Publisher's Summary

For any woman who lives with the heartache of low self-esteem, who feels inadequate or worthless, who hates her looks, who doubts that she is lovable, who secretly believes that she doesn't deserve success of happiness, this audio offers invaluable support and guidance.

Drawing on extensive research and interviews with women from all walks of life, authors Sanford and Donovan explains how women's self attitudes are shaped by family relationships and by such outside influences as schools, religion, the workplace, and the mass media. Then, with compassion and insight, they provide concrete help: specific suggestions and step-by-step exercises for building higher self-esteem - and ultimately, for living a truly healthy, fulfilling life.

    "I didn't find this book helpful"

    I didn't enjoy the narrator's voice. The majority of the book explains why many women have low self-esteem...childhood, role models, abuse...things most of us already know. There was very little information or techniques to help improve the way you feel about yourself.

    ""So What""
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A comment was made in this book about stating "So What" when you found yourself talking about something to put yourself down etc. Well I think that phrase sums up the book too. I was disappointed, I didn't learn anything I didn't already know or haven't already heard. The narration was rather drab and I found it difficult to even stay focused enough to pay attention or even having the desire to. I think having more information and more direction on improving self esteem as well as having another narrator would of made this book better.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Linda Tschirhart Sanford’s performances?

    No
