From the reviews:

"Readers interested in gaining information on ‘mainstream’ cognitive behavior theory (CBT) topics … will not be disappointed. However, the diversity of topics covered is broad enough that those interested in topics outside the mainstream are not likely to be disappointed either. Even seasoned CBT clinicians and researchers are likely to find applications of CBT in this volume that are new to them. … it provides information of interest to a wide range of readers – from novices to experts." (Christina S. McCrea, PsycCRITIQUES, Vol. 51 (8), 2006)

"Cognitive Behavior therapy (CBT) has been reported to be among the most widely practiced therapy techniques in the United States. … At approximately 450 pages, the encyclopedia is concise in size, yet comprehensive in scope. … A list of references for further research is provided at the end of every article. … it provides an excellent and broad overview and would fit the needs of students, therapists, or patients who wish to learn more about the applications of cognitive behavior therapy." (Lorraine Evans, ARBA online, March, 2007)
