really liked it

This is the seminal book (for the commercial, not technical, world). The theory of psychology promulgated in this book revolutionized the industry at the start of the 1980's and did away with the archaic theories still in use.

This book reached me in a way that a dozen psychologists who all based their methods on its teachings failed to do.

I understand that the market found the book too prolix, and so Burns wrote the more laic The Feeling Good Handbook. I did not find this book too prolix.
