Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best book for mood disorders PLUS other problems. This book is #1 I personally used this book to help get me through my last major depression and suggest it to all my clients who suffer mood and anxiety, self-esteem, etc.. problems. Although it is written for a depressed or anxious audience, (the examples relate to people suffering these problems) the book can be extrapolated for many other problems. This books provides very specific tools and strategies - apathy, procrastination, criticism, self esteem, anger, fears, suicidal thoughts, and many, many more. Plus there is a questionnaire mid-book with associated chapters to better manage underlying problems i.e. people pleasing, seeking approval, need to be loved, workaholism, problems with self worth, etc... Many of my clients do not suffer mood or anxiety problems but relationship issues at home or work, or many other problems. I often suggest they read chapter 3. Chapter 3 is gold. Understanding the connection between thoughts and moods. If you are a friend or family member of someone suffering mental illness - this book will also help you understand what your loved one is going through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Among all other seemingly promising self-help books, Dr. Burn's book is perhaps the best book on overcoming depression. It has covered in details on different kinds of depression as well as effective and immediate ways to combat the disease affecting 20% of the population. It's a long book, so it may be difficult to read if under depression. Trust me, once you finish it, you will thank yourself for forwarding the very first step of self-love and self-help.
