This popular presentation of cognitive therapy addresses the crippling effects of regrets about the past. The therapeutic approach, developed by Aaron T. Beck, psychiatrist at the University of Pennsylvania who provides the preface, is demonstrated in chapters that present situations wherein the destructive behavior described by the title is accompanied by techniques for change. Coming to terms with past failures and other disabling events requires action to ``unblock'' the past and to gain perspective. Practical exercises and programs to promote forward thinking and peace of mind are included in this useful exposition of cognitive therapy. Freeman ( Cognitive Therapy of Cognitive Disorders ) teaches at the University of Pennsylvania; DeWolf writes for the Philadelphia Daily News. First serial to Ladies' Home Journal. (Aug.)
