What books on self-esteem and/or parenting do you recommend?

(And please don't say Fifty Shades of Grey.)

I've read all of Nathaniel Branden's books on the topic. Been studying him for years. I'm looking for something different.

Have you read The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem? Branden studied under Rand. He was basically her protégé, and his work in the field is groundbreaking. This is my favorite book of his.

If you liked Rand (I assume you're talking about Atlas Shrugged), then you should really check out Branden's work. I implement some of his concepts daily with my DD, and I'm amazed at her progress and ability to cognitively process stimuli.

Don't worry, I don't think Fifty Shades comes close to the kind of book you are looking for :)

I've tried finding self esteem books, but so far none have really impressed me.

 I'm curious, what exactly are you looking for?  Something for yourself or for someone you know or just because this is your interest?  : )

 200 Ways To Raise A Girl's Self-esteem. Also the American Girl series is really good.  The Care and Keeping of You (about body changes, menstruation), all the girls in my family have loved this book. Absolutely Indispensable Guides to Life for Girls.
