John asks…

Why do self-improvement books are popular and sell like hot cakes?

Writers like Robin Sharma, Anthony Robbins, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Napoleon Hill, Norman Vincent Peale and others are a standing testimony to this fact. Don’t you agree?

MKWeb answers:

People are trying to end their suffering.

The Tibetan Bon Nag have what we call the four thoughts. They are:

1. Life is suffering
2. Desire causes suffering
3. Cut the desire and you end the suffering
4. You are very fortunate to have been born a human this lifetime. Don’t waste the opportunity. Do everything you can to seek Liberation from suffering.

These particular types of writers on some level know the truth of # 1 and so do their readers.

Ruth asks…

Any good self improvement books?

I am 14 years old (girl) and i would like to read any good self improvement books. I’ve read chicken soup before and to be honest, i don’t really like it that much, So none of those kind of books. Also, this is a new genre of book that i am trying out so please tell me anything that will fit my age. I don’t want to start out reading hard books because I probably won’t be interested. Also, i’ll be glad if it’s enjoyable to read. Thank you! 🙂
