Must have this book

Happiness is in the quality of your thoughts. If you can change your thoughts, you can change your life. And that's exactly what this book teaches you how to do.
I really enjoyed this book. It's filled with highly helpful information on how to cope with anxiety, depression and negativity in general. I realized that I have a lot of negative thoughts that I was not aware of, and now I'll apply what I read in the book to start having a more positive life.

Just the way I expected It

Would you consider the audio edition of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to be better than the print version?

I am not a kind of person who loves reading and so I would say this audio is best for me rather than its book. I also felt that the reader talked to me personally and concern about me. This self help book is an inspirational and really motivated me. Can't wait for the other audio book of same author.

Needs new narrator

What didn’t you like about Rob Drex’s performance?

The inflection in his voice when he tries to sound like a different character is somewhat painful.

Any additional comments?

Good information with the right narrator.

Insightful and great guide!

This book really helped me learn how to deal with intrusive thoughts. It taught me that the thoughts aren’t important and they’re not real. I recommend this book to anyone.

What about Rob Drex’s performance did you like?

I want to thank the author for making this audible since I have understood it better than reading. It motivated me to become a better man. Want more of this.

Thanks for the help!

If you could sum up Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in three words, what would they be?

This audio book helped me in realizing many things and where to focus once negativity will hit the ground. An almost 2 hour audio is really worth listening.

Very Insightful

This book is very intuitive. Depression/Mental Conditions are something that is not dealt with properly in society. If it was addressed early on and interventions, such as what is mentioned in this book, were taken then it would lead to better outcomes for the individuals involved. I deal with anxiety and stress and have for my whole life. I did not know how to manage my thoughts and feelings well.It is about time to have a book that truly understands and explains the importance of careful and mindful thinking. The author explained specifically and clearly the techniques in overcoming fear. I was not very familiar with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy until I read/listened to this book. It has provided an excellent base of the basic principles behind this therapy. I appreciate how the step by step awareness to change the mindset is well explained.
Thoughts become things. We manifest what we think the most. That is how powerful our brain is. That is what the book has taught me. I have already began to journal ways to incorporate this therapy to assist me in daily living.
In the book, there are ideas on how to change negative thought into positive ones. If you can learn how to release the negativity and start focusing on the positive things in life, this therapy will work well for you.

Wonderful and very informative book. I'm glad I purchased it. It helped me to understand . This method of therapy is explained in a way that someone not in the medical field can understand. I purchased the book "used" through Amazon at a reasonable price. Thank you, Amazon! and thanks to the author......Its worthy.........

Great aid in beginning to come out of depression.

It is a gold mine for someone with depression or other mood disorders who is looking for something beyond psychoanalysis that can deliver results fairly quickly.As a sufferer of chronic depression and anxiety, I found this book extremely helpful.

His CBT approach is very helpful in teaching you to analyze your thoughts and it teaches you how to think differently. The techniques and insight of this audiobook, along with general progress, has helped my anxiety tenfold.

I sadly found this almost impossible to listen to

ok, ideas in the book are good. However, the narration is soooo awful. For me it really put me off and I had to force myself to listen to it. It sometimes sounds like you're being read to my some faux-human pc speech program, sometimes even more monotone. His 'first person' voice for such statements like "what if nobody likes me?" are read in a condescending voice that I couldn't work out if it was a joke/dare. His female voice sounds like a bad (no not bad, more derogatory) impression of a flamboyant drag queen.
I've listened to a number of books on audible monthly plan, this is my first review, I feel that strong about it. I sincerely hope that it doesn't put someone off who needs the book's messages and techniques. I will need to buy this book and read it myself.

Useful but didn't like the reading tone

I am very open to the information provided in this book, but felt the tone in which it was read to be somewhere between patronising and a bit airy fairy. I forced myself to get past that and listen to the content, which is very good.

tool to apply the thinking strategy of CBT

This is an easy to read, powerful resource for anyone struggling with anxiety or depression. The book is extremely relatable; it is written in a warm and welcoming tone, encouraging and empowering you to learn new skills.

This audible inspires me to continue.

It definitely helps when you apply all the techniques as I have found in my own life! I highly recommend it to all. The words all have meaning that my brain can process. After I listen to the words I feel emotions.

I couldn’t bare listening to the sound of this guy’s voice . Nothing to do with CBT.
