New York Times Bestseller

The only self-help book you'll ever need, from a psychiatrist and his comedy writer daughter , who will help you put aside your unrealistic wishes, stop trying to change things you can't change, and do the best with what you can control--the first steps to managing all of life's impossible problems.

Here is the cut-to-the-chase therapy session you've been looking for!

Need to stop screwing up? Want to become a more positive person?
Do you work with an ass? Think you can rescue an addicted person?
Looking for closure after abuse? Have you realized that your parent is an asshole?
Feel compelled to clear your name? Hope to salvage a lost love?
Want to get a lover to commit? Plagued by a bully?
Afraid of ruining your kid? Ready to vent your anger?

In this brilliantly sensible and funny book, a Harvard-educated shrink and his comedy-writing daughter reveal that the real f-words in life are "feelings" and "fairness." While most self-help books are about your feelings and fulfilling your wildest dreams, F*ck Feelings will show you how to find a new kind of freedom by getting your head out of your ass and yourself onto the right path toward realistic goals and feasible results. F*ck Feelings is the last self-help book you will ever need!

The content is good, however the format/layout/writing is very disappointing. It at times feels more like an outline that is poorly divided and repetitive. After getting the central point by the first 1/3, I felt I could have written the rest except maybe the jokes. That said: the central message is actually very good and applicable for self help, psychotherapy and life in general. The book however could have been much better written/produced.

It's refreshing. Yeah, gratuitous profanity, but, as reported in the New York Times, people are swearing more since our rabidly partisan presidential election anyway-- including me. What I like are the practical battle plans for dealing with those f*cking feelings. Carrying out a plan could be done in collaboration with a therapist.

This book is pretty much about accepting who you are weaknesses and strength. Agreeing that life does stink at times and you can not change or help others. You can only take control over how you choose to deal with certain problems. Good and funny read.

I mean, really, the title says it all. I listened to the audio version of Michael Bennett, M.D. & Sarah Bennett's book F*ck Feelings and while it was funny, down to earth and entertaining, I don't think anyone should take this too seriously as a self help book.
I am not sure I have a ton to say about this book. It kept me entertained, had lots of potty-mouthed humor, and was a no-nonsense guide to solving "problems" in your life. I will warn readers- if you are thinking of reading this as a serious self-help book, just don't. Sure it's written my a doctor, but adding in his daughter who is a comedic writer just makes this a long SNL sketch.
The entire book can pretty much be summed up like this: Life sucks. Not everything can be fair and equal. Some things you just can't change. You can't control everything. Learn to live with problems and issues that can't be changed. Of course, the humor of how all this is said is hilarious when you add constant cuss words.
This book was amusing but repetitive. After the first couple chapters you can pretty much get the gist of what they are trying to tell the reader. It could have been a lot shorter, and if not for the comedy aspect I would have stopped reading a quarter of the way through.
A 3 star read for me. Mainly because of the title and all the crude humor and profanity.
