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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 2/10/2014

    " This book was brilliant, but could easily have been stopped half way through and I would have understood and accepted the same information. Everyone should read it, but feel free to skip all of part three right into the appendices. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Grant Weaver | 2/2/2014

    " This has been one of my favorite books. It really helped me understand what Self Esteem is, and what it's not. It helps you understand that you can't have too much self esteem. Pride in reality stems from low self-esteem. It really helps clarify the myths of self-esteem, and encourages high values and integrity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Roslyn Ross | 1/28/2014

    " This should be required reading for every high school Freshman and then again for every college Freshman. The world would be a much better place if more people read this book and took its teachings to heart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Katie | 1/24/2014

    " 4.5 Stars if I could. Essential reading - anyone would benefit from reading this book. This isn't a book targeted toward people who view themselves poorly. Chances are your concept of self-esteem isn't accurate... I know what I was taught in school was wayyy off. He defines it and fleshes out the hows and whys. I disagree with his assumptions regarding schooling, but admire the fact that he is hopeful his work on SE could improve the experiences of individuals in institutions such as those. The section on the work place is kind of boring, if only because it isn't relevant to my lifestyle. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 1/17/2014

    " A definitive work on the study of self-esteem, this text certainly gave me pause, and I now have more respect for the concept of self-esteem with all of its pillars (living consciously, self-acceptance, self-responsibility, self-assertiveness, living purposefully, and personal integrity). Interestingly enough, the author was once the lover of Ayn Rand, and one can see some of her philosophical influence in Branden's work. However, I believe he deviates in all the "right" spots. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 1/12/2014

    " They say books can truly change your life. This is one of those books. The core problem with Americans is their lack of true self-esteem. I am not talking about pseudo-self-esteem that so many leftists and progressives. I am talking about a self-esteem built upon knowing your own strengths and weaknesses, being assertive, practicing self-responsibility, living with a purpose, and having integrity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isfand | 1/2/2014

    " Everyone should read this book,it doesnt matter if he has a high self-esteem or not "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ricardo | 12/28/2013

    " This book was very helpful in a time when i was searching for help. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Clay Mabbitt | 12/27/2013

    " Reading this book feels a bit like reading a text book, but I slogged through the academic flavor because I really wanted the information in here. This is easily the most important book I've read this year. Maybe this decade. I wish it had a better flow, but the content is excellent. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Teresa | 11/19/2013

    " If you have ever attempted a goal, but never quite found enough motivation to complete it, then DL this audio. It more about self acceptance and living responsibly, not bullshit mantras. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryon | 9/25/2013

    " Aside from the Libertarian claptrap, the best self-help book ever written. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Cindy Forsberg | 7/13/2013

    " I picked this one up for school on recommendation of my instructor but found it to be quite dry & clinical. I much preferred Branden's A Woman's Self Esteem which returns to the pillars with some writing exercises and uses women for its examples. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robert | 12/17/2012

    " Great for examining your life. Helped me avoid self deception. Great section on raising a child. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jayne Mattson | 12/6/2012

    " Being the founder of self-esteem, Nathaniel Branden's book gave me the foundation of understanding of helping me continue to work on my own, so in turn I can help others. Love it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michael | 11/19/2012

    " This is the ultimate work on self-esteem, which seems to be the underlying key to unlocking a substantial amount and quality of potential. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to figure out what the best ways are to develop integrity, honesty, growth, and self-mastery. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hawkgrrrl | 6/18/2012

    " Almost like a twelve step recovery from being Ayn Rand's lover. But he did have some very interesting and very compassionate points that were a nice contrast to her inspiring yet ultimately impossible expectations of humanity. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 4/7/2012

    " It's an amazing work filled with brilliant, relevant information about human nature. "

    " LOVE IT LOVE IT LOVE IT!!! I love reading about psychology and this book has so many great insights into the mind. Anyone who reads it could pick up on a few things that would improve life. I highly recommend it to people who enjoy reading for education. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 José | 8/15/2011

    " Branden's book is a seminal text in the topic of self-esteem. I particularly enjoyed his analysis of how a society can promote the self-esteem of its members by emphasizing hard work and responsibility. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Charles | 5/14/2011

    " This book helped me alot. It seemed to illuminate some things that I understood deep inside but had never realized consciously. The sentence stems exercises were very illuminating. I still use them years later. "

    " This is not about the cheerleading, we're-all-great "self-esteem" you may remember from elementary school, but about real, complex self-esteem. Very interesting, and I saw shades of Dr. Phil too: dealing with reality, personal integrity, etc. "
