"Yankura and the indefatigable Dryden do not only pay tribute to Albert Ellis with this book, but have also given an excellent review of his work and how this grew out of his personal development. It deals with major contributions to theory and practice, criticisms and rebuttals, and presents a no-nonsense overview of the overall influence of the grand old man, who is definitely one of the giants in our field. A select bibliography of Ellis''s work completes the book. The text is written eloquently and comprehensively, providing the reader a quick and compact insight into salient issues. I would recommend this book to novices as well as advanced psychotherapists of all persuasions alike." --Maurits Kwee in Behaviour Research and Therapy Albert Ellis is the founder of rational-emotive therapy, a therapy that is influential not only in its approach, but also as the precursor of the larger cognitive-behavioral therapy movement. This concise volume presents an overview of the life of Albert Ellis and highlights the events and experiences that influenced him to pursue a career in psychotherapy. The authors discuss Ellis''s theoretical and practical contributions to psychotherapy, and look at the famous ABCs of rational-emotive therapy--the key concepts of ego disturbance and discomfort disturbance--and Ellis''s views on therapeutic efficiency. A final chapter considers the overall influence of Ellis on the field of psychotherapy and provides a useful conclusion to a book that will prove invaluable for all therapists and counselors.
