These books are popular because they give their readers a quick fix for their problems. They usually focus on problems that would interest a majority of the population, like how to lose weight or how to build your self esteem. If you feel you are faced with an embarrassing personal problem that you cannot discuss with anybody, a self-help book can be useful. These books are much in demand in this superficial world where people are getting more and more isolated.
