    I was very sincere with all the exercises and my OCD was manageable. My therapist had a checklist of the 10 distortions from your Feeling Good book and I was very impressed.

    At the time of writing this review, I'm currently a 3rd year psychiatric resident. I really like this book. Learning CBT is part of our 3rd year curriculum, and as part of that, a textbook is always essential. We were recommended to buy Judy Beck's, "Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, 2nd Edition" and I have to say that I did not particularly like that book. It reads as dogmatic, difficult at times to understand, difficult to generalize to all patients, and frankly unrealistic at times with its expections of patients' reactions to therapy. The Feeling Good Handbook, albeit much larger, reads far better than Judy Beck's book. Its down to Earth, intuitive, and easy to understand. Even after ready Beck's book, this book allowed me to better understand the concepts of CBT that were previously poor explained and expounded upon. This book may have been written as a self-help guide for consumers directly, but that doesn't detract from its extreme readability, and ability to teach CBT to clinicians as well. Plus, reading this book really help me create better expectations for patients during CBT, as I commonly recommend that they purchase it themselves. All in all, I highly recommend this book, and have encouraged all of my collegues to purchase and use it.

Feeling Good book by David D Burns, M.D

Burns also wrote a book called The Feeling Good Handbook. While there is a good deal of overlap of ideas in Feeling Good and The Feeling Good Handbook, the books do complement each other. Someone who is interested in learning the concepts and techniques might find it worthwhile to read both.
