Nota do editor

Respect your feelings…

A shrink and a comedy writer don’t hold back in this funny, no-nonsense guide to “getting your head out of your @ss” so you can respect your feelings without wasting time babysitting them. If you spend your hours watching TV instead of being productive, this book will show you how to get sh*t done.

Descrição

Although other self-help books claim to reveal the path to happiness, F*ck Feelings warns that convincing yourself that there is such a path will actually lead you to feel like a true failure. What the Bennetts can promise you is that you can manage any situation life throws at you if you can keep your sense of humor, bend your wishes to fit reality, restrain your feelings, manage bad behavior, and do what you think is right.

Life is hard. It's not fair. Our feelings cloud our rationality, and we become tangled in our efforts to achieve the impossible or change the unchangeable. In this groundbreaking, entirely sensible, and funny book, the Bennetts open the shrinks' secret solution manual and show you how to find a new kind of freedom by working toward realistic goals and doing the best with what you can control. They address the most common problems Dr. Bennett's patients bring to his private practice and give you a script for going forward.

With no-bullshit advice from a Harvard-educated shrink freed of all jargon and patronization by his smart-ass, comedy writer daughter, F*ck Feelings is the cut-to-the-chase therapy session you've been looking for.

Contains mature themes.

    The authors sense of humor is not for everyone I found it hard to get through this book at times because of it, often times annoying but adds a nice touch at times. Covers multiple topics very well and gives an array of solutions and real life examples. Really liked the scripts the author included that you can say to someone given a specific situation

    Definitely good reference and/ or book to keep in the library!

    Fuck this book!
    This book encourages the feeble-minded. Legitimately states that never "drinking again is a bad goal". Actually list what you want and can't have". This book offers the perfect excuses, if you're aiming at a mediocre life.
    I could not get through the second chapter after he stats ignorance is "OK"
    This was a complete waste of my time save yourself the pain on your ears.

    Honestly the only reason why this isn’t a 5 star review is because I spent a lot of time just listening to things that isn’t relevant to me.
    The book is simply too wide in it’s subject matter, which gives a lot of blah time when listening.
    Another thing that would probably bring the score up was if the author used genderless terms instead of jumping between he and she all the time, I mean, just use they, it works for anyone you may be talking about.

    That being said, the book is highly amusing and does give some great perspective to how to handle shit thrown your way in life.

    I honestly don’t normally look at self help books and that category, however the title caught my eye as sounding amusing and the content did not disappoint in that way.

    Six-word review: Worth keeping an open mind for.I'm not much of a reader in the self-help genre, but I had to buy this book because its brightly expressive cover just rang my chimes, given the mood I was in when browsing in a bookstore. I flipped it open and saw a page with these lead-ins to bulleted lists:Here's what you wish for and can't have:Here's what you can aim for and actually achieve:Here's how you can do it:This formulation struck me as eminently--indeed, blindingly--simple and straightforward and essentially sold me.What I didn't realize at first glance was that this was the template for the whole book. Chapter by chapter, topic by topic, the author sets up each so-called impossible problem with general remarks and anecdotal examples, and then come those bulleted lists. Not much in the way of denial or delusion is apt to stand up against them; they are exceptionally BS-resistant and seemingly reality-tested. In forty years of clinical practice, the principal author, a Harvard-educated psychiatrist, has probably heard just about everything and dealt out treatments to hundreds of patients. Now here we have his diagnoses and prescriptions, voiced with wisdom and humor, in hardcover, for the cost of approximately ten minutes with a mental health professional in private practice.I've spent a lot of time thinking about the classic Serenity Prayer (which, although used by twelve-step programs, was not original with them), and so I took note of this remark in the chapter called "Fuck Serenity":Remember that the actual Serenity Prayer, which is central to twelve-step methodology, isn't a prayer to end stress and anger, but for the clarity and humility to deal with whatever life inevitably throws at you. (page 143)In reflecting on this, I realized that without saying it in so many words, Dr. Bennett has written a book that essentially spells out the application of the Serenity Prayer to life situations of all kinds. Exposing our wishful thinking and magical beliefs for what they are, his template makes a firm distinction between what we can change and what we cannot, and then points to the all-important how.There's probably no one so unfortunate and miserable as to need all the guidance in this book, but I, for one, found none of it useless or boring. I was too busy noticing the many ways it does apply to me, appreciating the reminders to be proud of the good efforts I do make instead of flogging myself for the failures, and wondering how to hold Dr. Bennett's good counsel in mind as I venture on into the fray.I wouldn't recommend this book to everybody, only to those who have impossible problems.Inexplicable breakup, incompetent boss, impairing illness, realizing you're being a jerk, knowing you need help and not wanting to go, knowing he needs helps and refuses to go, worrying about a loved one's addiction . . . things like this are snakes that creep into even the jolliest gardens. Dr. Bennett calls a snake a snake, tells you frankly that you can't banish it with a magic wand, and then explains in plain language how to wrangle it or just get it to leave quietly.And yes, the author's language is a little bit startling, but he has a reason for it. If you're attracted to this book for its content, don't let the cover get in your way. P.S. Note that the title says managing, not solving. That's the key: learning how to live with things we can't fix, while fixing the things we can.

