a few years ago, so you need to understand this is very very old fashioned and therefore mostly outdated advice.

Avoid.

Not great

Prefer the book over the audio version. Not sufficient details as in the actual book. The book is really good and I recommend the book.

lots of words for delivered content

admittedly many books are like this. To do all exercises every day I think would take more time than I have.
