This is an excellent book for professionals.
It is like a text book for those who wish to work in the field of anxiety disorders.
It is strong on theory but weaker on techniques to manage disorders.
There are many case studies of success but not one of failure.
It is certainly not a self-help book but it does not claim to be.
So if that is what you are looking for, it is best to look elsewhere.

It is more likely that a practitioner will appreciate this more than a lay person who wishes to further their knowledge of psychological treatments.
This should be considered a classic in the field of cognitive therapy, and rightly so. There have been many advances in the cognitive therapy of anxiety disorders but this book is helpful in reminding the practitioner the basics of cognitive theory. This book shouldn't be used as a reference for anxiety disorders, or even their treatment (see Cognitive Therapy of Anxiety Disorders: A Practical Guide). I feel that it would be best as a tool for developing therapeutic skills and as a reminder of how a purist of cognitive therapy perceives the world of anxiety.

This book was an interesting book and, undoubtedly, an important book from the professional stand-point. However, from the layman's stand-point, I thought it was a little too intense. There were sections that I had to go back and reread several times in order to understand what the authors were trying to say. I think this was because I am a layman with only General Psych 101 as a background. I can not, however, speak as to its rating for a professional.

Anything by Beck is worth reading particularly regarding anxiety/depression; he is perhaps one of the luminaries. I found it to be very informed and informative so well worth it.
