I own a copy

** spoiler alert ** When I first read this book, it was difficult to understand. I was young without any comprehension of bipolar or why it was happening to me. Then, the concept on dealing with difficult people and "disarmament" was stated in this book. I read it, and then re-read it on how to disarm those who intimidated me. It worked perfectly when I tried it. I kept reading. I discovered that the tasks Dr. Burns asks of us should be viewed with a "trial run" or a "try it and see" mentality.

In his previous editions, there were no "confidence measures'. Later editions may include these measures. A "confidence measure" is when you rate yourself from "0 to 10" with 10 being the best, and then you see where you are and what you have to work on. A rating of 7+ means you are confidence with your choices. Anything with a 6 or below rating, means you may need some revisions on your choices.
