Welcome to the Kortext self-help & personal development section. You can browse our range of ebooks to find the perfect digital book for you.
Self-help and personal development are areas that are constantly being updated as new theories and techniques arise. People often prefer to resolve problems by themselves, without going to an official organisation. Instead, they find answers, techniques, and comfort in reading the advice of experts.
Additionally, depending on the individual situation, it can be possible to use these ebooks in conjunction with professional help, developing your understanding of issues and exploring different points of view.
In order to decide which book best suits you, it is helpful to break the category down. Self-help can be defined as solving “a problem, end a habit, learn a skill, etc. by yourself”, while personal development is the process of improving your skills and experience for work.
The difference, although subtle, is that self-help books cater to those who need to solve a particular issue, or wish to improve an area of their lives in general. Personal development is thought to relate more to the attributes and skills needed in the job market.
As such, subcategories of self-help books can be related to the following: dealing with stress, reducing anxiety, therapy techniques, mindfulness, love, and social behaviour. The digital books we have in our collection are linked with the topic of popular psychology, but many also span wider topics and include academic theories.
The Kortext range of personal-development ebooks help with professional skills and experience. They can be seen as a guide to improving your performance at work and university. Browse our collection to find help with communication skills, public speaking, leadership, organisation and more. Alternatively, the category also offers digital books on finding jobs and academic courses and performance improvements through professional skills training.
