Simply 'reading' the book isn't enough.

15 years ago I read the original version of this book, and followed through with the recommended exercises. This was by far the BEST treatment I could have asked for. I read many others before I found this book. I was able to change my destructive thoughts and therefore my mood. I've been in a slump lately and plan to read and DO this book again. Readers, don't expect miracles just by skimming through this book...you've got to jump in with both feet and follow the suggestions.

I have not found this book particularly helpful. While I do have some of the symptoms the author writes about, this is written more to encourage those who feel they have absolutely no hope for a 'normal' life. I would imagine, those cases are rare. I know my symptoms, I know I am successful in my career, and have a family. I have a lot going for me. I just tend to get 'sad' and crawl into my own shell. This book is not written for people like me. It's written for people who have blinders on, and think only bad things can possibly happen to them. I was excited to hear about CBT, thinking maybe this is the miracle I've been looking for. Maybe it is. But Dr. Burns does not do a good job explaining it's also for people like me. I am disappointed with this book.

    It's a good book.

    I think it's a great book. Plus, the questionnaire at the beginning is really amazing of how depressed you really are. I'm not quite done reading it, but soon I'll be finished with it.
