For the past few months, I have been researching many self help books and free videos on YouTube or news letters to help improve my self confidence, attracting women, and having more self esteem and things like that.
In fact, I have been looking so much up and reading so many reviews about certain ones and such, that I simply cant tell if these things actualy work or not because of all the conflicting opinions and reviews I read. one person will say its life changing, the other will say its a crock of shit that will ruin your life. And really, im constantly worried that if I implement techniques and mindsets found in these books, that im secretly doing more harm than good and the changes that will occur will not be positive or better, but negative and more damaging because they are a load of shit.
Really, I have no idea which books or authors even really work because of all the conflicting reviews and opinions. I mean, a book can have 4 or 5 stars on amazon customer reviews, but I dont know if those are fake accounts and they do have people giving 1 star reviews in those as well.
Really, I'm just fearful of the books ruining me into something I don't want to be or wont help me accomplish my goals.
Does anyone have any experience or advice on these things? I don't think I can solve my personal problems without help, but im having trouble distinguishing legitimate advice and methods from Snake oil selling.
