5.0 out of 5 stars Every human should read this book Oct. 20 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't say enough about how reading this book changed my life.
I have read several of Branden's other books as well as his audio tapes (which I also highly recommend). Without overdoing the hyperbole, this book has been the single most important positive phenomenon in my life. I have read MANY self-help books, but none have given me more access to myself or allowed me to liberate myself more.
The writing is dense, but never overwhelming. Sometimes a single paragraph would occupy my mind for hours as 'the lights would come on'. Branden is brilliant. I have read the book 3 times over the past 2 years and have bought about a dozen copies (even in Spanish) for friends.
He has some fairly strong thoughts regarding some religions that might put some people on the defensive, but there is truth in what he says.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it. Jan. 24 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've bought a lot of copies of this book- the first, twenty years ago, for myself, and the rest for friends.
The message is simple and straightforward, and it's the same one Branden has been repeating for a long time. It's about taking responsibility for your life, and learning to value what's good about yourself. It might change you life.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Not a typical book on self-esteem as any reader of
Nathaniel Branden's books will attest. This was the first theoretical book I read of Branden's. I was first introduced to this amazing author's work in his action-oriented _How to Raise Your Self-Esteem_.

There is no exaggerating in saying _Honoring the Self_ is life-changing in it's psychological and philsophical implications. It explains so much in terms of what self-esteem actually is and how it can be understood to affect any life pursuit or relationship you can imagine. The most important pursuit and relationship being one's happiness and self-actualization. Chapters on fear and guilt inspire self-exploration to depths we often neglect.

The final section of the book offers a brief summary of the philosophical and political foundations necessary for a society of self-esteem. From an ethics of rational self-interest to a political economic system of free markets, this section is sure to provoke a re-thinking of some of your cherished beliefs.

It is an excellent foundation for further research into self-esteem, philosophy and economics. However, if your primary interest is just self-esteem, the author's _The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem_ would be your next rewarding read.

It is rare that a book will seem new and fresh with every read, but _Honoring the Self_ does just that. Read it twice, thrice, as many times as you can before it falls apart. Then buy another copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece Oct. 27 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In the early 90's, after I decided to go on a self-actualization quest, I gratefully discovered Nathaniel Branden.
And I read 9 of his books, within the same year, as I documented everyday, whatever came to my mind.
Recently, I had the pleasure of scanning through those old documents. I am so very happy to have read his books.
Looking back, the most important thing that I believe that I learned, in reading this book, my favorite amongst those that I have read by Branden, requires me to preface this by saying that I grew up in an environment where thinking for yourself was punishable in the worst of ways.
The point in which I picked up Branden's books, and this one in particular was when I told myself that those childhood messages were "junk."
I knew that through reading books there were some answers that I had decided that I couldn't find any other place.
I gained from reading this book, to recognize the difference between what I want and what I need.
That marked a huge step in my life's journey. Because then I had to study what kept me from owning those 2 basic parts of being human.
I learned through reading this book to not only look at my history, but to also explore who everyone in my life was, and who they are now - I became a scientist in a human lab, prepared to own, admit, experience and express my feelings, in the present moment.
And oh did this become comfortable.
Read this book to speak through your authentic voice.
It will require you to be patient with yourself, and to parent yourself in a way that you have never been parented before.
Honor everything about who you are, the "good," "bad," and in between.
Ask youself who gave those labels to you. Then ask youself if those are the labels that fit you now.
You will come to enjoy the journey of being here for the purposes of why you are sent here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pinnacle in Psychology June 18 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is one of Branden's masterpieces. A truly profound work in his field. Branden's insights hinge on knowing ourselves. Although this somewhat Delphic oracle sounds simple, Branden develops it very well. The book delves into the way we see ourselves and seeks to get to the root of the word 'self.' When we are alone at 4:00 in the morning and no one else is around - our real, naked, self - the question of who we are and how we see ourselves can begin to be answered.
One of the most profound insights is that some of our seemingly hard-to-solve personal problems with our 'self' can be traced to an undeveloped self within our psyche such as our 'child self.' In our development as a child, for example, if we did not go though completely a natural cycle of development, or if a piece of the development is missing, that particular self may be crying to be completed within us. To get to the root of some of our problems we have to peer into these undeveloped selves and try to reconstruct why it was undeveloped and attempt to relive the event(s) to compensate for the loss in development. Sometimes it is like trying to peel away the layers of an onion - getting to the root of a psychological effect - but the effort is well worth it. I can testify from personal applications of Branden's approach.
This is very well written, rational, easy to read, and based on sound practice from Branden's clinical career.

The author nevers uses one word when three will do. His methods are as simplistic as his prose is dense. Read more
