From the moment it was published, The Psychology of Self-Esteem was recognized as a groundbreaking book that challenged and shook the very foundations of psychoanalysis and behaviorism. Dr. Branden's philosophy broke radically with the mainstream contemporary psychology of the time and set a new course for our studies and understanding of ourselves and our deepest natures.

The genius of this benchmark work continues to shine through today, and its message continues to be of critical importance as we enter the 21st century. The Psychology of Self-Esteem presents a brilliant concept of the intertwining of human nature, mental health and illness, and the conditions necessary for the achievement of mental well-being.

Here is the work that provided the genesis for so many concepts that today we take for granted. Here is an accessible, clear explanation of the true meaning of self-esteem, the relation of reason and emotion, the nature of free will, and the powerful impact of self-esteem on motivation, work, friendship, sex, and romantic love. This classic work is fresh, contemporary, and as vital and powerful as the day it was written. It remains a revolutionary contribution to man's understanding of himself.

    " I doubt it will fit everyone but this book was perfect for me. It helped me to understand myself better, put me back "on the rails" and reassure me. Perfect guide written in the manner that "speaks" to me. I can't wait to read more from this author. "

    " Branden uses objectivist philosophy as the basis for a theory of self-esteem. Lots of piercing insight into human psychology all tied together with logical thread. Unnecessarily moralistic in parts, but left me eager to read some of his more focused and mature writings. "

    " I found the book hard to read because of its heavy use of jargon and its philosophical interpretations. I guess reading other books of the author before this one is necessary. "