    Started out funny, with some good advice, then some bad advice, then it got repetitive - not very creative in going over different aspects of different types of problems. I skimmed a lot.

    Brilliant. Not only is this book funny throughout, it’s very insightful and practical. I’ve lived long enough to observe that most of what is said here is true and I’ve learned a boat load more from reading it.

    Nu mi-a placut deloc aceasta carte. Nu pot suporta tonul negativ cu care sunt luate la misto incercarile oamenilor se a se redresa si de a cauta ajutor in carti sau in terapie.
    Autorul pleaca de la idee ca este normal sa apara probleme in viata si ca abordarea noastra ar fi zici fuck it la toate..... serios???
    Cartea pare scrisa de un psihiatru care s-a saturat sa auda problemele pacientilor si sa dea vina pe ei pt ca iau prea in serios sentimentele pe care le au....
    nu ofera solutii adevarate, doar ia la misto abordarile din alte carti de self help si spune ce nu merge... eventual doar ia-o mai usor...si nu te mai stresa... si asta e tot...
    carte de rahat....

    Not my cup of tea. The book was too dry and didn't live up to the irreverent title. Also, unless one of the sections applied to my life it was useless, and even one the section was slightly applicable it was too general, unless one of the "examples" exactly aligned with my situation (and none of them did).PopSugar Reading Challenge 2016 Task 13: A self-improvement book

    I'm generally not a self-help reader, but the title of this one sucked me in. I don't think there's a soul that knows me that would call me a mushy, emotional personality (unless it's covered in fur); it's not that I don't care, but I tend to be crap at expressing it and find I'm most comfortable with things I can fix. So I found myself interested, of course, in a book that sort of spoke to me - shouted, really - right from it's bold yellow cover. My overall impressions of the book: well-written, bluntly stated, common sense advice that might be hard to hear for many but couched in dry, humorous, often irreverent narrative. Each section follows a very precise format of introduction, list of what people would like in a dream-world, list of achievable goals, 3 real-life examples (which are amalgamations of patient stories, and therefore anonymous), further discussion relevant to those three examples, and finally, a form letter you can send/read to yourself or whomever it is that's driving you bonkers. Sometimes there are charts of appropriate and inappropriate responses to certain situations and boxed out areas of additional information. This makes for an extraordinarily organised layout, and the writing is hilarious, but it also makes for a repetition that I often found tedious, making the book easy to put down which meant it stayed on my currently reading list for approximately 300 times longer than it should have. Still there was a lot of good, solid information and truth to be found and a section or two (or three) will definitely be referred back to in the future.
