Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Don't get mad or get even--get placid using these authors' techniques for defusing difficult situations. Ellis, the "grandfather of Cognitive Behavior Therapy," and Lange explain how to defuse your own anger, guilt, or depression, how to control your reactions when people persist in "pushing your buttons." The skills defined here can be used in work, home, or social situations. The chapters are filled with work sheets to help readers define the onset of inappropriate responses and practice alternative, healthier behaviors or responses. Factual, practical, and feasible. Denise Perry Donavin --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
The premise of this book is that events or people don't make up you angry or upset, it's what you think about them that does. WIth this in mind, Ellis and Lange lay out a simple approach that you can use to keep on a more even keel. The essence is that you can challenge your own thinking, which often has at its root some sort of irrational belief in the way things should be. Then replace those beliefs with more rational ones. It is a non-manipulative, ethical approach. You can practice this technique on "small" problems and gain confidence that you will handle larger problems better.

Not every method works for everyone however, this work is excellent for getting you into the ballpark of greatly turning down the mental noise from our own and well as others, pushing our hot buttons! It's simple and straight to the point and surprising how well these techniques work for each and every occasion! I should have negotiated a cut for the amount of times that I've recommended this book to my clients!

All the best and thanks Dr. Ellis!

I have borrowed this book from the library and was so impressed by the ideas that I decided I need my own copy for reference. I found it very helpful and applicable to the most difficult situations in my life. I feel much calmer after reading it and using techniques it offers.

I've read quite a few self-help books over the years but none helped me with my thinking the way this one did. I wish I had gotten this book years ago it would have saved me a lot of angst. It wasn't written recently, but it is a classic I would recommend it to anyone who is serious about looking honestly at themselves and are willing to change their thinking.

This continues in the theme that Albert Ellis built his career on. It endoreses rational cognitive therapy self administered. Briefly, it is not what happens but how we think about what happens that determines how we feel and how we behave. Get control of the thinking and you can minimize the extent to which other people can set us off and control our behavior. Generally good message
