Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great reference workbook This book was recommended to me and I am very happy with the purchase. The exercises have helped me to become more positive and happy. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to understand their moods and become more postive in life.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Was very disappointed in this Based on the other reviews, I expected a lot. I was hoping that this would help me with anxiety and possibly even help my husband with his fear of flying and the associated anxiety that he has. I felt like it was very elementary and was more or less just a collection of worksheets asking you to rate how you feel in different situations or monitor items. I've barely touched it, since I really don't find the value of this... I found that it lacked substance. I've read other more helpful books that actually help you identify tools to help you cope. Also, in terms of people who are working with a professional to address anxiety (I fall into this category) I find that jotting down notes during sessions to be helpful...no need to buy this "workbook". While it won't hurt your progress, I really didn't find there to be a lot of value there.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great help for anxiety I have always suffered from anxiety, but when I finally turned for help my physiologist recommended this as a work book for our sessions. It was a big help to read and work through exercises. Would definitely recommend as a help book to use along with a professional, not sure how much help it is on your own.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than your average Mood / Anxiety related book Straight forward, simple approach to identifying how your thoughts can cause anxiety, worry and mood issues. Simple in layout with charts, questionnaires to lead one through the exercise to determine what you are thinking is causing how you are feeling and or reacting. Helpful in understanding anxiety. Better than average approach without all the overhead of the background research and medical jargon that can be tough to get through in other books! Good one for anyone trying to sort out why they might be feeling down, or worried, or anxious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from (Almost) Essential Reading for Coping with Mood Disorder I used this as a text and it is excellent for leanring to cope with and about mood disorders. The techniques were presented clearly and simply. It was a very effective aid for me while coping with a recent bout of depression. CBT is effective for coping with many behavioural issues. WHile the focus is Mood Disorder, this is a great tool for dealing with the many stressors of moern living.
