I don’t know about you, but self-help and personal development literally saved my life. Having been evicted from my home and losing my last automobile among other things, I shudder to think where I could have turned if it hadn’t been for self-help.
Now along comes some hungry author (who didn’t have any problem when he himself was making money in self-help) and writes a book called “SHAM: How the Self-Help Movement Made America helpless.” Fortunately, when CNN’s Anderson Cooper interviewed him, he got another opinion from Mark Victor Hansen, co-creator of the famed Chicken Soup series. And Mark did an incredible job in the interview demonstrating how self help/personal development is serving the greater good of humanity.
The book should be re-titled SHAME, and it’s all on Steve Salerno, who helps no one but himself.
