About Justin


Hi everyone,  Justin here. Welcome to selfhelpbooksworld.com.

Below is a short introduction to me and the website. I hope you find it useful and learn a bit about me, my story and why I started selfhelpbooksworld.com

A bit about Justin

Growing up on a small farm where my Dad worked, I knew from a very early age that farming was to be the career for me. Although, I was very lucky things weren’t to be easy.

During school holidays I started helping out on a local farm, eventually starting work there when I left school. About three years in I started suffering from anxiety which eventually developed into panic attacks and depression.

I couldn’t continue working and had to leave the job I had always dreamed of. The next few years were not good and although my Doctors were very good and an actual cause was eventually discovered (which I will talk more about in the future) I found reading self-help books were a great help in my recovery and soon realized that utilizing the ideas and experience found within the pages of the books, could have a profound effect on my whole life.

I eventually trained and worked with adults with learning difficulties, physical disabilities, challenging behaviour, autism and acquired brain injuries. It is all this experience that I am drawing on to produce this site.


Why I Started Self Help Books World

When I first started looking for self-help books myself, I spent many hours looking through the local library (this was before the internet really got going) for the relevant books. Often books weren’t available on the particular subject and had to be reserved or ordered in specially, taking time and then sometimes not being particularly useful! I bought some books, but with so many titles it was difficult to decide which ones to purchase.

Although using the internet to publish this website and do research I still find reading a book printed on paper, easier and more informative than on a screen. It does seem easier to absorb the meaning and intent of words when read from a physical book.

However, I do know that many people are very happy reading a book on the screen and in fact these days some titles are only available as downloads. Then there are the audio books which has provided access to a whole world of books for those that are unable to see the words, unable to read or physically unable to hold or manipulate a book or screen.

Technology truly is amazing and improving all the time allowing more people access to the information they need and allowing authors to reach more readers.

Whichever format you prefer the truth is, there are so many self-help books out there it can be difficult to decide which book to choose, this is where the idea for selfhelpbooksworld.com comes in.


The Purpose of Self Help Books World

I want to help you find the books that are most relevant to you and that will provide the best help for you. I will be recommending books that I would be happy to spend my own money on. I will be recommending books that will cover the full range of self-help and in all the available formats.

Most importantly I would like you to give feedback and review self help books that you have read. Your views will help others choose books that will be of most help to them.

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best,


Founder of Self Help Books World
