"The irony in the self-help industry is the book authors themselves are successful for writing success self-help books, not for being successful in the first place. It is time to step back and look at whether these books are valid or are they just sugarcoating on everything. Is it possible to be part of the 3% by following what self-help books say? Can success be engineered? Do these books work or are they just self-esteem boosters? Using the same statistics, one will wonder why out of at least 2 million people who buy self-help books, not all succeeds."
