The Feeling Good Handbook has. It's by David Burns.<br><br>
I'm poking around some of John Bradshaw's books currently. I'm not sure about the long term effect on me though. His writing leaves a slightly new-age-y aftertaste in my mouth. His idea of "mystification" is intriguing.

I would have to say the AA Big Book. Took me from the Jack Daniels shit faced drunk to Jack Daniels running formula. I would say that has to be a profound life change. Larry

There is big money to be made in self-help books. Whether or not they help anyone. . .that's up in the air. But if you have an occasion to write one, you can do very well with that!

That's what I was thinking.<br><br>
"Suck it up slacker - the world doesn't care about you" would be too short and doesn't give the warm fuzzies that most self help books give.

Good point. For some reason when I was thinking about the The Big Book didn't occur to me. It doesn't strike me as a self help book any more than the Bible does.<br><br>
And no, I'm not equating the two; I'm just drawing a comparison.
