Beth Lisick

When: Thu., Jan. 24, 7:30 p.m. 2008

It's not that Beth Lisicknever thought she needed improvement -- but rather that the idea of seeking it was overwhelming: joining gyms, pursuing programs, choosing gurus. Yet a year ago, the former San Francisco Chronicle columnist decided to go for it. The result is her book, Helping Me Help Myself: One Skeptic, Ten Self-help Gurus, and a Year on the Brink of the Comfort Zone. At Diesel (5433 College Ave., Oakland) on Thursday, Jan. 24, the Berkeley author discusses her strange and often-funny journey, which included stints under the tutelage of Jack Canfield, John Gray, SuzeOrman, and others. 7:30 p.m. Diesel.booksense.com
