Provided perspective and helped a lot.

Loved this audible book. I took my time with it by listening to each chapter twice, and making the summaries the second time listening. The aim is not to get through the book quickly, but to really apply each chapter.
I’m now listening to the book for the second time and adding to my summaries and information recorded.

Saved my life

I have always been skeptical of how CBT can be effective for treating depression. I have been on and off anti-depressants, self medicating with alchohol and financially irresponsible due to my partying habits. I was slowly falling into deep depression with no clear purpose in life. After listening to the first few chapters of the audiobook I picked up a notebook and a pen and decided to start putting in even more free time to do some of the homework and worksheets the book provides. By the end of the book I realized that anti-depressants where only a temporary cure , partying and bad financial habits are the main reason of my mental downfall. Also I have found new hobbies that I love and I became more financially responsible.I also feel like I can see colors again which is a clear sign the depression is gone. This book has worksheets and exercises that make understanding CBT and applying it by oneself easy, fun and not too time consuming. I advise anyone willing to explore CBT for depression , anger or anxiety to consider getting this book.

A point by point imitation of 'Feeling Good'

Listening to this book after 'Feeling Good' brought to mind the work of mediocre students who, faced with the task of illustrating the ideas of a great thinker, lack the creativity to go beyond paraphrasing his words page by page

Not exactly what I needed.

Did not enjoy the performance. I was looking for help in dealing with others with cognitive issues.
