For some people the advent of these books has been a godsend. For other people
these books have propelled them along a line of successive failure.
Take the example of Amy*, whose living room bookcases are packed wiith the“Self-Help” genre. Unfortunately Amy’s story is a sad one, but highlights the problems
encountered by a great deal of people trying to cure themselves of many self-defeating habits.
How the journey began…
The first time Amy popped her head into a self-help book she was overwhelmed at
the possibilities the book suggested. If the cover wasn’t exciting enough, the index read like a roadmap to life renewal. Every phrase spelt out clearly that success could be hers for the taking, as long as she didn’t miss a beat and stuck rigidly to the program!
