Highly recommended

I recommend this book to anyone seeking to change their reactions by cognitive behavioral therapy. It’s a good resource as it provides a workbook section that allows to study and apply these processes and document the outcome.

Worst Book I've Ever Read

Filled with trite and condescending ideas. Find a better book on the subject. Don't bother with this one.

Very insightful!

Easy to follow and you can jump around to various chapters, as I do to follow my class. It has helped me a lot by recognizing my behavioral trends with emotionally thinking and bringing me to the here and now. I highly recommend!! One of the best self help books I have used.

Fantastic helpful book.

The latter targets the psychological facets of behavior versus Cognitive Behavior Therapy the focuses on negative thinking patterns.

Very helpful and useful audio.

To control your emotions and overcome any stress you have is never easy especially you are in the dark side of it. This is the best therapy I ever listen that for me is effective enough to take charge of all.
