Journal Entry 1 by sallybeetle62 from Kansas City, Kansas USA on Sunday, February 27, 2022
I liken this book as a sequel to David Burns' previous book, Feeling Good (published 11/20/2021).

It is definitely not a sit-on-your-hands and read type book. It can take much time and thought processes to go through the exercises and get the intended result. It might be a better idea to read through the entire book the first, then do the exercises on the next read through. That way, your brain is not dealing with surprises with each new exercise, but is somewhat prepared. I liken it to a routine physical exercise program; building muscle memory and brain connections the first 1-2 times. However, Mr. Burns wants you to do the exercises before you read his analysis of the actual therapy patient.

Trigger Warning for Next Paragraph:
Most of the therapy premises appear to be sound. However, Mr. Burns is a self aggrandizing and biased therapist. Some of his statements are very sexist and out-of-touch with reality. For example, in a session with a real life patient in front of an audience, he bullies the highly germophobic person to thoroughly touch the insides of a public toilet, gooey contents of a public trash can, and much more; then, he guilts / bullies them into smearing their face without washing their hands. Most of his stories end with the audiences cheering and shedding tears.
