Does anyone have any suggestions for a good self-esteem or confidence boosting book? I could use something helpful to read.

Hi I am actually taking a Self-Esteem group.

It seems to be helping me a lot...:)...

Just thought I would share that.

Positive Affirmations also work for me to...

I found a pic on my cell phone works to!

What was the last book that you read and enjoyed? Was it a best seller, a cookbook, fantasy, romance?  Self-help books are just another type of book.  Some of them point out things we know but may need to be reminded of, others not so much. Fulfill your needs.  How's the pet?

Hi Joann,

Can you explain a little more why books don't help? I am new to all this and looking for some answers to how to help my self.

I read so many I eventually gave away the mile-high pile I had NOT read yet.  Books don't do it for me, I need to talk face to face for some reason.  How about checking Dr. Phil's site for some of his books?  He has one called Self Matters, which I've read is just down to earth solid information.  I have yet to disagree with anything this guy has said, so I'd imagine his books could be pretty good.
