2.0 von 5 Sternen I HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS BOOK THROUGHOUT
I am a psychologist who works with self-esteem issues and almost from page one I had problems with this book. It is full of overgeneralizations and concepts that are inaccurate.

2.0 von 5 Sternen I HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS BOOK THROUGHOUT, 25. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
I am a psychologist who works with self-esteem issues and almost from page one I had problems with this book. It is full of overgeneralizations and concepts that are inaccurate.
Brandon says, for instance, that "medium-self-esteem individuals" (his words) are "typically" attracted to others with medium self-esteem and that low-self-esteem-individuals are "typically" attracted to low-self-esteem-individuals" which, as a psychologist, I haven't found to be true. Instead I have found that individuals with low self-esteem may, indeed, be MORE COMFORTABLE with others who have a similar level of self-esteem, but they are most definitely ATTRACTED to those with higher levels of self-esteem, those who portray a strong sense of confidence, those who are independent, those who are positive, secure, upbeat, and have a sense of purpose in their lives. In fact, people with low self-esteem routinely attempt to attach themselves to people with healthy self-esteem, people others admire, because they enjoy a sense of self-importance and feel more secure themselves, when around people who seem to "have it together". Thus, I have found that people with low self-esteem only tend to gravitate to others who have low self-esteem AS A LAST RESORT, when they feel others are not accepting them, when they feel they don't fit in anywhere else. They definitely ARE NOT "ATTRACTED" to others who have low self-esteem. It's common, for instance, for young people who feel they don't fit in with the popular kids at school, to form their own groups--they ban together because they feel like outcasts. Inside, however, they would like to be friends with the same kids others admire. Forming gangs or groups of their own at least gives them a sense of belonging somewhere,of having a support group where they are not ridiculed, teased, or made to feel less adequate. If the truth were to be known, however, they too would say that they really just wanted to fit in with the regular kids in their schools and community.
The second problem I had with this book is that Brandon seems not to recognize that just as many people who have low self-esteem become "overachievers" as those who become "underachievers". Sorensen who wrote "Breaking the Chain of Low Self-Esteem" thoroughly explains this this and also how low self-esteem is in itself, a motivator for many people--that anger and a desire to prove oneself adequate and competent can spur people to achieve as much or more than they might have, had they not had low self-esteem. Many highly successful people in all fields have low self-esteem but Brandon doesn't seem to understand this. Brandon doesn't recognize that low self-esteem, though a negative factor, is, indeed, still a true motivator for many who have low self-esteem. These comments come from early in the book. I read somewhat further but found far too many "distortions" in his concepts to want to finish the book. While I know he has had a huge impact on the early understanding of self-esteem, it seems he has not refined his early concepts, as one often has to do, and it concerns me that the average reader who is not well versed in self-esteem issues, will not necessarily realize the problems in his theories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Definitely worth reading several times, 3. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
This is the first comment I've ever placed. If there was ever a book I would support it would be this one. The book, in its value towards my life, has well exceeded its purchase price. I highly endorse it. He packs so much into it that I suggest it be read several times, attacked with highlighters, and underscored with pens, pencils, and crayons. There is a saying, "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear". Well...for many people (who want to improve their sense of self esteem) Nathaniel Brandon is that teacher. As Siskel and Ebert used to say "Two Thumbs Way UP!!!". Aloha

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful theoretically, but it needs much wisdom to use it, 19. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
As a self-esteem coach, virtually every day I thank God (if there is such a Being) for Nathaniel Branden. Up to this point in his evolution as a writer, self-esteem was considered a semi-mystical attribute of character, that was known to be an *effect* of good parenting or good therapy. It was maintained that there were only certain "turning points" in our lives which, if negotiated skillfully, could yield enhanced self-esteem. After the publication of this book, it became clear that we have many many such turning points every day. These insights, allied with the directed sentence completion techniques he developed earlier in his career--a kind of quick burrowing into the subconscious for information and feelings not ordinarily accessible to the conscious mind--can yield enhanced self-esteem in a fraction of the time possible to the earlier forms of psychotherapy at the time. For me the big problem, as a self-esteem coach, is that clients who read "Six Pillars..." often only get help when I put out 100% effort dredging up all I learned over the past 5 decades. If a client does not already have a base of knowledge that needs to be integrated, in my experience using the techniques of "Six Pillars..." leads to confusion. This is not to denigrate Branden's achievement--he is perhaps the most underrated psychologist in the history of psychology, being one of the great generalists whose discoveries are rarely mentioned in counseling texts--but rather to gently chide him (should he read this little epistle) to *please* write a book about what he must contribute, as therapist and as man, in addition to the theory and exercises written about here to achieve the wonderful results he has achieved with his clients.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant summary of Dr. Branden's work on self-esteem, 9. Dezember 1998
