This week, self-improvement. If you want to look better, feel better, perform better, there's no shortage of help available.

Whether it's cosmetic surgery for the perfect body, fitness programmes to boost self-esteem, or self-help books to improve the mind, there's plenty of choice.

But do they promise the world and fail to deliver - or give you the strength to achieve the personal growth you desire? Evan Davis and guests discuss the industry of making your life better. This week the guests are:

  • Jon Congdon, President and Co-Founder,
  • Carole Tonkinson, Publisher, Harper NonFiction
  • John Ryan, Founder and Chairman, Make Yourself Amazing
