BookReview: The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem
by Nathaniel Branden, Bantam Books, 1994, 0-553-37439-7
Branden has a theory that all psychological problems stem from self-esteem. He has built a career around this, and writes many books about it. He was an Ayn Rand disciple, and had a 18 year affair with her, which ended tumultuously. The six pillars (or practices) are: living conciously, self-acceptance, self-responsibility, self-assertiveness, living purposefully, and personal integrity. Branden is from the cognitive school. He uses a sentence completions as a technique. The book contains a 31 week program to improve your self-esteem by doing sentence completions.
