I'm not sure that "inspiring" is the word I would use for my experience with them but I have certainly had a couple of "lightbulb" moments. One thing I took away from my reading of The Celestine Prophecy was to be more willing to engage with people if you both seemed to have that unspoken urge to communicate. I have found on many occasions that we have had info that the other person was needing. Quite nice really.

Is that the same as a self help book? If so, no, I mostly find them irritating.
I went through what could only be considered a 'disastrous' time in my life in 1987.
I looked into those books, and yes they gave some help....but it really felt quite empty (for me).

I can only talk about my personal experience here, but life for me seem to have no 'good-outcome'.
I had read about ever self help (new-book) on the market, and nothing worked.

But then I picked up one book, and read it (in it's second part)....I then knew I had found help, big time....It's the biggest seller of all time too.

The only personal growth book that comes with a guarantee!

No. They are like fad diets; they work for a while but have little lasting impact.

I cant really say that I have read a lot of personal growth books, so cant answer the question
I guess it depends on the book and on a specific person's life situation. I bought two years ago by a writer called Susan Jeffers - 'Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway' and 'End the Struggle and Dance With Life'. They were both very interesting, and were full of inspirational words about living a more vibrant, positive and fulfilling life. So many people find themselves in a complete rut in their life, and books such as these can often inspire readers to be more creative, loving and dynamic - both in their own lives, and in their relationships.
have not read this kind of book, really not interested in reading them anyway.
I haven't read any personal growth books. I did do a self-help course, though. I found it helpful...

No
Some are good where they offer something new

Same old same old no longer cuts the mustard
Nope!
B O R I N G! as Ruth Buzzi would say.

Maybe they help some people, & that's good, but I've no use for them.
I used to but now no longer have any desire to read them.
