Books by Albert Ellis

Albert Ellis created Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) as a philosophy of living, which can
be self-taught to markedly reduce one's self-defeating thinking-feeling-behaving and to enhance
happiness and productivity in life. Thus, any of his books can be read and understood by almost
everyone. However, some books are more directly addressed to general readers. Such books are
marked with an asterisk.
