This is a good book and it's a good self-help book and I've listened to it a couple times already but it feels a little bit tired when you listen to it too often. ( )

A lot of good analysis on the thoughts and behaviours of depressed people. This book not only explains what happens to you and your thoughts when you're depressed and what to do about it but it also discusses how to prevent depression from re-occurring once you've gotten better. I like to review various parts of this book whenever I feel mildly depressed so I can remember what is happening to me and what I can do about it instead of just sitting around and feeling bad.

There are a lot of (somewhat lengthy) writing exercises that can be used to get going in your daily life. I tried a few of the exercises and while they did motivate me to work for the most part, I felt that a seriously depressed person would probably find them far too much effort to do, and would likely not do them at all. But I guess that's what most of the struggle is: doing something-- anything-- instead of nothing is the most difficult for those who are depressed. While this book offers various techniques to get going, it is ultimately up to yourself to try them out.

List of cognitive distortions:
1) All-or-nothing thinking: You look at things in absolute, black-and-white categories.
2) Over-generalization: You view a negative event as a never-ending pattern of defeat.
3) mental filter: You dwell on the negatives and ignore the positives.
4) Discounting the positives: You insist that your positives don't "count."
5) Jumping to conclusions: (a) Mind-reading--you assume that people are reacting negatively to you when there's no definite evidence for this; (b) Fortune-telling--you arbitrarily predict that things will turn out badly.
6) Magnification or minimization: You blow things way out of proportion or you shrink their importance inappropriately.
7) Emotional reasoning: You reason from how you feel--ex. "I feel like an idiot, so I really must be one," "I don't feel like doing this, so I'll put it off."
8) Should statements: You criticize yourself or others with should's, shouldn't's, must's, ought's, and have to's.
9) Labeling: You identify with your shortcomings; instead of telling yourself, "I made a mistake," you tell yourself, "I'm a jerk, a fool, a loser."
10) Personalization and blame: You blame yourself for something you weren't entirely responsible for, or you blame other people and overlook ways that your own attitudes and behaviors contribute to a problem.

My mother got this book to deal with her anxiety, so I was curious and read it. For the most part, I think it's pretty silly, but it did teach me an important thing-- that everyone has control over their own emotional and psycological well-being. We're brought up to believe that mental illness is just that- an illness, completely out of our control.

But, not to denigrate anyone with mental illness, a great deal of it IS under our control- and that continuing to tell people that they have no control will contribute to their problems. Cognitive behavioral therapy won't work for everyone, but I think it's a very helpful approach which should definitely play a prominent role in psychology's extensive repetoire. ( )

The edition I read was a bit dated so I rolled my eyes when I read the examples, but it is a worthwhile book to read. It helped me keep things in perspective. ( )

I am embarrassed about loving a self-help book, but I do.

This book is brilliant. Practical advice and steps to help you control your own thoughts.
Even if you think you are in full control of your own mind it will probably be interesting to you as it gives you some idea of how cognitive therapy works and why it is so much more effective than everything that came before.

I don't think he's right about every feeling you have being brought about by your thoughts but, regardless of that, controlling them can only be useful. ( )

Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Revised and updated is the second edition of Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, with only minor changes and a new introduction. It is not a separate work, so please do not separate the two editions of this work.

On the other hand, The Feeling Good Handbook IS a separate work from Feeling Good, as it is a companion book to this one.
