Incredible book

This book is a life changer. Yes it's that accessible and rich in content. My only regret is that I was never taught this in my early formative years. On occasion I found myself crying and also laughing out loud.

Even if you feel you have a great understanding of relationships and have a successful one. The practice of REBT and its value is realised when you stop its practice. However, it is your choice and yours alone to invest in yourself and buy this book. Can you be so confident that you or your relationships do not need help?

The audio book helped me a lot, and I will also buy the book too, since some of the practise sessions at the end of each chapter are best visualised in paper format.

Classic REBT

Even though another doctor shares this book with Dr Ellis, you can find pure REBT here.

Great. Not completely objective.

Loved this book on so many levels. However, the author needs to examine his irrational belief about abortion in Chapter 7. Does this comment seem random? Good. Now you know what it's like to hear the author's poltical beliefs duct-taped onto Chapter 7. ;) It was ironic that the author made such an illogical jump in a book on pure rationality. He lost some credibility with me at that point. Overall, however, the book is a work of art on thought organization. Definitely worth a read!

It is okay

For me this was okay but not outstanding. The voice performance was nicely done. There isn’t anything wrong with it but someone may need just this set of examples and exercises.

Great for couples and professionals

Useful book for learning how to use REBT with couples or for couples to use to supplement there sessions with an REBT therapist. My only criticism is that the narrator might have read it a bit more slowly. To cope I would say listen to it a second time.
