In this day and age, audio books have become extremely popular. Why? The simplest explanation is that it's much easier to LISTEN to a book, while doing something else- than it is to take the time to read a book when you're already crunched for time. Self help audio books are no exception. Many publishers have taken popular books and turned them into audio books, and the self help books are a booming industry. The simplest reason is that it's much easier to take the time to work on yourself when you can do it while doing something else.
Many people purchase audio books to listen to while driving, car travel, listening to in their personal disc player while walking or working out, and even listen to them in small cd players while working, showering, bathing, cleaning house, etc. This makes it easy to listen to the classics, poetry, how-to and self help all while doing something else!
When shopping for self help audio books, it's good to have an idea in mind as to what you're actually looking for. A specific title or a specific author is a huge help when trying to find audio books. While audio books have become more mainstream, it's sometimes difficult to find certain books- having a good idea as to what you're looking for is the best way to find exactly what you want or need.
Many discount retailers have begun carrying audio books, at least in the fiction genre. Although when looking for certain titles or authors, it might be a good idea to go to one of the large retail chain book-stores, they often have a larger selection and will also help you order specific titles. Self help audio books are usually found in these larger stores, but some may still need to be specially ordered.
Another inexpensive place to find self help audio books is through either one of the major book seller websites online or even some of the various online auction sites. You're likely to find a larger selection of items, and sometimes even find harder to find titles, simply by putting in a search for certain keywords, titles, or authors. If you know of a specific book title or author you are looking for, however, it's a good idea to be willing to take the time to special order it if you have any trouble finding it. Sometimes it is necessary to order from the publisher directly.
If you know of a specific title or author that you feel you'd benefit reading, then by all means, search for it and get it. Self help books, whether audio or hard copy- are beneficial to many people, so it's worth the time and effort to find whichever one you need so you can listen to it and benefit from it. There isn't an easier way to learn to help yourself while on the go.
