    The relentless pursuit of high self-esteem has become a virtual religion - and a tyrannical one at that. Our ultracompetitive culture tells us we need to be constantly above average to feel good about ourselves, but there is always someone more attractive, successful, or intelligent than we are. And even when we do manage to grab hold of high self-esteem for a brief moment, we can't seem to keep it. Our sense of self-worth goes up and down like a ping-pong ball, rising and falling in lockstep with our latest success or failure.

    CBT is a hugely popular self help technique, which teaches you how to break free from destructive or negative behaviours and make positive changes to both your thoughts and actions. This audiobook contains an effective and sympathetic introduction to this NHS-endorsed therapeutic treatment; the latest advice on how CBT can help with anxiety, depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder; help with identifying unhealthy modes of thinking.

    What did you love best about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy For Dummies Audiobook?

    Productive suggestions are provided for living a happier more fulfilling life. Action steps are defined to help a person take a more constuctive, positive appraoch to solving their problems and resolving emotional difficulties.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Since this is a learning self help book, it helps one to become their own therapist of sorts. A lot of good analogies provided but no main characters are described.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It is over two and one half hours in duration it certainly is interesting enough to listen to all in one session. I have listened to the entire audio many times now in it's entirety and plan to listen to it again to reinforced the principles of CBT. With each listen I gain another insight to improve the way I view a particular situation.


    Any additional comments?

    Perhaps if the audio was longer and the author had gone into more examples to help absorb the principles it would have been better.
