Review of 'Feeling good : the new mood therapy / David D. Burns' on 'GoodReads'

4 stars

This was a pretty interesting book about the ways in which I can fool myself into being unhappy. In general I'm pretty good at not doing that, but knowing about these "cognitive distortions" as well as the exercises Dr. Burns uses to combat them increases my awareness of them.



I feel like this has led to some amount of greater self-understanding, and will probably help me talk to friends about their feelings too.

"There is a kind of genius about depression. Patients can be so incredibly persuasive about their hopelessness that even their doctors and families may start believing them after a while.... No matter what type of treatment you receive, faith and persistence can be the keys to success."
