My other passion (granted, there are others on top of that) is a Podcast that I host and produce called, Foreword Thinking - The Business And Motivational Book Review Podcast. The show is sponsored by HarperCollins Canada and I just posted episode #9 which features a conversation with author, Beth Lisick.
Beth's latest book is called, Helping Me Help Myself - One Skeptic, 10 Self-Help Gurus, and a Year on the Brink of the Comfort Zone. It's a hilarious, thoughtful and a powerful read.
Here's more about Beth according to her website:
"Beth Lisick has published poems, essays, a short fiction collection, and also wrote a weekly nightlife column for SF Gate for eight years. Her stage and screen collaborations with writer/performer Tara Jepsen have yielded some uncomfortable moments, the most recent being a short film called Diving for Pearls which played the international film festival circuit. She also co-organizes the Porchlight Storytelling Series, a monthly show for amateur storytellers in San Francisco. Her book Everybody Into the Pool, was a New York Times bestseller and made Entertainment Weekly's list of Top 10 Nonfiction Books of 2005. Her latest book about her adventures in the self-help biz is called, Helping Me Help Myself: One Skeptic, 10 Self-Help Gurus, and a Year on the Brink of the Comfort Zone."
Listen to episode #9 of Foreword Thinking - The Business And Motivational Book Review Podcast to find out why she dresses up like a banana (that was not typo). We had a great conversation and if you're curious about the "business" behind the self-help industry, there are some key insights in our conversation.
