A Walk Through the Self-help Aisle

I love self-help books. I told this to Cheryl Strayed’s husband one night after babysitting and he said, “It’s great to hear you say that. No one likes admitting that, but what would we do without self-help books?” A few weeks ago, I saw Augusten Burroughs read from his self-help book This Is How. Even Augusten Burroughs was like, You are not supposed to read these books on the bus. Can you imagine?!

I’m sorry–what? I’m not allowed to read my self-help books on the bus? I don’t believe in that rule. It’s not like it’s offensive literature.

Here’s five books I read in the past 6 months or so that I loved.
