This new edition of the original text reveals how Nathaniel Branden's landmark book broke the rules of conventional behavioral theory and promulgated his revolutionary ideas on the critical role that self-esteem plays in living a healthy, fulfilling life. The book offers an in-depth exploration of the need for self-esteem, the nature of that need, the conditions of fulfillment, and how self-esteem (or lack of it) affects our values, responses, and goals. Branden also debunks the misguided notion that self-esteem is a "feel-good phenomenon" and shows instead how self-esteem, rationality, perseverance, self-responsibility, and personal integrity are all intimately related.
This edition includes a new epilogue, Working with Self-Esteem in Psychotherapy, in which Branden presents his more recent thinking on the topic of self-esteem. As a testament to his own theories, Branden has spent four decades working as a psychotherapist guiding clients who constantly test his ideas about self-esteem. In all, this publication reveals how the basic conceptual structure presented in The Psychology of Self-Esteem is as relevant today as the book was when it was first published in 1969.
Nathaniel Branden is the author of many books on self-esteem including the perennially best-selling The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (1995), A Woman's Self-Esteem (Jossey-Bass, 1998), and Self-Esteem at Work (Jossey-Bass, 1998). He is also the author of the memoir My Years with Ayn Rand (Jossey-Bass, 1999).

This book is a little more complicated for the average person because it goes into a lot of great detail about how self-esteem works and uses a lot of professional language. Read morePublished on May 25, 2013 by Elaine Steelman
