Not complete

The chapters are incorrect for this book and so not match up. The chapters skip around and do not have all the chapters.

An OK

Many exercises, some insightful information but nothing particularly new. Reading was nice. If it's your first book on self-esteem, you will enjoy.

Didn't help me at all, didn't like it.

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

Being written all over again by someone who appreciates what is it like to have low self-esteem.

Any additional comments?

If you are a trainee doctor and want to learn about what self-esteem is then this is the book for you.<br/><br/>If you want advice on how to actually get better this is NOT the book for you.

Why did I get this book?

I gave this two stars for one reason: I realized that I have a healthy self esteem after listening to this. The narrator is terrible and could lead a depressed person deeper into the abyss of sorrow. The content is nothing new and can be summarized into ten seconds: "To change you life, change your thoughts. Stop negative self talk and learn to appreciate your life, one piece at a time."
Enough said

GREAT BOOK! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

Where does Self-Esteem: Third Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Of all the books I have purchased so far this is by far the best book. Great content.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The authors really spent a lot of time writing this book. They paid great attention to detail. It really is an excellent book about how to build your self-esteem.

Have you listened to any of Rob Shapiro’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is my first reading by him.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Self-Esteem: How to rebuild what has already been broken

Any additional comments?

I read a review before I purchased this audiobook and he said that the voice of the narrator is a bit depressing; I agree that he could have read with a little more liveliness but at the end of the day the content is so rich that I overlooked his voice. Also, I never ever take the time out to write reviews but this book is so good I was compelled to write a review.

Great book for people who critisize themself too m

Great book, helped me a lot to understand a topic of self esteem and to find good, practical ways to deal with self-criticism. I recommend this book to anyone who judges himself too much!

Very helpful, relevant, practical, great narration. However I believe u need the book to do the exercises to benefit fully.

A great technical breakdown on self esteem

I loved the technical breakdown on self esteem and improving it. I picked this up at a very low point in my depression to help with therapy I was going through.
