New York Magazine's Self-Help Issue
Cover Art Like you do every year, you took a long hard look at yourself after the holidays and decided you needed to get fit, manage your debt, get more organized, etc. About now you're realizing just how hard it is to break bad habits. You might find yourself heading to the library to look for The 4-Hour Workweek, The Power of Habit, or Daring Greatly to help you figure out how to get back on track.

Did you resolve to read more in 2013? Check out last week's issue of New York Magazine, which took some interesting, thought-provoking, and sometimes humorous looks at self-help as a category. In The Power of Positive Publishing, Boris Kachka looks at the history and changing nature of self-help publishing. In The Self in Self-Help, Kathryn Schulz wonders how we can help our self if we don't even know what a self is. In How to Read 31 Books in Four Minutes, staff writers read and summarize 31 currently popular self-help books so you don't have to! And for a little comic relief, SNL's Bill Hader, provides 7 Steps to Becoming a Highly Effective Bill Hader.
