Understanding the Consumer Culture of Self-Help: Fun, Play and Prayers
In this research, using a mixed-method qualitative approach, we investigate the consumer culture of self-help. Although self-help has been studied from a number of disciplinary perspectives, the area has been largely neglected by consumer researchers. Our research reveals four distinct types of self-help values: destination, gratification, therapeutic and spirituality.
