Publisher's Summary

Other self-help books claim to reveal the path to happiness, but 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.

Insightful, But Not Meant For Audio

What did you like best about F*ck Feelings? What did you like least?

F*ck Feelings is great at getting straight to the point: how to wear your heart on your sleeve, what you can realistically aim for and actually achieve. The problem is that it reads more as a handbook than a novel. Not every chapter will be applicable to you or your loved ones, and because of this, it's not necessary to read/listen to it cover-to-cover.

What about Patrick Lawlor’s performance did you like?

Lawlor's gives a high-energy and entertaining read and makes the best out of an oddly formatted text.

A string of blog posts don't make for a good book

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would write it as a book. It typifies the problems with established bloggers writing books. They tend to be very weak at overall structure and flow, having an attention span that's limited to 2000 words. When I'm listening to an audiobook, I don't want to hear mostly unrelated, though often overlapping chapters with the same detailed sections and structures repeated dozens of times over. I have no high-level overview of the material and at any given point I have no idea where the book is going.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Get better recording equipment and an voice actor that doesn't sound like he's reading a script

Brilliant and funny

Great book with useful advice on dealing with all kinds of situations and people, delivered with a great sense of humour which really is very heart warming, validating and perspective giving.
