Men are disturbed not by things, but by the views which they take of them. -Epictetus Do you often feel stuck up to your axle in problems? Do you feel anxious, depressed, guilty, or angry much of the time? Perhaps you can benefit from reading this book. Materials in this book were drawn from the theory and practice of rational-emotive therapy (RET). RET teaches that feelings of anger, depressions, guilt, and anxiety are caused directly by crooked thinking, and that you can learn to live a non self-defeating life if you re-educate yourself emotionally. If you learn how to challenge and contradict your irrational beliefs, and adopt a more rational philosophy instead, then you can change how you feel. The author, Gerald D. (Jerry) Kranzler, was a teacher in the Counseling Department at the University of Oregon. He received his doctorate in counseling psychology from the University of North Dakota in 1964, and taught at Indiana University for four years before moving to Oregon. He worked as a counselor and teacher in public schools, and has written numerous articles and chapters for professional journals and books.
