Item description for Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy by Tao Lin...

In Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy a 23–year–old person attempts to explain to himself the possible origins, ends, and cures of anger, worry, despair, obsession, and confusion, while concurrently experiencing those things in various contexts including a romantic relationship, a book of poetry, and the arbitrary nature of the universe.
“Tao Lin's poetry passes by slacker era irony and self–indulgent formalism to dig up something deeper and more human, even when that something seems on first reading to merely be depressed hamsters.”
—Jeffrey Brown, author of Clumsy and Little Things

“I hope this new publisher uses my blurb this time. I was a little sad that the other one didn't use it. They could have sold tens of copies if they'd put my blurb on that book. But this book is better; these poems are serious and funny and more than they appear. I am a big fan of Tao Lin's writing and this book makes me happy.”
—Matthew Rohrer, author of A Green Light and Rise Up

Reviews - What do customers think about Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy?

i felt the things that matter  Jun 12, 2008
i think a lot about this book and tao lin's other books

the first time i read this i was so excited i read it all in one sitting

it is hard for me normally to read more than three poems in one sitting

i normally stand up and do something else

there are a lot of poems that have multiple parts to it like in the books BAD BAD by chelsey minnis or ANGLE OF YAW by ben lerner but different because of the hampsters and sadness and other things

the poem 'are you okay?' made me so sad that i had to stop reading and lie down on the couch and think for a minute

my friend asked me if this book is funny like his other book of poety and i said 'no, no it is never funny. i didn't laugh once while reading it' and i did not realize that was true until i said it even though i lied a little

some parts are actually very funny, but not funny in a way that makes me laugh out loud, but just makes me smile and feel 'consoled'

i just opened the book and looked at 'ugly fish poem, part one' and read this sentence: "and i have swum fast; any speed that exists i have swum at that speed"

that makes me laugh i don't know why

this book made me sad a lot and i don't think i will look at it as much as 'you are a little bit happier than i am' but that is okay, because that book made me excited about life and stuff in ways that few things ever have, i don't know
This book makes me feel happy.  Jun 2, 2008
I felt sad and lonely before I read this book. After I read the last page, I felt happy. This book effectively helps me overcome feelings of sadness, despair, loneliness, alienation, and boredom. I think this book will be helpful to many people.

Good job, Tao.

marriott philadelphia west  May 11, 2008
i read this entire book at marriott philadelphia west. i was there for a wedding and couldn't sleep because marriott has bad pillows. this book helped me process the fact that i couldn't sleep and allowed me to focus on something else other than my own frustration. i enjoyed reading this book very much and will probably read it again soon.
Informative and educational  May 3, 2008
This slim volume will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about hamsters, and many things you didn't.
