Progressive Self-Help Books Featured in LibraryBub Selection for May

LOS ANGELES, May 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Self-help books are written with the intention of showing readers how to solve personal problems. Jim Giombetti has written a book that looks to the lessons of history for solutions to the problems faced by people today and the challenges that lie ahead. He explains that "the patterns of production, consumption and employment will require proactive adaptation by individuals, corporations and even governments. Climate change and population growth will require structural change economically and socially." The perspective in his book Lessons of History allows people to open up their minds and "to see the present and future for what it can be, through a new set of eyeglasses." Daniel Mangena's book Stepping beyond Intention is also about opening minds. The purpose of the book, he explains, is "to show how to break through the stagnant energy and paralyzed states of being" that hinder development; "the angst-inducing places and spaces" where we sense "that there has to be more to life" but we can't "figure out what that it is or how to get there".

LibraryBub, an industry first, was established in 2015. It is dedicated to making strong, mutual connections between indie and small-press authors and an extensive network of libraries. Imbued with the enthusiasm and ambition of its founder, Alinka Rutkowska, it works in conjunction with all major libraries. The core commitment of the LibraryBub service is to help librarians to identify acclaimed books from the independent publishing sector.

LibraryBub introduces thousands of librarians to bestselling and award-winning books from the independent publishing sector. These books hold immense potential for enhancing the lives of their readers. Irish novelist Rónán Hession recalls that he got into literature by going to the local library each week after swimming at the pool. "There was great autonomy in being a library user. As a child, you could go there without adult company, choose the books you wanted, and then take them home without there being anything fishy about the whole business. It was the sort of trust you wanted to live up to. I developed a reading habit so that I would finish my books in time to swap them the following week." Librarians enable writers to make that kind of difference to people's lives, and LibraryBub CEO Alinka Rutkowska considers it a privilege to support them in that role.
