I made this book my daily guide, every time I start feeling anxiety I remember lines from that book and act according to the steps described in the book, and amazingly, REBT is working!
As a computer engineer I have scientific approach to things, I fit best to this excellent book logic. It's simple, witty and has no loose ends. Everything is streched out and good explained. There is touch on every subject, even sex and anger. Although, I think, anger management subject should have been developed some more. But anyway, if you're an engineer have a scientific approach, you suffer from frequent anxiety, panic attacks and it's physical consequences, this book is for you!
I found this book to be a great listen, we'll written by Albert Ellis and great narrating by Stephen O'Hara. I use the information in my counselling sessions as well in my every day living. I highly recommend this audio book.
My therapist requested that I read this book to help me gain the skills to fight my debilitating anxiety and panic. I found it particularly helpful to listen to the audiobook because I was able to take in the information more objectively than "hearing" my own voice while reading. I was able to specifically identify reasons why my anxiety is keeping me from action, the underlying thoughts, and exercises to step out of my anxiety bit by bit. I will both listen to this audiobook and read the book again to help the information further sink in.
Albert Ellis will show you the way to an anxiety-free life. I am confident it can be done but I know it won't come easily
I really liked the logical flow of the book. The book appeals to rational side of the mind. When you complete the book you will have a coherent strategy to deal with anxiety. But it is not a feel good book. I recommend this to anyone who is serious about overcoming anxiety.
Fantastic shirt book on using reason to overcome anxiety! Albert Ellis is a very smart man and using critical thinking to help you start living life!
I would recommend this to anyone who suffers with anxiety.
Anxiety Free by Robert Leahy (which I also recommend)
The narration was uneven. The sound levels changed as well as the quality. It was distracting.
No, but given it is relatively short, one could listen to it all in one sitting. But, the book is meaty enough that you may want to re-listen to it again in the future to truly grasp the content.
This book, as does all of Albert Ellis' works, outlines the basic concepts of REBT, which, in my opinion are worth learning about.
