Editorial Reviews

Great comfort
"This is absolutely the most powerful and helpful book in helping the reader to identify and correct bad thought patterns that are emotionally and physically crippling. It's very user friendly with straight forward, easy to understand and no nonsense advice.

I will continue to read this book and work on the basic fundamentals until the day I die!"

Richard Killian
"Having been trained as a therapist during the golden days of the growth movement in the 70s, and experiencing the last 20 years in business, I very much appreciate the clear methodollogy of resolving the tendency to create "optional suffering". By drilling down on the demands you make of yourself and others, and shining a bright light on them, you can then following the exercises to build a new set of mental muscles that over time will overcome the tendency we all have to create pain for ourselves. Simple. Elegant. Clear. "

"I've read lots of books in many areas of psychology...from hypnosis to narrative to cognitive behavioral..and I think Edelstein hits it right on the nose. Cogent, concise writing and laser beam precision on how to solve the daily problems of living and thinking...The book is PRACTICAL with step by step processes that are easy to understand.

Definitely saved my sanity...

Highly recommend this one. "

What People are saying about this

Jerry Pico
"One of things that I like the most about this book is it's simple approach to dealing with complex issues...like anxiety. As the title suggests, this type of work can be practiced in very short increments...say three minutes or so, and can be implemented almost immediately. Which is a lot more time and cost effective than spending months or years in therapy. Obviously, I didn't resolve my anxiety issues in three minutes, but after implementing the practices recommended in this book on a regular basis over a couple of months I was able to change the way I let situations affect me and ultimately reduce unnecessary anxiety. This book is an easy read and offers effective tools for anyone to deal with stressful and anxiety producing situations that occur in the course of everyday life. It's the best self-help book I've ever read! "

"Of all the books that explain [Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy] in simple, clear, and highly usable form, Three Minute Therapy is one of the very best."
Ph.D. President, Albert Ellis Institute for Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy
Martin Blinder
"With a series of incisive insights Michael Edelstein cuts through the psychological jargon and makes clear how all of us can effect powerful changes in our psyches, in our lives and in the lives of our loved ones."
