Publisher's Summary

"Labeling yourself is not only self-defeating, it is irrational. Your self cannot be equated with any one thing you do. Your life is a complex and ever-changing flow of thoughts, emotions, and actions. To put it another way, you are more like a river than a statue." - David D. Burns, M.D.

"Achievements can bring you satisfaction, but not happiness." - David D. Burns, M.D.

"The price you pay for your addiction to praise, will be an extreme vulnerability to the opinions of others. Like any addict, you will find you must continue to feed your habit with approval, in order to avoid withdrawal pangs." - David D. Burns, M.D.

"Much everyday anger results, when we confuse our own personal wants with general moral codes." - David D. Burns, M.D.

"But these abnormal emotions feel just as valid and realistic as the genuine feelings created by undistorted thoughts, so you automatically attribute truth to them. This is why depression is such a powerful form of mental black magic." - David D. Burns, M.D.

Too abbreviated to do the original content justice

I get it. The point of this is to be shorter than the original, but I have read the original book and this summary version is simply too pared-down to be very useful. I see this as the kind of thing that would be useful as a review after reading the original book, but you just can't really take in the information without the examples of implementing the techniques that the original book provides.

Happy o got the summary instead of the book

I heard so many good things about the book, but i am so happy i got the summary instead. I think I wouldn't be able to listen to the whole book because it is targeted to a specific group of people where I don't belong. there are some good and interesting key points but at times it can pull you down and i didn't like the chapter with the explanation of the antidepressants.

I finished this book in the time I was brushing my teeth. I got almost nothing out of it. you could get more from the Kindle edition sample of feeling great by the same author that is David Burns
