A new study reveals that self-help measures look to be counterproductive. British spychologist Simon Delsthorpe sagely observes:
If you're not close to your parents, don't have many friends, are unemployed and are unhappy with your appearance, it might be hard to have high self-esteem.
Telling yourself you're wonderful ain't gonna make you feel better about yourself; the solution is counseling, of course.

Heh. Have always thought self-help books are a crock. In fact, I loathe them. Sometimes things are crap, and just saying "Everything is wonderful" really doesn't help.
