Its OK but a bit superficial,
This review is from: Coping with Anxiety and Depression (Overcoming Common Problems) (Paperback)
I bought this book based on the review of others and have to say I personally was slightly dissapointed. I find the book a bit simple and superficial and I did not get the "oh yeah!!" feeling many others have as there wasn't much news in it for me. Having said that I also have to admit I have had a few sessions of CBT and have therefore been treated professionally which may make a difference to someone who hasn't seeked help yet.
The book does outline what depression and anxiety is and it does give you some tools to cope, however I felt that it didn't dig deep enough into each area to really explain it to me. EVERYONE can relate to the message in the book so its kind of like reading a general starsign in the standard paper which suits all instead of one done by a real professional.
