I have not read this book, and yes I have read others.
They do have certain value,even if it is one little part of the book....that you can implement into your life, as help.
I think they are also other people's 'ideas' how they made it through.
There is a place for these books, you just have to find the right one.
There is nothing worse than 'thinking', no one else has had to deal with life's hardships,that all is lost.
Self help books certainly do have their rightful place.
