CLASSIC SELF-HELP FROM A RESPECTED PIONEER OF PSYCHOTHERAPY
All of us worry about something, big or small, every day. But much of the emotional misery we feel is an overreaction, and it can be significantly reduced, using the techniques you'll find in this landmark book.
World renowned therapist Dr. Albert Ellis, who created Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), believed that anger, anxiety, and depression are not only unnecessary, they're unethical, because when we allow ourselves to become emotionally upset, we're being unfair and unjust to ourselves. Thinking negative thoughts is a choice we can refuse to make. Applying the proven, time-tested principles of REBT is a simple, logical way to find true mental health and happiness.
REBT acknowledges the power of emotions, but it also helps us understand which feelings are healthy and which are not. This classic book teaches you how to:
If you can refuse to make yourself miserable, you're that much closer to making yourself happy - every day.

"The best of the best!"
This is one of the best books you can get if you are interested in REBT. You will find here all the key principles, methods and techniques that make Albert Ellis' work so important.
"Secondary thoughts and feelings about primary thoughts and feelings"
People upset themselves by their secondary thoughts and feelings about their primary thoughts and feelings. For example, irrational generalizations and judgmental requirements for life events create anxiety and stress. Rational views of these events eliminate unnecessary stress and anxiety. The concepts about judgements and feelings about life events are powerful and useful.
However, the book reads like one long footnote or symptom list. It should be edited.
A worthwhile read because the concepts are so psychologically useful in life.
