5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful book, 8 Nov. 2004
This review is from: The Feeling Good Handbook (Paperback)
This book is written in an extremely friendly and informative manner. The exercises are very practical and relatively easy to follow. It is a self-help book which actually gives you concrete things that you can do which can change your life and the way that you feel. One thing that I will say though, is that this book contains more of the author's own philosophical views than most other cognitive therapy authors seem to allow themselves to express. Some very healthy but also very personal 'attitudes' are clearly visible in the text but if you share the beliefs or are convinced by them then this is not a problem. I can see that it is a wonderful, life changing book but at the same time it was not the one for me because I fall into the category of people who benefit most from 1-1 therapy rather than just 'bibliotherapy'. I was guided to this decision by the book itself! The best thing about this book, actually, is that it is very honest and based properly on science and research (which D.Burns constantly refers to) and which, believe it or not, has been proved to work for many people. You really do feel in the hands of an expert and the fact that it is an honest expert who tells you when you have a better chance from seeking help elsewhere makes him all the more trustworthy!
