About this title


Nathaniel Branden, author of The Psychology of Self-Esteem, is a revolutionary psychological theorist and a distinguished practicing therapist. This book is the story of his discovery of a new method for rapidly uncovering the childhood origins of a negative self concept, through a list of questions calculated to break the barrier of repression and to bring to light the early experiences that fostered a view of oneself as immoral or ineffectual or mediocre or helpless or worthless. Further, it is the story of the liberating power of these questions, told by means of dramatized case histories that have explosive relevance to the overwhelming majority of readers. Mr. Branden writes: "I have always been keenly aware of the drama inherent in the therapeutic process. It was fascinating to watch my clients efforts to think clearly despite acute suffering, their abrupt digressions into irrelevancies, the sudden eruptions of emotional violence, the relapses into passivity and resignation, then the resurrection of their desire to fight, to break their chains, to burst forth. This is the drama I invite the reader to share with me." (from the dust jacket)

Store Description

I operated a used bookstore in Davis, California, from 1985-1992 (Berry's Books), then moved to Mendocino, and have been selling used books on the internet since 1998. Middletown CA is my new home, and the air here is ideal for book preservation (low humidity). I am a jack of all trades, master of none, which lends itself well to the book trade. I currently have 19,000 books online in 160 different subject categories. The inventory is regularly updated online, so if you see it listed, there is a 99+% chance that I can mail it by the next business day.
