This is a very practical introduction to Cognitive Behavioural Therapy through a series of lessons and worksheets. It doesn't have to be done in 10 days, really, and I felt taking my time with it was worthwhile.

CBT is all about changing the way you think to change the way you feel. It certainly worked for me. The theory is that no situation causes us to feel something, rather, the way we react to the situation is what causes our feelings. Take the example of a rejection. Rejections are not exact
I'm going through old paperwork and I found the exercises in this book that I did over 5 years ago with a therapist. I frequently come back to some of the tools I learned from this book especially a part on distorted thinking patterns.
Burns provides highly useful information for coming to terms with one's mood state and underlying causes of anxiety, although I found the "clinical" mode of the book a little off-putting.
bought this book for a class, lots of exercises and ideas- Will be using this book again, taking class again
Read this for work and it was a bit over the top... I don't know, it just didn't gel with me.

It didn't take all 10 days for me to see the errors in my thought processes...
