Product Description

Nathaniel Branden''s book is the culmination of a lifetime of clinical practice and study, already hailed in its hardcover edition as a classic and the most significant work on the topic.  Immense in scope and vision and filled with insight into human motivation and behavior, The Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem is essential reading for anyone with a personal or professional interest in self-esteem. The book demonstrates compellingly why self-esteem is basic to psychological health, achievement, personal happiness, and positive relationships.  Branden introduces the six pillars-six action-based practices for daily living that provide the foundation for self-esteem-and explores the central importance of self-esteem in five areas: the workplace, parenting, education, psychotherapy, and the culture at large.  The work provides concrete guidelines for teachers, parents, managers, and therapists who are responsible for developing the self-esteem of others.  And it shows why-in today''s chaotic and competitive world-self-esteem is fundamental to our personal and professional power.

I''m torn between 3 stars and 5 stars. I think I''ll go with 3 stays, because the material is amazing but very difficult to get through. I wish it was more clear and concise, so that the reader would get through it quicker and began to practice it in their daily life.

The first half of the book is life changing. I bolted through it in a few hours. It gave me a realization that pulled me out of a 9 month on and off depression. Since reviewing some of the material whenever I feel down, along with other resources, it gave me insight and clarity in my life that has sustained joy in the past 3 months. I hope it continues. The most significant part that brought me to awareness was his quote about his dog, that I have shared with many others. He says his dog is focused on enjoying the outdoors, chasing squirrels and sniffing flowers, not worried at all about being "happier" than the other dogs. I don''t know if it impacts others the way it did for me, because it was incredibly applicable to my own situation. I realized the significance and potential of this book to impact my life after reading that, and began taking notes seriously.

The second half of the book, in contrast to the first half... took quite a while to finish. It was dry, convoluted, and many of the same ideas are restated. It''s his observations, theories and philosophy, and not really applicable to me. I finished it at last today. Just read the first half where it introduces the concept of self esteem, and MAYBE the last few pages on "The Seventh Pillar" and the appendices.

I bought this book from Amazon at the full price. It''s a solid self-help book, and superb as long as the author sticks to the field of psychology. Parts I and II deal with establishing a solid definition of self-esteem and a cogent explanation of the Six Pillars. I found the sentence-completion exercises to be illuminating and helpful, and shouldn''t be skipped if you plan to get the most out of the book. I may even purchase Branden''s workbook for more sentence stem work.

Unfortunately, Part III of the book strays away from psychology and into the realm of philosophy. Here, Dr. Branden sounds more like his ex-lover Ayn Rand. Honestly, you can skip Part III of this book and still get more than your money''s worth.

EDIT: Do read the final chapter, 18 - Conclusion: The Seventh Pillar of Self-Esteem. Appendix B is also worthwhile.

The pros: Branden certainly has a lot of insights from his experience as a psychotherapist. He presents many relatable stories and experiences that readers can learn from.

The cons:

The book is vague, and aside from the examples (which a person may or may not identify with), the advice he gives is very abstract. Take responsibility for your life. Accept yourself. Be conscious. I''m having a very hard time wrapping my head around these concepts because there are obviously a lot more steps needed to fully understand them. Especially "be conscious." The author falls short at explaining the idea of consciousness and how it relates to self esteem.

The book is a difficult read. At first I questioned my own intelligence because I felt that I was reading certain sentences repeatedly without understanding what the author was getting at. Then I realized that Branden is a long-winded and sometimes contradictory writer, who doesn''t fully respect the process of logical reasoning. This all became 100% clear to me when I realized he was a former lover of Ayn Rand. His writing is a worse version of Rand''s writing. It''s all the long-windedness and "what''s-he-getting-at"s Rand is notorious for, but with less insights per page.

I''m a psychotherapist and I have gotten a lot out of this book personally and have recommended it to a lot of my clients. It isn''t new by any means, but the information in it is timeless. I highly recommend this book to just about everyone. It can really help you make sense of your lives and help you feel good about yourself, in real ways, not in just shallow affirmations. Read this and you just might become both a "better" person and a much happier person.

This book discusses crucial current issue mainly people specifically newer generations suffer, which is low self-esteem. The author did a great job explaining what actually self-esteem entails and that it is not in isolation from other important personal traits as self-assertiveness and responsibility for example. additionally, it contains plenty of exercises to do in order to enhance each of the mentioned six pillars. The only pitfall from my perspective is the language the book written with. It is kind of recondite, the author usually used long sentences and the vocabulary is not common at all. Maybe because I am not native English speaker, I feel his language is difficult. all in all, it is a nice book.

In my opinion this is a fantastic book to start with for anyone beginning their own personal development journey. The 6 pillars of self esteem lays the foundation for making any other book you read, technique you try, or endeavor you take on more successful. One can''t help but start building their self esteem when they consciously put the 6 pillars into practice.

Practical tip- Upon finishing the book I would recommend that one would put the 52 week self esteem sentence completion plan in the back of the book into practice, as well as read over the "Beliefs about self esteem" section daily to hammer into your mind beliefs that cater to the 6 pillars and help develop rock solid self esteem.

This book has changed my life. It’s is a true deep dive into Self-esteem development. I find a lot of Self-esteem books only deal with the surface with quick fixes, but unfortunately this is not an easy task if you want long term change. However, this book helps you to fully explore how you developed it and how to improve it. I bought this book 3 years ago and was surprised how good it was, but i didn’t do the weekly tasks suggested at the end of each pillar’s chapter. It wasn’t until the beginning of the year I decided to do all of the tasks in the book which technically has enough weekly journaling tasks run for around 6-8months. I’m currently on the 13th week (just about to finish the 3rd pillar of self-responsibility) and I can see a great deal of change already. I’ve become more self-aware, accepting of self and self responsible. I’ve also noticed I have more assertive and purposeful and have not even started the weekly journaling for this! I truly, truly recommend this book if you want to develop healthier self-esteem.

However it is extremely difficult to read I''m finding my self re-reading the same paragraph once or twice to try an grasp his message. making me question my intelligence which is ironic as the book is about self-esteem.

I first read this book in the mid mid 90’s and continue to read aspects of it every month. I have bought copies of the book for members of my family, friends and work colleagues. I was fortunate to meet Canadian Psychotherapist Dr Branden PhD. and discussed issues with him around Self-esteem before he died and can honestly say he is the only person who has throughly understood the topic and got it. If I’m not reading the book I’m listening to the audio version in my car constantly. You think you’ve cracked it when, after solving one life issue, another rears it’s head like a hydra. But as you persist in using the material to develop yourself it gets easier and easier. The material contained within the book is sound, and for those who are not looking for ‘quick fixes and effortless solutions’, this book is a game-changer. For those willing to be honest with themselves and who are willing to do the work and apply the 6 practices of Self-Awareness, Self-Acceptance, Self-Assertiveness, Self-Responsibility, Self-Integrity and Living Purposefully, I can guarantee that your life will change dramatically within a month of doing the exercises. I have been teaching Health ‘Authentic’ Self-Esteem to young people and the adults who work with them, and also to their parents (15,000+) over the past 25 years and the results have been profound and life changing for those I’ve taught these principles to. A word of warning. So profound is the material contained within this book that if you follow it completely, your life will change for the better and this may not be to the liking of those people you know. Your change will highlight the change they need to do in themselves and make them uncomfortable. Truly this book, to quote Branden, ‘will not only help you to feel better, it will help you to live better.’
