The product was pretty run down - the pages are yellow and I think the book might fall apart in a year or two. But the price justifies it I guess.
Another problem (which might be a postal service issue) is that it took 2 months for this book to arrive. That's way too slow.

This book is excellent. It breaks down the causes and aspects that lead to low self-esteem in women i.e. society, work experiences, childhood experiences, personal relationships, body image, media, spirituality, etc.
In addition, there are extremely helpful, simple exercises one can do anywhere to start reversing these effects and gain self-esteem.
I recommend this book to both men and women -- it just covers it all!!!

This audio book really helps women understand themselves. The author explains how the little voice inside your head so to speak formed and how the internal dialogue shapes how you view the world and how you are seem by others.
