I like reading self-help books. In the past three years or so I’ve been doing so I came across different kinds of advice — some are good, some are not, while some are within the realm of common sense.
At first I was naive — I believe everything every author who looks credible has to say. But I kept reading books (and blogs), even those outside self-help — since then I learned to think critically.
Those books I’m most critical are those that have the words ‘Success’ somewhere in their title. Don’t get me wrong, you can still find value in those books. That’s bring us to the question — can self-help books really teach people the secret of success? Larry Winget, one of my favorite authors/speakers talks about it in this short video.
