It's actually Ten Steps, because each step may take more than a day. But it's all time well spent.
What this book does that is different from Feeling Good is - it gives us exercises to fill in.
And the great thing is that the more committed one is to do the exercises, the more benefits one gets from working with this book. This is intensive, because so many insights start going "ka-boom" in the brain that it is quite earth-shaking just to experience that. Then one gets to work on them and change them for the better, which can also be quite intensive - basically one must be willing to think and write.
So it is like going to psychotherapy. It involves working on your own thinking patterns, and also improving your own understanding about emotions and how they come about and are perpetuated.
Though it is focussed work, it is wonderfully rewarding.

It was so hard for me to initially recognize my distorted thinking patterns, but now I can recognize and label them almost instantly and I definitely operate in them much much less than before. I have written all in this book and will keep this one permanently in my library for a reference or if I need some encouragement.
Some pages took me hours to complete, because I was in denial that "my way" of seeing things was wrong. When I finally gave in, that the author was right, and did the work, I FINALLY started to see. It's like a veil has been lifted off my eyes. If you aren't going to do the work, the very hard work involved, please don't buy the book because you will think it's not good and give it a bad rating when in my opinion that would be undeserved.
Oh and in my opinion there is no way to finish this in ten days. For me it has taken months and I'm still working in it.
If you don't have a therapist to do the exercises with have a friend or spouse go over it with you. You will get results.
