As you grow, your personality grows – and changes. In your youth, this was fine until the day you first realized the rest of the world is growing and changing too. Relationships become stressed, you start to doubt yourself, you see friends and family "change" and head in different directions, until you begin to wonder, "Is it me?"

At this point, the personality traits you learned in your youth no longer meet your needs in today's world and can actually keep you from experiencing personal fulfillment in your career, relationships, and total well-being. Taking the steps to change can be an overwhelming struggle unless you become aware of the key issues that strengthen your self-esteem and empower you with the courage to break free from the old habits that hold you back.

A Cure For The Common Life: The Cardinal Rules of Self-Esteem is a small but deceptively powerful book that pinpoints 10 specific ways to recognize the root cause of common problems and, at the same time, determine a realistic course for improvement. Written in a clear, thoughtful, all-embracing, heart-to-heart style, Catherine Cardinal, Ph.D.'s book gives you the confidence and support to finally take that giant leap – and change for your own good.
