5.0 out of 5 stars Very, very highly recommended! 20 Jan. 2010

It's a pity this book is out of print. It is one of Nathaniel's Branden's best; although I highly recommend all of his works, including The Six Pillars of Self Esteem, Honoring the Self and Taking Responsibility. His focus on self-esteem and self-responsibility are never esoteric but are firmly seated in reality and experience from his many years of practice. The book was one huge "Aha" moment for me, especially in relation to dealing with emotions. It is short, sweet and very powerful - if you are willing and able to take a look at yourself and are interested in making changes that will empower you and your relationships.

5.0 out of 5 stars So far SSOOO GOOOD! 23 Feb. 2013

In a world where things are starting to fall apart..... what am I saying, they are already falling apart. But I guess I just want to make sense of this world and it starts with me understanding my SELF. Thats what this book is. Our SELF. Our beautiful human individuality were so afraid of. That thing thats been crushed and maimed when we were children. And now what we must confront, understand, and dust off to gain an understanding of the world around us and our SELF. And become truly free!!!

By the way Michael Tsarion reccomended this book to me. If you guys like, you can check him and his work out. He has several lectures and interviews on youtube and has written books that im sure are available here on amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Rosetta Stones of Popular, Post-Freudian Psychology? 17 Aug. 2011
By Not Moses - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Less well-known than his series on self-esteem, this is -- from a school-trained point of view -- very possibly Branden's most insightful volume. Branden was among the first graduates of West LA's California Graduate Institute, which was, at the time, considered as cutting edge with respect to behaviorism and even cognitivism as it was grounded in psychoanalysis and post-Freudian psychodynamic (object relations) psychotherapy. Essentially his doctoral dissertation, this book builds on the work Branden had done in his best-selling =The Psychology of Self-Esteem= (1968). Together, these two books had a very significant influence on the direction of popular literature on the causes and conditions of neurotic-level psychopathology for the next 30 years. In no small part because the guy had a knack for translating the obscure and abstruse verbiage of object relations theory into plain English. If one wonders about the bridges later authors like John Bradshaw, Charles Whitfield, Janet Gerringer-Woititz, Claudia Black, Melody Beattie, Pia Mellody and Susan Forward had to cross to write their own classics, one can find at least some of those bridges right here.
