more of a question. Michael, when you refer to science
being the basis for self help books, which ones do you
mean, specifically?

I’m out of the mainstream and I generally read self help
books 10-15 years after they are published and popular
and wish I’d read them sooner.

seattle1,
One such book is Professor Sonia Lyubomirsky’s The How of Happiness, which provides strategies and exercises for enhancing happiness, and cites scientific research extensively.
Thanks for your question.
Michael
