Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erik | 7/14/2013

    " I really liked this one because it's not a typical self help book. It doesn't actually give you any self help pointers, as much as it just gives you a list of other books that will. So I guess in a way, that is teaching you how to help yourself find self help... I already feel better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie | 4/1/2013

    " there are no tips in here-just a list with enough info to help you decide what book to pick up next. i like that it includes things that are not quite "self help" like the bible. it's more of a self development list then self help. "
