Liability waiting to happen.
What would have made Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) better?
Appropriate (or any, for that matter) of research done to support material. The book makes several false claims and it is obvious the author has done zero research on CBT or appropriate therapeutic treatment.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Nothing by this author.
What character would you cut from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)?
I would remove the inaccurate information that could lead to serious health complications or death. The author should not be giving medical advice about detoxing if they are not a doctor or not informed on the topic.
Any additional comments?
The book makes several recommendations that readers try very serious therapeutic procedures on their own, which carries a huge risk. The book recommends people try exposure therapy on their own, and also suggests that alcoholics should attempt to go "cold turkey", which can result in serious medical problems, and/or death. The book is extremely inappropriate, inaccurate, and is in now way a replacement for adequate therapeutic or medical treatment (which the book repeatedly suggests it is: "This book can save you a lot of money and you won't have to go to an expensive therapist"). I would not recommend this book to anyone.
