"Many women feel the distressing effects of low self-esteem. They worry that they are inadequate or worthless; feel insecure about their looks and dissatisfied about their bodies; doubt that they are lovable; secretly believe that they don't deserve success and happiness; harbor fears that they are not bright enough, not talented enough, just not good enough.
This compassionate, ground-breaking book examines how women's harmful attitudes about themselves are shaped. It offers concrete help - sometimes in the form of step-by-step exercises - to resolve the dilemma women face by building higher self-esteem. For every women who has ever wanted to like herself more, Women and Self-Esteem is a truly invaluable and effective guide."
