In this article we are going to study the problems of self. We will see not only the reality but also the magnitude of the problem—how selfishness can cost us our eternal soul.

They sell books with the underlying message saying that once you read this book you’ll solve your problem and you’ll finally be happy. Except you won’t.

The Problem with Self Help Books Being of the unoriginal opinion that no two humans are the same, I find most self-help books to be an insult to the race as well as contributors to the dumbing down of society.
