Format: Paperback
"What a great book! Taking 50 self help classics and puting the core message of each author of some 250-400 page books into 3-5 pages is no easy feat. But Tom has done exactly that.
What makes this book so remarkable is the author's style of elequent writing. He takes the core message of each author and presents it to you in a clear, consise and extremly focused manner.
I am always searching for "good stuff" on self improvement. Tom has done a great service and a teriffic job of sifting through hundreds of books on personal development to share only a select few that have become true classics.
As a published author of a book on self motivation, this book is: Motivating!"

Format: Paperback
Tom Butler-Bowdon has put together a superb collection of short reviews of self-help books here. Although I had read many of the featured authors already, there is such a broad range in the chosen 50 that I suspect most other seasoned self-help readers would benefit as I did. For beginners and those curious about the self-help publishing phenomenon, this could indeed be "the only self-help book you will ever need" as they say!
The brief summaries of each book and writer are balanced, intelligent and insightful. The "in a nutshell" comments are invariably accurate e.g. "When you are aligned with your higher self and your life purpose, miraculous things happen" for "Real Magic" by Wayne Dyer. Butler-Bowdon also presents the case for and against each book and writer, being more obviously critical of some than others, but remaining open and balanced with his objective assessments.
The inclusion of the Bible, the Bhagavad-Gita and Benjamin Franklin's autobiography stretches the "self-help" genre beyond obvious modern writers and adds depth. 50 more books are recommended at the end. Excellent, thanks Tom!

Really good read - the author cuts through thousands of pages to ive you bite-sized info saving you time & money. Now I want to go and read some of the books he summarises and think I'll get their points much more quickly & clearly with my new knowledge of the field!
