I am still trying to wrap my head around an article written by Jennifer Davies in the San Diego Union-Tribune called "Shelf Help: There's a new tool in the individual improvement library - personalized books that are made to guide you to your goals in life."
This new $4000 service is delivered over four days by LifeBook (mylifebook.com) to help participants to outline their goals in such a way that a personal book can be built summing up all that is learned and experienced during the four days of sessions.
Right now the service is available in San Diego and Chicago with future plans to expand their 'lounges' to Orange County and Los Angeles.
The article did mention three other resources:
- Self Help Inc by Micki McGee,
- The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey (which is an excellent book that I highly recommend), and
- Marketdata Enterprises (that studies the self-help market).
