Counter-productive in the extreme, 25 Dec. 2008
This book is a waste of money. It does not suggest any techniques that might help people with poor self-esteem to develop a sense of inner strength and self-worth. Instead, it promotes a total reliance on getting emotional validation from others. This is an extremely unhealthy approach, especially since people with poor self-esteem generally are excessively preoccupied with other people's opinion in the first place. It is painfully clear that Ms Lindenfield does not in fact have any professional expertise in this area. Don't buy this book.
