This was an excellent book that opened my eyes to many of my own false and irrational beliefs. Made a difference in my life. WHAT MORE CAN YOU SAY.
While the foundation and concepts of his teachings are excellent, following this in an audible format is excrutiating. The author uses so many acronyms that it becomes cumbersome to listen to and difficult to follow. Had he actually read the full words it would have been much more informational and useful. For example, he might say something like we work on your RBs to dispute your IBs so that your RBs begin to dissolve your IBs... After a while, which B are we talking about? Book may be great, but I can't recommend this audible until it is edited and revised for this format.
The concepts in the book are useful for understanding where anger comes from and how to manage it effectively.
There's another book by Ellis for Anxiety, also on Audible.
Yes. He has a pleasant voice that's easy to listen to, and conveys the subject well.
The worst part of the experience is the sound quality. I tried all the versions, and they all sound like a bad AM radio program from the 70s. Other books don't sound like this at all. I think there's a problem with the recording.
"Chapters one and two were excellent, chapter three less so"
The book was orated well, it was useful in its description of the main issues and very much realistic about the scope of the problem for most. It offered practical steps to rationally overcome the issues at hand as well as good practical steps.
