4 Must Have Self-Help Books

By  |  0 Comments

Seasons come and seasons go and fall is the perfect time to cuddle up with a blanket near a fireplace while reading a book. While there are some fabulous books out there such as BIGLAW: A Novel (or the rest of the books on Harper’s Bazaar #thelist) I suggest taking the time to improve yourself with any of these must have self-help books.


The Perfection Deception: Why Trying to Be Perfect Is Sabotaging Your Relationships, Making You Sick, and Holding Your Happiness Hostage

 Did you know that there is a difference between reaching for great achievement and the physical wound that develops, or the voice of the inner critic that screams “failure” even at the face of true effort and success? Dr. Jane Bluestein has conducted intense research to uncover that striving for perfectionism can be dangerous. On the other hand striving to do your best is a healthy response to any goal in life. Because of the confusion this idea brings, Dr. Bluestein specifically states that perfectionism is not necessarily a positive. She wants to make it clear that perfectionism is akin to an addiction. In her book, she explains how perfectionism shapes and defines our reality or identity by defining the ways perfectionism affects a person’s wellbeing. She finishes with  the last section of the book she works to heal those suffering from perfectionist ideals.
