Editorial Reviews


"Brimming with crystalline clarity and the love of truth,Gail Brenner's The End of Self-Help invites us to see through the illusionof the separate self and discover our inherent freedom, wholeness, and wellbeing in the midst of our ordinary lives. This beautifully written booksparkles with vibrant insight." -John J. Prendergast, Ph.D., author of InTouch: How to Tune in to the Inner Guidance of Your Body and Trust Yourself 

"Impressively well written, organized and presented, The End of Self Help is thoroughly 'reader friendly' from beginning to end. As informed and informative as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, The End of Self Help is especially recommended for the non-specialist general reader seeking to achieve a peaceful perspective with respect to the stresses and pressures of ordinary daily life." -Midwest Book Review

"The End of Self-Help is a modern self-help book with an inspiring twist. Brennersuggests that individuals have the power within themselves to find peace andhappiness NOW, and not after undergoing extensive (and often expensive)self-help therapy." -Readers' Favorite

"This is not a book for just reading. This is one of those books to live with, to experiment with its ideas and discover the magic in the words as they reveal a deeper peace that we all have within ourselves. The author is extremely generous in offering support for our individual journey to find this peace, through her guided meditations, her YouTube videos, and her website. I have been through this book five times now, and still I find more within its pages..." -UK Reader

"I love this book. It is a bit like the power of now but I think it's easier to understand and it goes more in depth into why we suffer and why we play out habits that do not serve us. It cuts right through the layers of mental conditioning that stop you seeing life clearly, so that you can fully experience the peace that exists in the present moment. I cannot rate this book highly enough. It is one I am sure I will reread numerous times." -UK Reader

"Gail Brenner is a tremendous source of practical wisdom. In this book she hammers away at the one real thing that matters and the only thing that is real....dedicating ourselves to being aware. Chapter after chapter she gives us tools that are immediately accessible to anyone. She puts the words of the masters into straight forward and compassionate language that anyone can follow and put to use in their lives. I am on my second read of her book. This time I am highlighting and taking notes. I feel like she is right beside me and helping me during a time of emotional hardship. Would highly recommend. Thank you Gail." -Canadian Reader

"An amazing read. It has given me so many aha moments. It is a complementary to "the Power of Now". I strongly recommend this book. It brought so much clarity and deepened the presence and understanding." -Canadian Reader

From the Back Cover

The Happiness You Long for Is Already Here 

The self-help industry is fundamentally flawed. It perpetuates the myth that we are limited, damaged, inadequate selves who need to be fixed. Sadly, it keeps millions of us hoping for a better future when we will finally be happy and fulfilled.

But what if this inadequate self isn't who you are? What if it's possible, at any moment, to be peaceful and free? 

Well, it is, and that's what The End of Self-Help: Discovering Peace and Happiness Right at the Heart of Your Messy, Scary, Brilliant Life is about.

The approach offered here is the only real medicine for your struggles. It questions everything--every conditioned habit, everything you take for granted--so you realize that nothing needs to be changed or fixed to be happy. You awaken to the (literally) mind-blowing understanding that you're always whole, always free. And you're finally fully here in the moments of everyday life.

Explorations and guided audio meditations in each chapter bring these insights alive in your own experience. You discover the end of self-help because you realize that you're not the incomplete, broken self who needs help. Weaving a psychological perspective with spiritual inquiry, what's revealed is the living, breathing possibility of peace now...and now...and now...
