3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Sylvester on Aug. 4 2009
Format: Paperback
I have completed most of the book up to the seventh chapter (up to p. 154) I did all the exercises up to this point and I have looked and did some of the exercises from that point to the end of the book.
Just reading it has really helped me understand the causes of my tendency to have paranoid interpretations. But doing the exercises allowed me to go further and better integrate the notions explained by Dr Freeman. Even if I have not yet finished it completely, the textbook allowed me to better understand the mechanisms of fear by helping me understand my own fears. And this was psychologically really liberating. I feel more at ease with people and I sense that people feel more at ease with me too. If you are caught with the problem of having paranoid interpretations about your relationships, don't give up about solving it. This book can really help you. If you know somebody with that problem, of course, it will be an invaluable resource for you in helping that person.
Even if I am satisfied with what I got from the job I have done with the book for now, I surely intend to finish it and do the exercises that remain as soon as possible. When it is done, I will update this review.

Repetitive, but maybe that's needed. Lots of useful advice and exercises so that you stay engaged. It was very helpful. Much more helpful than reading a general CBT book.

Delusional disorders July 4 2013
By Cassandra J Nowak - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Simple to understand. I was looking for a book to help me to understand what a family member is experiencing and this book defined why they might be suspicious and what factors may contribute to the anxiety they also feel at times. Very easy to understand and helpful, now I need to see if perhaps, the family member will read it.

A great review that explains how different situations can bring on paranoid thoughts. I like the flow charts and case examples. It provides for very good information. Worth the purchase. I think the flow charts could be used in psychotherapy sessions.
