Self help

Self-help is a $20 billion industry between books, apps and products. But is it causing more problems than it solves, so asks the Jan. 15 issue of the New Yorker.

A question is why do we need to spend so much time, money and energy fixing ourselves to a point of constant discontent and sense of failure.

Maybe I'll write a book called, Weaning Yourself off Self-Help.

Subtitle, The Last Self-Help Book You'll Ever Need."

Yes. A single sentence book. "Don't buy any more self-help books." And then lots of empty pages the person can fill in as he or she likes.
