When you think of Personal Development (PD) books- what comes to mind? Is it those silly infomercials or radio ads? The section of Barnes & Noble you will never walk down because it is titled Self- Help? For me, Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. 10-15 years ago, yes I have a few of these because at that time family thought they were great holiday gifts for some odd reasons and they have been sitting on a bookshelf/ or in a box piled under other stuff in the basement ever since.
