How to Raise Your Self-Esteem : The Proven Action-Oriented Approach to Greater Self-Respect and Self-Confidence

Booklist


From Booklist, Copyright (c) American Library Association. Used with permission.

This is the seventh book by popular, California-based psychologist Nathaniel Branden in which he promotes his theory of self-esteem. Like his earlier works, including Honoring the Self (Booklist 80:927 Mr 1 84), this one discusses the components of healthy self-esteem, uses personal anecdotes and brief case histories to illus-[FJ]trate it in action, and relies on Branden's trademark series of wide-ranging sentence-completion exercises to help readers get in touch with thoughts and feelings that may be blocking the pursuit of actions that would enhance self-esteem. Fans will appreciate the greater practicality of this work over the others, emphasizing as it does the day-to-day behavior that can help individuals break away from negativity. We also see a clearer influence here of rational-emotive and cognitive-therapeutic models on Branden's thinking. Though the author's message is a bit overexposed and his presentation tends to ramble, the book will still be of interest to self-help fans, particularly those whose self-esteem hasn't been sufficiently buoyed by the earlier books.

Branden, psychotherapist and specialist in the field of self-esteem psychology, here offers a ``how-to'' follow-up to his popular Honoring The Self (Tarcher, 1984) that gives a detailed account of the importance of self-acceptance in human existence. Intended for use without the aid of a psychotherapist, Branden's book shows that there are many paths to self-esteem, as exemplified by accounts culled from his own private-practice files. A series of progressive self-exploration exercises gives us most of the ingredients necessary to reverse completely our negative self-assessments. Among them, living consciously, without guilt, and with authenticity receive top billing. Recommended for general as well as professional psychology collections.Robert L. Jaquay, William K.
