    "A must read for anyone in stress"

    I got this book as a place to start in CBT. I was surprised on how much was packed on the first 30 minutes of listening. Everyone should get this. This is one of the most revolutionary transformations I've ever experienced in my lifetime with such simple ideas. It gives you the tools to make sense of everything that happens to you.

    This book will become your new best friend.

    "Wish it were Unabridged"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    They go through all the material so fast I just wish they could have covered more of what is in the book. It would be nice to have more examples and clarification. Somehow I didn't realize the book was abridged until I finished it. I just wish there was an unabridged version available.

    "Extreamely Helpful"
    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.

    "Not bad"

    Had some good tips and some good insight, and wasn't that demanding of a listen.

    "Healing therapy"

    Some good rational ideas that work. Didn't finish it because I was healed after half an hour.

    "Great starter book for CBT"
    Would you listen to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy For Dummies Audiobook again? Why?

    I have listed to this book several times and put many of the lessons to practice. The book brings up great points and the narrator is enjoyable to listen to.

    "Disappointed to realize --- an abridged reading"

    I have had prior exposure to CBT concepts, so this book really didn’t teach me anything new. But it did provide some nice reinforcement, and the principles described appeared sound.

    This was one of my first Audible downloads, and I didn’t notice the “Abridged” status. Although I’m not familiar with the unabridged work, at just over 2h, this version seems *heavily* abridged! If it wasn’t for this, I would probably have assigned four stars.

    Middle aged; long University course (science based), and long service as a professional. Cynical and very interested in the real world.

    "OK I guess"

    This boof didn't really answer many questions for me, nor did it hold my interest.

    "Too Obvious"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Well what can I say, the authors advocate applying common sense to common problems. Absolutely nothing new here, nothing of note.

    "Not the full book"

    Having quite a bit of time on my hands I was expecting lots of detailed information (knowing this is not a small subject to have a book on). Unfortunately the audiobook all went too quickly and then noted to the listener at the end that 'this was just a taster to inspire you to buy the full dummies book for all the details of CBT'
    Hence I felt a bit short-changed. And as I dont fancy paying for the book in addition to the audiobook, this was probably a bit of a waste of money.
    However, the information that is carried across in the audiobook is well presented, just not everything!

    "Excellent Introduction"

    This audiobook is an absolute excellent introduction to CBT. Easy enough to follow, but yet engaging revealing and at times enlightening to the human condition. The narrator was a joy to listen to, so overall a very worthwhile addition to anyone's library who is interested in this theory.
