    1. Added 6/11/09Edit - 4/6/13:This is the book which originally put me on the right track about the true meaning of self-esteem. It's one of the favorite books which I have on my bookshelf at home.A friend gave this book to me in the early 1990s and I found it very helpful. IIRC, it's where I got the idea that good self-esteem includes accepting ourselves by giving ourselves credit for our strengths and accepting our limitations once we've done our best. In a nutshell, it's just being ourselves.

    2. *Sigh* Its a little depressing to read through all the possible problems that women with low self esteem have and feel like I have almost all of them. That said, this was a very helpful book for me, although I wouldn't say it dramatically improved my self esteem. Unfortunately, that's something that will take a lot longer than it took to read this book.

    3. After reading this book for one of my book club meetings, I was largely unimpressed with it. While the book does have some good suggestions for addressing low self esteem, virtually all of the book could apply to either gender. Much of the book struck me as obvious and extremely dated.

    4. Even though this book was published back in the 1980s before I was born, I could still relate to some of the issues in this book. It's very well researched, and a great starting point for women who want to improve their self-esteem. One can read through the chapters and then go to the notes section for more information. They quote a substantial amount of material, and sometimes the quotes can be a little overbearing. That being said most of their research comes from the humanities and lacks hard [...]

    5. Sometimes books I would normally not read fall into my possession and I feel compelled to read them before I release them through BookCrossing. Women & Self-Esteem: Understanding and Improving the Way We Think and Feel About Ourselves is one of those books.As the title suggests, this thick volume from 1984 begins with the thesis that poor self-esteem goes hand in hand with being a woman. Men are so favored over women that there is nowhere but down for our egos to go. While I certainly know w [...]

    6. I love this book for how it addresses all the areas in a woman's life that affects her self esteem. I have read this book at least three times in my life and each time find value and insight into myself and my world. I think the title can be one that will put some off but it is a self-help book that really teaches you to think about who you are and why you are the person you have become. The questions and exercises are valuable and insightful. I plan to reread this book over the course of my lif [...]

    7. This book made some interesting points. Some of the points, especially on the third disc, struck me as either obvious or corny. Not sure I would recommend it.

    8. Another favorite in my self-help library. I had never before had realized the difference and the links between self-concept and self-esteem.

    9. This is a great book. I thought it was well-researched and offered good insight and practical tools to improving one's self-esteem. I recommend this book often to others.

    10. As a woman who struggled (struggles) with self-esteem issues, this book was a real eye opener for me. Very helpful and insightful.
