I can see it being intimidating for some people. 1) It's quite thick 2) one has to be prepared to do a lot of reading as well as exercises. While CBT may not work for everything, I believe everyone will find something useful in this book. Also keep in mind you don't need to do the whole book, just the relevant sections.
- I recommend buying the earlier edition (the one with Dr. Burns on the cover). This edition is very flimsy and the paper is so thin and tears easily.
- Buy the handbook over the classic 'Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy'. The handbook is more comprehensive and a better format and has exercises. Or get both if you want the classic to read while traveling etc. The Handbook is quite bulky but the classic is small but a bit hard to read (it's designed and formatted like an old paperbacks from the 70s - even though it's new)
- If you find the books intimidating or prefer a different format, I highly recommend the podcast. he covers a lot of the same material and it might be easier for some
