Psychobabble: Exploding the Myths of the Self-Help Generation by Stephen Briers

Psychobabble explains how the self-help industry is misleading people, and why the human mind can't be swayed by catchy self-help mantras and lucid pop-psychology diagrams alone.

  • Anyone who reads self-help books but has not become a genius, a billionaire or even reasonably happy
  • Anyone interested in psychology
  • Anyone who feels overwhelmed by the constant pressure to improve themselves

Dr. Stephen Briers is a clinical psychologist who has authored several best sellers, including Psychobabble, Superpowers for Parents and Brilliant CBT.
