Over a 10-year period, entrepreneur, writer, former City-banker and financial journalist Robert Kelsey read scores of self-help books in an effort to overcome the low self-esteem that was driving his debilitating fear of failure. Becoming something of a self-help addict, he found that, while helpful, nearly all the books lacked two vital ingredients. First, was an honesty about the personality traits they were trying to change - indeed their changeability. Second, was a programme for progress that took account of the innate fears, insecurities and flawed thinking of those with a high fear of failure. WHAT'S STOPPING YOU? is the result.
