Ever wonder why the audiobook genre has grown so significantly over the past few years? One answer is the prolific amount of pablum offered by pop psychologists such as talk-show self-help guru Jeffers (Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway, Audio Reviews, LJ 4/1/93) with her latest approach to dealing with fears and moving forward in life with confidence, action, and love. Some of her dozen helpful tools include ignoring the voice of the lower self; listening to the voice of the higher self; verbalizing affirmations, mantra-like, over and over, like "giving it away" and other similarly silly nicknames for techniques targeted toward the depressed, those hopelessly consumed by self-pity, and, of course, anyone with time to watch her on Oprah. Trite, glib clich?s abound here in one of the better examples of useless psychobabble; the "good-witch-of-the-north," syrupy delivery is at worst embarrassing and at best ridiculous. Set aside the candles and the crystals and ignore this foolish glop. Instead, to be of significant help to those with legitimate need for professional guidance, librarians should provide the substantial works of such stalwarts as Viktor Frankl (Man's Search for Meaning, Audio Reviews, LJ 3/1/96) or Stephen Covey (The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, S. & S., 1989). Not recommended.
