Unlike traditional books where you read them from start to finish, sometimes in a very short time span because the book is so interesting, "Mind Over Mood" should be read over the course of a minimum of 6 months. This will allow you to achieve a higher rate of success and give yourself time to absorb the information you're learning and have time to put your new skills into action.
The premise of the book is that your thoughts ultimately control your feelings/moods and by changing the way you think (thought processes) you can change your feelings and how you react to situations (stress, anger, etc.).
Changing your habits and behaviour is not an easy thing to do and you will need patience and repetition to be successful, but it can be done with hard work and determination!
Good luck and I wish you success in your journey! :)
With these frustrating sometimes controlling conditions it really does help you work through it.
This is a good starter (CT/CBT) book, but for lasting effects the work needs to be practiced often enough to make a lifelong difference. As more complex situations arise or past situations come back to haunt a person after a new revelation or discovery about their past they thought was dealt with, the old problems can come back without practicing.
Do what the book says (or did I add that subconsciously?) photocopy the worksheet pages, not every behavioural/reactive issue is down to one event. And keep at it.

I use it as an adjunct to therapy which works well particularly for between session tasks.
I've used it to help people with depression, social anxiety, panic disorder, OCD, generalised anxiety disorder, grief, fertility problems, and life stage changes.
If you are going to buy a self help book, buy this one, do the exercises and really help yourself!
