5.0 out of 5 stars An outstanding resource. 26 July 1996
By A Customer
Dr. Beck's book isn't just another pop-psych guide to saving your marriage.
It is an extraordinarily helpful resource by one of the founders
of cognitive psychology. Each of the chapters illuminates how marital
partners create conflicts; how they can understand their problems;
and how they can mobilize their resources for making effective
change. A sensible, sensitive book for those striving to create
a more fulfilling marriage.

Cognitive therapy is based on the premise that emotions come out of unexamined, habituated thought reactions. These thoughts and the emotions they foster can be deconstructed and, hence, defused of their power to poison all human interactions, not just those between wife and husband. A brilliant book--unpretentious, well-written, truly helpful. The astute reader will see all sorts of parallels to contemporary linguistic theory. Do yourself a favor: throw all your New Age psychobabble books in the garbage and read Dr. Beck.
