30 Self-Help Books That Permanently Changed My Life

When I got divorced at the age of 30, my perspective changed dramatically.

Dark wrongness permeated, and somewhere along the way I realized: If everything is wrong, then maybe nothing is.

This is when I first gave the whole stupid embarrassing oeuvre of self-help a chance.

God how glad I am that I did.

My brain is totally different now, and I know that I control my happiness — not anyone outside of myself. I owe it all to these 30 books.
