The Self-Help Sucker author On My Trending Stories

Just a cursory glance at a bookstore's self-help section indicates that a desire for personal growth has become pervasive in our society.  Everyone, it seems, wants to find the secret to happiness and well-being. Many of us have turned to mainstream self-help literature to deal with this crisis, and I am no exception.
