  • A Brief Guide To Self-Help Classics1 cover page

    A Brief Guide To Self-Help Classics


    From Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People, published in 1936, which has sold over 30 million copies to date, to the mind management programme of Professor Steve Peters’ The Chimp Paradox, a concise and insightful guide to seventy of the most influential self-help books ever published

    An entertaining, accessible companion, for readers of self-help books and sceptics alike. The titles include classics on achieving success, confidence and happiness, mindfulness, how to change your life, self-control, overcoming anxiety and self-esteem issues and stress relief.

    The chronological arrangement of the titles reveals the intriguing story of how early self-improvement titles were succeeded by increasingly personality-based, materialistic titles and shows how breakout classics often influenced other titles for decades to come. Each book is summarised to convey a brief idea of what it has to offer the interested reader, while a ‘Speed Read’ for each book delivers a quick sense of what each writer is like to read and a highly compressed summary of the main points of the book in question.

    This is a work of reference to dip into, that acknowledges that some of the most powerful insights into ourselves can be found in texts that aren’t perceived as being ‘self-help’ books, and that wisdom and consolation can be found in the strangest places.

    Be A Triangle


    We need to create a home to return to. And when I say home, I’m not talking about a physical place or somewhere where pants are optional. I’m talking about a set of beliefs after a day full of, well, anything.

    We need to dig a foundation so deep that it will exist and thrive even if our surface-level efforts fail.’Ever wondered what the point of all those school maths lessons about triangles was? Youtuber and comedian Lilly Singh has finally discovered the answer: triangles are the perfect model for building your self-esteem and getting to know your own values. Triangles have a strong base, they’re hard to knock-over and always retain their own shape, even when they grow. With her incomparable sense of humour and fun, Lilly explains how she has put the ethos of the triangle to work in her own life, and shows how you can do the same.

    Complete with playful illustrations and inspiring ideas, this book is like a best friend cheering you on as you find your purpose and get to know yourself.
