Self-Help Yourself

In the June edition of New Criterion, the skeptical doctor reviews a newly-published book about the dubious self-help/psychological industry.

I have a similar thought about all the psychology and self-help books ever written (the two categories have a tendency to slide imperceptibly into one another). If they were withdrawn from the shelves and destroyed, what would be the loss to humanity? Would anyone be the worse for it, would human self-understanding be one jot or tittle the less?
