Do you sometimes feel . . .

Down, depressed, or unhappy? Anxious, panicky, or insecure?

Guilty, inadequate, or worthless? Lonely, unwanted, or alone?

For decades, we've been told that "negative" feelings like depression and anxiety are the result of what's wrong with us, which creates feelings of shame and makes it sound like we're broken and need to be "fixed." But what if we have it all backwards? What if our negative moods do not result from what's wrong with us but, rather, what's right with us?

This is the revolutionary mind shift you will find in Feeling Great. Written by Dr. David Burns, a pioneer of cognitive therapy and author of the national bestseller Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy, this book describes a groundbreaking high-speed treatment for depression and anxiety based on one simple notion: Our struggles actually reflect what is most beautiful about us. And when we can see our negative thoughts and feelings from this radically different perspective, recovery becomes possible-sometimes even in the blink of an eye!

Based on Dr. Burns's 40+ years of research and more than 40,000 hours treating individuals with severe mood issues, Feeling Great is filled with inspiring real-life case studies and more than 50 actionable tools to crush the negative thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem. You can change the way you feel. In fact, you owe it to yourself to feel GREAT!
