TQOTD - Self Help Books?

Right now, I'm currently reading a super interesting book titled, "Smart Women Finish Rich". It's basically a self-help book that will teach me the right ways to handle my money and make sure I retire one rich old lady :)

But I also remember a few years back when "The Secret" was the hot new book out there - also another self-help title. So it got me thinking....

So this Thursday's Question of the Day: Have you ever read a self-help book? What are your thoughts on them?



  1. I don't read self help books. Though I could probably benefit from one. My problem is, if it doesn't have a story, I get bored.

  2. I actually bought a bunch of self help books on writing & financial stuff. I've never looked at them since I bought them lol. Bad right?

  3. Not self-help books per say, but I really like reading books about the mind like Norman Doidge's "The Brain that changes itself" or Daniel Pink's "The Whole Mind" which is about the importance of right brain thinkers (creatives) in our society.

    Books like these remind me that our brain is capable of incredible change and great feats and that all kinds of thinkers are important to a thriving society. I guess the self-help part is that this motivates me when I feel overwhelmed by continuing cuts to the arts or just trying to sustain a writing career.
