    "So boring"
    What didn’t you like about George Newbern’s performance?

    So obviously reading a script & trying to sound interesting. Instead sounds condescending and patronising.


    Any additional comments?

    I don't know how this has managed to get so many good stars.. it's boring... and because it's just a book being read out loud by an awful narrator, I couldn't hold onto any practical tips. It just all melted into some monotonous pulp. Also there are references to diagrams - hardly relevant on an audio book! Waste of money...

    "Brilliant"
    Would you listen to Feeling Good again? Why?

    Yes, life changing


    What did you like best about this story?

    It's ability to help you create your own "Matrix"


    What about George Newbern’s performance did you like?

    Pleasant voice, able to listen for long stretches.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Many


    Any additional comments?

    Most other self-help books after this one are some form of a rehash of this book. I have always been a huge Anthony Robbins fan, and now I see from where much (not all) of his material comes. I found the presentation and supplemental PDF delivered the messages in a more digestible and applicable way than most other books and authors on the subject.

    "Very helpful"

    It helps to understand the basis of depression. It has personally helped me to challenge my thoughts. I used to believe that I had some kind of chemical imbalance but once I looked deeper I realized I was constantly having subconscious negative thoughts.

    I track my mood with the Joie app and have noticed that no other method of treatment has beaten the techniques in this book. Drugs didn't come close. I hope you get as much benefit as I did.

    "Stick to the truth ..."

    Interesting and engaging topic discussing how our thoughts affect our emotions.

    Specifically, how our distorted thoughts create our distorted emotions including depression.

    Cognitive behavioral therapy has taught me that I have a "choice" in how I view and respond to the world and to other people and that the choice I make has a direct impact on my emotional wellbeing.

    It's all a matter of perspective:)

    "Definitely need the handbook that goes with it"

    This book is legendary. And cognitive behavioral therapy, is legendary. The problem with the Book on audio is that you can't follow with more than half of the entire book. He keeps referring to pages in chapters that you don't have.

    "Great book for those dealing with depression!"

    I highly recommend this book if you struggle with depression. It is very helpful. Note, though, it'll take some work on your part, but it's well worth it.
    Having read the Handbook first, and now having listened to this book, I actually recommend the Handbook version first. It forces you to do activities that will help you, whereas this book merely talks about it (in detail). I still liked this book, though, because it reminded me of everything I had done in the Handbook, which is about all I can do while I'm driving, anyhow. (Last I checked, the Handbook is not available in audio.)

    The reader of this audio book is excellent. He actually sounds engaged, as though he's Dr. Burns himself, giving you the advice right then and there. Kudos to him. (My only pet peeve about him is he pronounces "often" as "off-ten." I was glad he didn't also say "soff-ten," "liss-ten," or "sall-mon.")

    IMHO, you can skip the last 2-3 hours of this audio, which deals with antidepressant drugs. It's full of biology and chemistry lessons and lists of side-effects. He also talks ad nauseam about when or why to take drugs for depression. It's ad nauseam because his answer is always the same: therapy alone can work, or therapy plus drugs, but never drugs alone. Unfortunately he felt the need to say that over and over and over again.

    "Very informative in my case"

    Listening to your book it's so helpful in my case because it was very confusing to me of what is my problems , after listening to it I concluded that I don't have a deep depression problem I'm just sad because of the situation in my life.
