Review of ‘F*ck Feelings: One Shrink’s Practical Advice for Managing All Life’s Impossible Problems by Michael Bennett, MD and Sarah Bennett | Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review’
Most books by psychologists, especially self-help books, are written in psycho-babble and are long on grand promises to help you get on the path to achieving life success. F*ck Feelings by Michael Bennett, MD and his humor writer daughter, Sarah Bennett, is anything but. Written in a pragmatic style, with bits of self-deprecating humor and salty language that make it a book you don’t want to leave lying around where your kids can access it, F*ck Feelings pulls back the curtains on life and tells it ‘like it is.’
F*ck Feelings: One Shrink’s Practical Advice for Managing All Life’s Impossible Problems by Michael Bennett, MD and Sarah Bennett/Key Takeaways, Analysis & Review by Eureka Books is a practical, easy-to-read summary of the book, and goes a long way to providing an iron to smooth the wrinkles out of your life roadmap.
First, some things in life can be change, but many can’t, and we have to learn to live with that fact. Secondly, we must be aware of the unintended consequences of our actions, even the well- meaning ones. Practical and nonjudgmental, this sounds like the book everyone needs to read. I give it five stars.
