Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was a Godsend for me. I had struggled with depression,
anxiety,inferiority feelings,etc. for 23 years before I read this book. I had previously read a little bit of it, but that didn't do much good. I intellectually understand the principles of cognitive psychology, but it wasn't until I read the entire book, and read it with an open mind, that I felt some relief.
I've been to a lot of different psychiatrists,psychologists, etc. but nothing had ever done much for me. I've been on just about every Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor (SSRI), such as Prozac,Paxil,Zoloft, and Luvox, plus other types of psychiatric meds, but nothing ever did much, and a lot of them caused serious side effects.
It really helped me to read the introduction to the book. Why? Because Dr. Burns details all the scientific research that has been done that confirms the effectiveness of cognitive therapy, also known as cognitive behavioral therapy and rational-emotive behavior therapy.
The essence of cognitive psychology is that the painful emotions we feel are the result of our thoughts and attitudes about the events in our life. It's not that life events don't have any effect on us, but they don't have to overwhelm us or cause us to feel miserable. Some people will say, "But what about the biochemical aspect of emotions?" Dr. Burns devotes over 200 pages to psychiatric medication; after all, he is a psychiatrist, and he does prescribe medication for some of his patients, but he never gives them medication alone. People who are treated only with medication are more likely to relapse if they go off their medication.
This book was selected by mental health professionals as the number one self-help book, out of 1000 books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
...This book is the "IT" book of psychiatry and
psychology. More psychiatrists recommend this book to their clients
than any other. It is also the bestselling book on psychology or
psychiatry that exists! Instead of writing another review on this
book, I decided to "Do It" so to speak. If this review can
help anybody, than it was worth the writing.
In the forward, Burns
talks in detail about a comprehensive study that was made on this
book. This is in the 1999 forward. Eighty people were given this book
to read in twenty-eight days. 70% recovered from a major depressive
episode from just reading this book in that time. The exercises were
optional. Before you order this book, Burns does stipulate that if you
have even had "moderate depression" for several weeks, than
you will need professional help in order to help you get through the
program. Also, any suicidal thoughts or tendencies. I am fortunate. I
took the BDC on page 20 and scored 58. Now, this is "severe
depression". The BDC is the "Burns Depression
Checklist". I have also been diagnosed as having a "Major
Depressive Disorder" by many psychiatrists. But I have help. Both
a therapist and a psychiatrist. So intead of just writing yet one more
review based on my opinions, why not do the program and pass on the
results? I e-mailed a daily report to my friend and follow Amazon.com
reviewer, Edgar Bridges. I began both reading and doing the exercises
on October 12th, 2000. I scored a 55 on the BDC one week after
starting the program. This is still "severe" depression. Two
weeks after starting, I got a 35 on the BDC!!!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I'd seen this book before. I'd browsed through it back in 1991 and didn't find anything profound, but I wasn't seriously depressed at the time either. In June 2001 it was a different story. I'd been feeling suicidal since April. I was away from home on business and considered ending it all in a Minneapolis hotel room, but didn't want my wife have the hassle of shipping my body 1,000 miles back home.
I forced myself to take a walk and saw "Feeling Good" in a nearby bookstore. "What the hell," I thought, "for less than $10 this is worth a try." Back in my hotel room I took the depression test and scored 64 - severe depression. I read much of the book that night, took the self-test again the next day and scored in the 40s. With a 20 point drop in less than 24 hours, I again had hope. I got home, got counseling, got medication.
Although I was still depressed, it was less severe and I wasn't as suicidal. In July of 2001 I bought "Ten Days to Self Esteem" and went from a depression score of 25 to 17 in ten days of doing the written exercises everyday. It took about 9 months but with exercise, meds, counseling, support from friends and family, and the perspective offered by the events of that September 11, I started getting scores showing very little depression, much less anxiety and better relationships. Burns' approach has been an important part of that process for me.

I thought this book was beyond exellent! I have to agree with another reviewer aswell that you can read it over and over again.
There is so much information and knowledge in this book that it does take some time to read, to beable to 'soak it all in' and to start applying it into your life, but it WILL change you and your thinking forever.
It is one of the best you will ever get your hands on!
