Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

The sales of self-help books are growing. But research has found that some self-help books spread information that is false and at odds with current communication and psychology research. The focus of this study is to analyze the themes associated with relational self-help books written for men to be “successful” with dating women. A thematic analysis revealed three overarching themes associated with these self-help books. The implications and possible effects of those themes are discussed.
