This is such an interesting book. It is written by person who suffered terribly when he was a child. He wrote several books about his life: A Child Called 'It,' The Lost Boy and A Man Named Dave. I liked this book so much that I bought a couple of them as gifts for teenagers. It teaches resilience and gratitude.
In his bestselling memoirs, A Child Called It and The Lost Boy, Pelzer recounts his horrific childhood, demonstrating how inner resilience helped him survive and even become a highly caring and accomplished adult. (He was eventually selected as one of Ten Outstanding Young Americans.)
In this book he tackles relevant issues such as spousal and business relationships as well as the art of communication. Dave Pelzer is clearly a master communicator and he has used his experience, knowledge and plain common sense as teaching tools to enrich and reshape the lives of others.

The authors memoir books, " A Child Called 'It'," " The Lost Boy," and "A Man Named Dave," were bestsellers. This book takes the lessons from the struggles of those books and puts them into this inspiring new guide. Lots of heartfelt wisdom.
From Pelzer's books that he wrote of what his childhood was like, this book, Help Yourself, is a wonderful Inspiration to the wonders of hope. The human spirit conquers above and beyound and no matter what, hope is what we have to strive on. A beautifully, well written book on courage and strength.
This book is a hardback, it did not show one for the hardback and the ISBN number I have on the hardback brought up the exact paperback with the same jacket cover as the one above and the same page numbers. I think the book type is just listed incorrectly.
