Look Elsewhere

I barely made it halfway through this audiobook and couldn't take any more. Maybe it is just personal taste, but I found it very longwinded and repetitive. When I reached the part where the author started rambling on about his obsessive relationship with Ayn Rand, I knew this wasn't the tape for me. On a positive note, this tape did cause me to look elsewhere, and I eventually ended up purchasing "Ten Days to Self Esteem" (workbook, not audio) by Dr. David Burns. I recommend this workbook highly, as I am already seeing great improvements in my mood and self esteem. I hope this helps.

Something new surfaces every time I listen

This is one of Dr. Branden's finest works. Every time I listen to this program, I discover something new. Highly recommended as one of those books you should listen to at least once a year.
