Remember all those posts about self help books? Well, the article that started me down the self help trend appears in Sunday’s Philadelphia Inquirer. You can read the article here. A sample:

“They’re touted as lifesavers, cure-alls and revolutions by their fans; derided as hooey, junk and even evil by their critics. They’re everywhere from your doctor’s office to Oprah, making buzzwords such as empowerment and togetherness part of our daily lexicon, whether we want to feel ’empowered’ or ‘together’ or not.

Welcome to the world of self-help, a once-niche publishing market that has turned into a nearly $10 billion industry, and has everyone asking what exactly is The Secret.”
