KIRKUS REVIEW

The king of popular sexologists turns to ire, this time, and the therapy he has devised and christened R.E.T. (that's Rational Emotive Therapy, folks). The gist: don't blame it on your past, work it out in your present; if you understand it, you can lick it--that old stuff. The method: the ABC's of creating anger. A = Activating event. B = Beliefs about A (including rB--rational Beliefs and iB--irrational Beliefs). C = Consequence. ""An RET clinician can discover your rBs and lbs simply through a knowledge of your feelings and behavior at both points A and C."" Maybe. If the clinician is also a cryptologist. Here's our formula for this too-long tome: TeTrVi = Z. Tedious, Trendy, Virtually incomprehensible = ZZZZZZZZZZZ.
