In 1979 my friend Matthew McKay and I founded New Harbinger Publications. It has grown to be one of the premiere publishers of self-help psychology and health books in the world. For over 20 years I wrote and published self-help books, cassette tapes, and video tapes as my main day job. Here are some of the titles I wrote all or part of:

Mind & EmotionsNot Dead Yet, Communication Skills for TeensMessagesAddiction WorkbookCouple SkillsDaily RelaxerFamily Guide to Emotional WellnessPrisoners of BeliefSelf-EsteemSuccessful Problem Solving

I remain on the board of directors of New Harbinger and I still write a self-help book every couple of years, but I have withdrawn from the day-to-day operations.
