⬛️  What does the research say? Here are some interesting articles on effectiveness and studies of self help books. ⬇️
– The ethics of positive thinking in healthcare:  https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC7166246/
– Salivary Cortisol Levels and Depressive Symptomatology inConsumers and Nonconsumers of Self-Help Books: A Pilot Study: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4709678/
– Do self help books help?:  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10902-006-9041-2
– Brain‐themed self‐help and the healthcare provider in the United States:  https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1002/bsl.2326

⬛️  Notes
▪️ Except for Marie Kondo’s book, all books I read were published in the US, so unfortunately this discussion is limited by the fact that my books were mainly published in the US- I can’t speak to titles published elsewhere. This is important to me to note because what these books promote are often based in American ideals and values.
▪️ I sought out topics that interested me like productivity, or the ones that were part-memoirs, or on human behavior. I didn’t pick up anything about finance or happiness. I imagine that if one book truly had the answer to happiness or getting rich, there wouldn’t be thousands of books each claiming that- there’d probably only be one that everyone would buy lol
