Description

The overall opinion we have of ourselves and the value we place on ourselves as people can have a dramatic effect on our happiness. If you are troubled by uncertainty and self-doubt, or have thoughts about yourself that are often critical, these beliefs can contaminate many aspects of your life, from your personal relationships to your work and leisure time. Your health and energy level may also be affected. Based on the clinically proven techniques of cognitive behavioural therapy, "Overcoming Low Self-Esteem" has been developed to help readers break out of the vicious cycle of self-destructive thinking. By learning the art of self-acceptance, readers can alter their lives for the better.

Review quote

"Three Hudson valley women contributed outstanding personal essays in this lively collection of urban musings."-Chronogram Magazine, "Chronogram Magazine" ""New York is the plural city par excellence, the place of many tales. This new collection, taken from the pages of the city paper, gives us a new luxuriance of New York stories, neither neatly splashy nor narrowly sociological, but instead with the spice and eccentricity and plural energy that New Yorkers will recognize as ours and non-New Yorkers may wish was theirs."
-Adam Gopnik, author of "Through The Children's Gate: A Home In New York" "Former section editor Rosenblum gathers 50 of the best pieces of the post-September 11 era by masters of the form including Edwidge Danticat and Francine Prose this rich sampling delivers."
-"Publishers Weekly", "The City section was an invaluable counterpoint, almost a stowaway, on the cruise liner of the Sunday "New York Times". It delivered news that stays news--indelible and intimate stories of city life, by turns disturbing, amusing, and enchanting. The pieces in this collection are as alive now as they were when they first saw newsprint. Reading them again, even across a distance of years, was like bumping into old friends."
-Thomas Beller, author of "The Sleep-Over Artist" and "How to Be a Man" "[T]his commemorative collection captures the essence of New York's distinctive urban life."
-"Library Journal",
