Publisher's Summary

A Life Changing Program for Personal Growth!

How you feel about yourself crucially affects virtually every aspect of your life, especially how high in life you are likely to rise. Who and what you think you are shape all your responses. Self-esteem, therefore, becomes the key to success or failure. It is also the key to understanding yourself and others.

In this outstanding audio program, the pioneering psychotherapist, Dr. Nathaniel Branden, details for you - in easy-to-understand language - the action, both mental and physical, you can take to advance your self-esteem and he self-esteem of others. His recommended strategies for building self-esteem have been thoroughly tested with the many thousands he has helped during his 30 years as a psychotherapist.

You learn specific exercises and behaviors that will raise your self-esteem. You discover how to:

  • Experience more joy in the sheer fact of being.
  • Implement the four-step process that frees you from guilt.
  • Gain insightful information that usually lies beyond your ordinary consciousness.
  • Enhance your chances of forming relationships that are nourishing instead of destructive.
  • “Live consciously” - the foundation for self-respect and self-confidence.
  • Become more innovative, rather than ritualistic or tradition-bound, in your work.
  • Expand the creative and spiritual areas of your life
  • And much, much more!

One of the best books on self esteem

This author gets a lot of flak for being associated with Ayn Rand, known as she is for highly individualistic selfishness. However, if anything, I feel that if one follows all tenets in this book, one would go on to become a very even keeled, rational, solid and humanitarian human being. I found it an incredibly positive book, that sets out to give a person some great foundation on which to build their self esteem rather than frivolous and 'cute' ideas.

Not for me.

Would you try another book written by Nathaniel Branden or narrated by Nathaniel Branden?

No thanks.

Any additional comments?

Everyone has a different opinion but i personally found this very very dull and absolutely zero help. All the advice felt patronising and cliched. Not for me, sorry!

Simply The Best.....accept no substitute.

I first read Nathaniel Branden's work in 1984. I have since read other books with self esteem in the title, most of which were along the lines of ... 'you can only have self esteem ..... if other people like you...' and this, writtten, sometimes explicitly, sometimes hidden. I realise that some people need the approval of others, almost like an addiction, or a child's need, but theirs is a mind set to be overcome. Brandon writes for adults, seeking adult solutions, not spoilt brat evasives looking for some collective social cult to belong to. Brandon writes clear, exact, fact oriented, well thought out, practical material that relates to the issue in hand. It's great stuff, and has helped me, in my journey through life to live and improve my social and motivational skills in many areas. I can't recommend his writing highly enough. It's Excellent.

Mind = blown

This book spoke to me on every single part of my being, some of the descriptions and concepts and examples he was giving was almost like he knew who I was and what I needed to do in my life. It's been an eye opening experience.

Best value and best practical guidance available

As Dr Brandon states, we must:
DO the exercises, at intervals.
DO the exercises, at intervals.
Note: Listen out for the very end of this recording, as there are resources to take up, so to keep us shored up and on track to personal, professional, and financial success.
Thank you, Dr N Brandan RIP
