The genius of this benchmark work continues to shine through today, and its message continues to be of critical importance as we enter the 21st century. The Psychology of Self-Esteem presents a brilliant concept of the intertwining of human nature, mental health and illness, and the conditions necessary for the achievement of mental well-being.
Here is the work that provided the genesis for so many concepts that today we take for granted. Here is an accessible, clear explanation of the true meaning of self-esteem, the relation of reason and emotion, the nature of free will, and the powerful impact of self-esteem on motivation, work, friendship, sex, and romantic love. This classic work is fresh, contemporary, and as vital and powerful as the day it was written. It remains a revolutionary contribution to man's understanding of himself.

"Nathaniel Branden will undoubtedly rank as one of the great psychologists of the 20th century." (Colin Wilson, author of The Outsider)
This book gives an amazing insight into the processes and actions that lies behind the development of self-esteem in a person (Not a self-help book).
Sometimes I have some difficulty focusing my attention on the books I listen to as I am usually at work, this one didn't lose me at any point.
Absolutely a recommended listen.
"Intellectually Written Text Book"
If you need a text book on deep, psychological aspects of self esteem, then this is the book for you. I was disappointed with the whole over all feel of the book and was looking for something a little less wordy and easier to listen to.
"Hard to follow for us common folk"
This book is probably easier to follow if you're a college professor. Sounds like there's good content, I will just have to listen to it a few more times to understand it.
"foundational, and brilliant"
The psychology and philosophy in this program is not just another flavour of self help. This workl deals with the nature of man, and what it means to live successfully as a human being. Self-esteem is only a part of this - an indispensable part to be sure, but only a part nonetheless. Buy this audio, listen to it, consider it, and listen to it again... and again... until the full implications are clear to you. This is brilliant brilliant work and the philisophy behind this holds the key IMO to successful survival of the human species. I'm not exaggerating. Forget the bible - we need this more. Enjoy!
Nathaniel Branden is the foremost expert in self-esteem. He explains what self-esteem is, why it's important, and how to improve it. Something that teachers, parents and the government are only able to pay lip service to.
"Read this book before any other on self esteem."
In order to fully grasp and understand any other book on self esteem, this one MUST be read first.
Not an easy listen but amazing content.
Some of his other works.
Not that type of book.
Not that type of book.
