The Last Self-Help Book You'll Ever Need by Paul Pearsall

This book is no ordinary self-help book. It will not help you to become thin, to be healthy, to be happy, to live life to the fullest, to enjoy life and so on. These are among the common topics for many self-help books out there. In this book, Paul Pearsall criticised the self-help industry and he pointed out some weaknesses of the self-help industry. In one particular part in the book, he wrote "They call to children, to the elderly, to ethnic minorities, and to every conceivable sexual oreintation..despite the hundreds of guranteed programs designed to help us discover our full potential and lead wonderful lives, most of us still languish in the doldrums or think we're not as happy as we should be." For me, there are some parts of his view on the self-help industry that I do not agree. Although self-help books might or might not be able to fully transform some people but reading those self-help books will give them some ideas on how to transform or improve themselves. This book is interesting to read and I would give it a 2 out of 5. Maybe this is the last self-help book you'll ever need.
