From the author who has sold more than 5 million copies of Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy comes a new and revolutionary high-speed treatment for depression and anxiety.

Based on 40 years of research and more than 40,000 hours treating individuals with severe mood problems. The goal is not just a rapid and complete elimination of negative feelings, but the development of joy and enlightenment.

In Feeling Great, Dr. David Burns reveals that our negative moods do not result from what’s wrong with us, but rather -- what’s right with us. And when you listen and suddenly “hear” what your negative thoughts and feelings are trying to tell you, suddenly you won’t need them anymore, and recovery will be just a stone’s throw away.

Dr. Burns will provide you with inspiring and mind-blowing case studies along with more than 50 amazing tools to crush the negative thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem.

Are you tired of feeling . . .

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

You can change the way you feel!

You owe it to yourself to FEEL GREAT!
