Best Self Help Books

Only a few years back, there was a common thinking that a little bit of our own effort should be put along with seeking external help to facilitate speedy progress.

Here are some books that can help in improving, healing and transforming one by one's own effort. However one should be reasonable in seeking external medical help whenever required. Here is a list of specially collected best self help books.
