Summary:
SHAM demonstrates how the self-help movement¿s core philosophies have infected virtually every aspect of American life¿the home, the workplace, the schools, and more. And Salerno exposes the downside of being uplifted, showing how the ¿empowering¿ message that dominates self-help today proves just as damaging as the blame-shifting rhetoric of self-help¿s ¿Recovery¿ movement.
