A thought provoking book with a great clear structure,
This review is from: Stop Worrying: Get your life back on track with CBT (Paperback)
I was a bit sceptical when I picked up this book since I have read many similar books and already have a good knowledge of CBT, however I was pleasantly surprised to discover that this book still has a lot to teach me.
The first thing I would praise is the great layout. All the material is presented in short, easy to digest chapters and there is a structured programme to follow for 4 weeks which includes various exercises and ideas on how one can cope with worry. There is space for user notes and a large number of tests. I found that this makes the information easier to understand and certainly makes the book much more fun compared to reading pages and pages of text. There is also a section called worry for advanced students where the reader can examine the most common worries such as "Nobody likes me" and " I am stupid". I have come across similar information before but I particularly liked the approach in this book of how to deal with these common worries. I could really relate to the explanations and the examples in this book.
I would definately recommend this book even to an experienced CBT student interested in the idea of coping with worry.
