I am turning into a fan of this guy.

His first book was awesome and I sought out a second, which is this. I love the way he explains things simply and gives practical solutions to common problems.

Writing about psychology is clearly his passion and it shows! Well done Jonny Bello!

My one and only experience with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy was about nine years ago while visiting a female counselor with my then-girlfriend. If I'd had this little book with me I would have known what the h*ll she was talking about and my then-girlfriend may have been better prepared to continue with the therapy than she was at that time. A highly informative book that is better presented than most and written by someone that knows their stuff. Recommended.

So often we react emotionally to the challenges life presents us, which changes how we relate to other people, and how we manage to function. We all wish we could gain a measure of control over our negative thoughts and feelings, so as to avoid depression, anxiety, and stress. This book aims at giving us a handle over ourselves, by using techniques of cognitive behavioral therapy.

Each chapter outlines a different subset of these techniques, giving you important knowledge to tackle the negative feelings in an effective manner, and to embrace the positive ones. The book is well researched, introducing the history and meaning of cognitive behavioral therapy, and presenting its applications for treating anxiety, eating disorders, depression, and substance use disorders.

Five stars.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for a fair and unbiased review. This book is, based on its length, not an exhaustive treatment of CBT. However, it serves its purpose quite well as an introductory, foundational read into this area of knowledge. The fundamentals are what readers of this book will be searching for, and they will not be disappointed. More importantly, reality is accounted for. It is not a theoretical work alone. It ensures that practical reality is addressed by referencing case studies from the real world. Clearly, a good deal of research has gone into this work. For anyone needing a foundational read into CBT, this book is recommended.

Before reading this book, I was somewhat familiar with cognitive behavioral therapy, or CBT. I knew it was a treatment for certain disorders, including addiction, depression, and phobias. After seeing people I know struggling with depression, and addiction, I was anxious to read this and learn more. This is a good introduction to the subject – easy to understand, and it includes techniques and examples. There are case histories as well. I’ve already recommended it to a few friends.

Mention mankind's tool use to most folk and they'll visualise cavemen with clubs - but the most valuable tool we have ever had sits right between our ears. This well-researched book will lead you into ways of using that brain-gland better, or perhaps even using it consciously for yourself for the first time ever. This is a great place to start, if you haven't already.

Highly recommended.
