This third edition contains all of the conciseness and clarity of the earlier editions, but with greater depth and scope. Any questions about how to use it in practice can be answered by using the demonstration videos and Companion Website. Comprehensive, authoritative, practical and friendly, this remains the essential guide to CBT.-- Dave Roberts
