I've had this book for many many years. My first "therapist" gave it to me. I read a bit then. But, recently found it again and decided to finish it.

This book helped me through a pretty serious bout with depression that I had back in 2000. The thing I liked most about it is that it gave me work to do. Coming out of depression often requires a couple of approaches. Prozac helped on one front and this sort of cognitive therapy/work helped on the other.

I recommend this one a lot to clients struggling with depression. He outlines a lot of great skills to empower people to DO something about depression (more than just medication).

I will admit at some points I was pretty depressed reading this book not the kind of writing style I can breeze through at all. although I did pick up many helpful tips so it wasn't a total waste.

Yes, it's a self-help book... but it helped. It is uniquely well-suited to the student, as it contains a series of manageable assignments.
