Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
We all must occasionally deal with major upheavals or emotional distress at some points in our lives. These events can cause a host of unexpected feelings and behaviors from depression and panic attacks to major disruptions in sleep or eating. What is the best way to understand these feelings? What is the best way to fix them? Jeff Wood, in his straightforward book Getting Help, provides an excellent guide to both the understanding of symptoms as well as options for treatment. This is the kind of book that should be in the waiting room of every physician, lawyer, or even car mechanic. It is an unbiased, scientifically respectable, and readable manual on understanding and treating mental health issues.
-James W. Pennebaker, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin
