This is a persuasive and well-written case for the efficacy of cognitive therapy. At times it seems pedantic in its spelling out of endless examples, but at least this has the advantage that Beck never takes our understanding of his points for granted, and is suggestive that his conclusions are thoroughly thought out. The section on techniques of cognitive therapy is particularly telling and he ends with a useful comparison of cognitive and other types of therapy.

Good book each person who borrowed it from the university library has ended up buying it. That shows what a useful resource it is.

Format: Paperback
This is the classic text providing an overview of early Beckian cognitive therapy. It's a very old book now (or I'd give it five stars). You'd be much better to look at Beck's more recent books for a current account of cognitive therapy.

Cognitive Therapy of Anxiety Disorders
Depression: Causes and Treatment

Cognitive Therapy and the Emotional Disorders is still a very interesting account of how cognitive therapy developed in relation to other approaches, particularly behaviour therapy. The chapters include,

1. Common Sense and Beyond
2. Tapping the Internal Communications
3. Meaning and Emotions
4. Cognitive Content of the Emotional Disorders
5. The Paradoxes of Depression
6. The Alarm is Worse than the Fire: Anxiety Neurosis
7. Afraid but not Afraid: Phobias and Obsessions
8. Mind over Body: Psychosomatic Disorders and Hysteria
9. Principles of Cognitive Therapy
10. Techniques of Cognitive Therapy
11. The Cognitive Therapy of Depression
12. The Status of Cognitive Therapy

Donald Robertson, author of,
The Philosophy of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT): Stoic Philosophy as Rational and Cognitive Psychotherapy

This book was published in 1976 but remains an excellent introduction to the subject.
It is a well written and non-technical review of the subject matter which is accessible to professional and non-professionals alike.
There may be better more recent material but I have not found it.
It is an excellent place to start on the subject

This is used as a required reading text book for the CBT module of certain councilling courses.
It is rather dry reading but does include information in a useful and easy to assimilate way so is best dipped into rather than trying to read it outright in one sitting.

Picked this book up whilst curious about CBT and just stood and read it for half an hour. Very easy to read even though it is a bit academic. If you hate all those "improve your life" books and want to know what the professionals read then this is the basic text.