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
Branden's work is found in the "self-help" section of bookstores, but his message, which comes from 30 some years of thinking as a psychotherapist and philosopher, is really a coherent theory of how humans function psychologically. Like Freud, Jung, Watson, and Beck, Branden has an entire theory of our inner life, and one wonders why such a thoughtful and integrated theory is not so well known. In brief, Branden begins where all psychologists begin-- that in order to understand human psychology, one must understand the nature of how humans think. And the essence of human thinking is that it is rational and abstract (unlike Freud who sees thought as instinct driven and mostly unconscious, or the Behaviorists who see human thinking as a simple process of pain is bad, pleasure is good). This ability to think abstractly and rationally inevitably allows us to "see ourselves"--to be self-conscious. Because we are self-conscious, we all have a picture of, and feelings about, our own self. Everything we do, think, believe, is filtered through this self-concept. So instead of asking, "How did one, as a child, move through his/her sexual stages?"--a la Freud, or "What rewards or punishments have you experienced?" a la Behaviorism, Branden asks, "How do you see yourself, think about yourself, feel about yourself?" This, he argues, is the key to understand, really, the essence of how one functions in the world. Branden is such a careful thinker, and his thinking is based on years of experience. There is no fluff here. No abstract generalizations, empty cliches, or pep talks. Just carefully thought, pioneering psychology. Six Pillars is a framework for the culmination of Branden's thinking.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Branden At His Best: Rational and Informative, 9. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
Nathaniel Branden is the father of the self-esteem movement. When his first book, The Psychology Of Self-Esteem was published, the word self-esteem was non-existent on the cultural scene. On first experiencing Nathaniel Branden at one of his workshops, I remember thinking to myself, this is rationality at its best. Over the years, Branden's books on self-esteem have continued in this tradition. Six Pillars Of Self-Esteem appears to be a culmination of his knowledge on the subject, a broadening of experience of over 25 years since the publication of The Psychology of Self-Esteem. For anyone interested in self-improvement or growth, for anyone wishing to break free from the cycle of the past or to discover the disowned self, for anyone floundering in the world of pop-psychology or five-minute improvement courses, this is the type of book that can lead the way. Once again, Nathaniel Branden demonstrates rationality at its best.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The best book to read in the "self-help" genre, 18. Dezember 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
If you only read one book about personal psychology or self help, this is the one to choose. Almost any time I have a difficult problem, I can consult this book and realize where I am not bringing enough awareness or responsibility to my life. The most important lesson Branden teaches in this book is that no one is coming to save you, but in the process, he gives you the tools to save yourself.
This is a book that can be read rapidly for those with some experience in Objectivism or psychology. Readers new to personal psychology can take the book step by step, mastering one pillar of self esteem at a time. I have heard that many people find the sentence completion exercises he provides to be valuable, although I have never felt the need for them.
Overall, The Six Pillars has a lot to offer everyone whether they are seeking answers for problems in their life or looking to learn more about psychology.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite possibly the most meaningful book I've ever read, 20. Dezember 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
Don't be fooled by the cheesy title that makes this book look like yet another self-help book. This is an intelligent and open-minded approach to living your life, and it's practically changed mine.
I am someone who only recently realized how low my self-esteem had been throughout life. I had undergone some brief non-medicated therapy that helped, but the real progress I've made and continue to make comes from reading books like this one. I was concerned that in order for this book to "work," I'd have to acquiesce into the author's way of thinking, but my concurrence has been natural throughout. With every recommendation Branden suggests, I ask myself if it would be better to accept this suggestion than not to, and I have yet to reject Dr. Branden's advice.
If you're looking for happiness, more self-esteem, and/or a solid philosophy on how to live your life, this book is it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This book boosted me up one big step on my personal journey, 24. August 1999
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Six Pillars of Self-Esteem (Taschenbuch)
I originally began reading Nathaniel Branden's books about 4 or 5 years ago. I began doing sentence completion every weekday morning to start off my day over a year ago. I cannot begin to express how deeply indebted I feel to Branden for providing a format for people to work on their self-development on their own and at their own pace. Thanks to Branden's books (among others), I have become so much more aware of myself, what has been holding me back from achieving, how we all look for excuses and chances to be the victim. For your own sake, please read his books, but more importantly, do the sentence completion exercises on a regular basis. And hopefully you will meet and become acquainted with one of the most fascinating people in the world - yourself. Enjoy!
