Publisher's Summary

You have the incredible power to change the way you think, perceive, and react to stress - for the better - through cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT has been known to be widely successful in the treatment of problems associated with anxiety, depression, mood, personality, addiction, weight, and emotions. Until recently, access to CBT was only available through professional therapy. Now with The Brain Mechanic, Spencer Lord delivers a concise, entertaining, and easy-to-use guide that demystifies cognitive behavioral therapy. With simple exercises, clear explanations, and helpful insight, Lord makes it easy for you to fit this technique into your daily life to improve your mood, broaden your communication skills, and enrich your relationships.

Best Intro To CBT I Know

I already own the print book, so this was an additional treat. I've read over a dozen books on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavior Therapy, and this is the best one of all. Short and concise, it really packs a punch. Gets right to the point. As a bonus, the author narrates his own work really well. If you've been thinking about checking out REBT or CBT, this is the place to start. I doubt if one could do better.

Get this book.

I've studied the sorts of topics this book addresses for nearly 20 years, and this book touches on many of the most important issues, and it will convince you, that you are in charge, you are the 'CEO' of your grey matter, and you can influence your choices by simply changing them, and by reframing them as well. If you want to know how to rewire your subconcious without really understanding the subconscious, this book will give you the tools. I've already listened 3 times, and I know I will listen many more.
