Format: Paperback
Jargon-free, accessible, focused and helpful. This book is full of practical and easy to follow exercises to help challenge the negative thinking in which we all engage. It shows you practical ways to change old, unhealthy behaviour patterns and apply them to specific problems like anxiety, depression, shame, blushing, jealousy, smoking and much more. Michael Cohen has taken the trouble to explain the concepts and methods clearly and simply. No wading through hefty tomes to get to the point in this book. It’s all here, clearly laid out and waiting to be applied. The author seems to have condensed 28 years of his experience as a therapist into this brilliant, little book with simple, easy to follow exercises to help you help yourself.

I purchased this book as I wanted some help in easy to understand clear speak.

I'm often put off by huge books that basically have a few good points and are then padded out with chapter upon chapter of rubbish that I don't need or want or is written in such a way that I need a dictionary to understand it.

The author (Michael Cohen) seems to be targeting people like me who want to have help from someone who really understands people in today's society. The current needs and challenges that life throws at you can sometimes result in stress and negativity that I want to rid myself of that this book is really helping me with!

I would happily and readily recommend this to family, friends and work colleagues.

Format: Paperback
This is a great little book. It is practical, well written and offers easy-to-follow advice on how to overcome all sorts of negative thinking.

The author covers a lot of ground, giving tips to cope with everything from self-critical thoughts and distorted thinking to anxiety, depression and assertiveness. It's all done in a sympathetic and humane style.

As the title suggests, the aim is to take negative thoughts and habits and to “rethink” them – to examine them in a new way and try to take the power out of them.

For example, it suggests ways to avoid “all or nothing thinking”, where you view a situation as either very good or bad, with no room for the middle ground. Overgeneralisation is another pitfall – you form a general conclusion based on a single incident. “Nothing ever works out for me…” etc.
Others include jumping to conclusions about what others are thinking, discounting the positive or seeing the world in terms of “should…” or “must…”.

The book suggests ways to relax and get your thoughts into perspective. These include simple breathing exercises, focusing on the present moment and allowing negative thoughts to come and go.

The advice is clear and concise, without being simplistic. This book eschews the vague language and ideas sometimes found in “new age” self-help books. It’s full of examples of problems from everyday life and gives step-by-step tips on how to overcome perceived obstacles.

The book is divided into three parts: Be Your Own Best Friend; Relax and Heal Negative Emotions and Change Your Behaviour. The first part looks at the negative things people often say to themselves and gives advice on overcoming worry and accepting yourself. The second deals with anxiety, depression, anger and jealousy.

Format: Kindle Edition
“Rethink it!” is a superbly-written tool kit for anyone hoping to overcome problems of anger, depression, jealousy and other emotional maladies. It is written by Michael Cohen, who authored the bestseller “The Power of Accepting Yourself.” “Rethink it!” teaches the reader how to transform his or her thinking and behavior — and therefore how to transform dysfunctional emotions into healthy, rational emotions. This book is especially enjoyable and beneficial for the average, lay reader.

There are several factors that I particularly like about this book. First, it is indeed practical. Michael Cohen goes out of his way to write in a clear and entertaining way. He frequently enumerates (1,2,3,4,…) the precise steps you need to take to surmount a specific psychological block or affliction. This might be a problem with dieting or smoking or drug abuse. He even covers such issues as fear of blushing, fear of embarrassment, panic attacks, and common phobias like agoraphobia (page 49). He also reveals his own techniques for relaxation and staying at peace with yourself — techniques which do not depend on any particular religious belief or affiliation. The book is applicable to literally anyone. Cohen reiterates the phrase "Rethink it!" throughout the text of the book to encourage the reader to reevaluate bad psychological habits and to fix them. He shows you exactly how to accomplish your behavioral and emotional goals.

Yet another factor I loved about this book was Cohen’s explanations as to how and why we develop psychiatric issues to begin with. Cohen describes how today’s dysfunctional emotions may have been, at one point in human history, beneficial or even life-saving (page 22).
