Do you think that self improvement books work for the reader? There are so many books available in the market dealing with making the life of the general masses simple. Is not it a waste of time because these books have no value at the end of day, I mean your intellectual capacity is not going to increase by reading these books.

I have read a lot of selfhelp books, and some of them have been very useful for me, others have been boring or a waste of time. At first I was reading "ordinary" selfhelp books, but after a while I got interested in the spiritual self help books, and I started reading many new age books. My favourite authors are Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Stuart Wilde. I especially like the books written by Wayne Dyer, and most of them have been really useful for me.

There are also a lot of finance related book, particularly "how to get rich by..." books. Most of them are based on the same concept, written in different ways to help readers understand the concept. I think it's good that we have a choice of many books. One book may change the life of A, but no effect on B. The next book may help B. Sometimes just by reading the experience of someone who had been through what we are going through can make deeper impression on us, and thus help us in a way.

Hi there Rashmie! With different self-improving or self-help books sprouting around like mushrooms, I think they are effective. I think that even though there will be other factors, the majority would probably buy these books because of their effectiveness.
