Self-Help may be a trendy buzzword but the long overdue cultural shift to considering it necessary rather than selfish has been hugely welcome.
Though obviously no replacement for counselling and medication when mental illness is heavily impacting on your life, the best self-help books can lend a helping hand to the many of us left feeling overwhelmed and exhausted by life in our stressed-out, modern society by kindly - and often humourously - offering practical advice that encourages us to look after ourselves better.
You interpret yourself and the world more positively.
You're inspired to make better choices and take positive actions more often.

You smash through your limitations.
You create personal projects that rocket your growth.
Starting is simple, and only takes the commitment to begin.
