The Psychology of Self-Esteem

The Psychology of Self-Esteem: A Revolutionary Approach to Self-Understanding that Launched a New Era in Modern Psychology.  This new edition of Nathaniel Branden’s seminal work demonstrates how his groundbreaking book defied conventional behavioral theory and popularized his revolutionary ideas about the critical role of self-esteem in leading a healthy, fulfilling life. The book delves deeply into the need for self-esteem, its nature, the conditions for fulfillment, and the ways in which self-esteem (or a lack thereof) affects our values, responses, and goals. Additionally, Branden dispels the myth that self-esteem is a “feel-good phenomenon,” demonstrating how self-esteem, rationality, perseverance, self-responsibility, and personal integrity are all inextricably linked.
