Independent's top 10 self-help books


Good to see Independent listing their favourite  top 10 self-help books because the best self-help books are both practical and wise.
 Not sure about the 10 chosen, but that's half the fun of this sort of list.

I'm glad that the Stoics are included, but what about Stephen Covey's 7 Habits of Highly Effective People? Or some more modern CBT approaches as well as the admirable but a little dated David Burns?

I've been keeping a list of 10 ten personal development books I recommend in my life coaching practice for a number of years. For the latest see http://blog.timlebon.com/2012/... 
I've included Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning near the top my list, possible controversially. It wasn't written as a self-help manual but has definitely served that purpose.
