Promoting your book once is one thing, doing it several times is just plain annoying and actually puts me off.

"stuck in a pattern of struggle" that is exactly you! Advertising your book once,twice and even 3 times could be okay in the SAME forum thread. You do it every other post! Either you still need help and you should read your own book. Or it is so worthless no one will buy it unless you can fool someone it is not self-promotion. Could also be that you read the book, but it didn't work and you are still stuck in obsessive behaviour.

I will buy some of these books, but certainly not yours. Cant trust a wierdo to help a wierdo now can I?

How about James Allen's As A Man Thinketh? This 1902 classic is available for free at several locations on the web (it's now in the public domain). Although written over a century ago, it remains one of the most perennially relevant and highly concentrated books of wisdom ever written. Some samples of Allen's observations make the enduring nature of his book apparent: "Circumstance doesn't make the man, it reveals him," and "Men do not attract what they want, but who they are." Every page of the book is packed with powerful insights and revelations about the need for disciplined thought. More modern versions of Allen's message can be found in two other short but powerful little books: Randy Pausch's The Last Lecture and the book version of David Foster Wallace's 2005 commencement address at Kenyon College entitled This Is Water: Some Thoughts, Delivered on a Significant Occasion, about Living a Compassionate Life. This last may seem a strange recommendation for self-help in light of Wallace's suicide, but the tragic fact that his own enormous talent and insight were ultimately unequal to his despair does nothing to dilute the power and truth of his words. Hope that helps!
Oh yeah, and you might enjoy my book, too.

Lets imagine for a minute that you are the one with issues.
Denial: You put off any accusations by blaming others to have the issues.
Obsessive: You post everywhere about your book, linking it 20 times, and even start your own thread about it.
Delusional: You think spamming the forum will help your cause.

I dont have anger issues, I have right-issues. Im always trying to make things around me correct. Now I found something wrong.
Actually I have one final theory: If you dont have those issues, you must be doing this on purpose and then you are just a bad person trying to cheat ppl for money.
Let me know if anything struck right on. Also feel free to analyze me, I don't mind the "game".

Why is the persistent bookreviewer person now calling themselves "Library Acquisitions Collection Development"?
