Book Promo: Feeling Great

The Revolutionary New Treatment for
Depression and Anxiety

Numerous recent surveys indicate that depression and anxiety have doubled or tripled since the corona pandemic. In fact, according to the CDC, more than 40 percent of the population are experiencing “adverse mental conditions . . . associated with . . . Covid-19.” Top that with the realities of the pandemic—including fear of death, separation from loved ones, loss of employment, and intense political battles that trigger even more emotional vulnerability and despair. Now, world-renowned psychiatrist, Dr. David D. Burns, brings us a radical new approach to healing in his No. 1 Amazon bestselling book, Feeling Great: The Revolutionary New Treatment for Depression and Anxiety (PESI, Inc., ISBN: 9781683732884; $26.99, Hardcover). Selling more than 29,000 copies in the first two weeks since its release, Feeling Great reveals innovative techniques that make rapid change possible, even without drugs or therapy.

Feeling Great emerged from 40 years of research and more than 40,000 hours treating individuals with severe depression and anxiety. This research revealed that negative feelings do not result in what’s WRONG WITH YOU—like a chemical imbalance in your brain or a “mental disorder”—but from what‘s RIGHT WITH YOU. And the moment you realize this, recovery will be just a stone’s throw away.

Dr. Burns’ Feeling Good and Feeling Good Handbook have sold more than 5 million copies and have made cognitive therapy the most popular and most extensively researched form of therapy in the world. More than 50 percent of depressed people who read Feeling Good recover of improve dramatically in four weeks with no other treatment. The techniques in Feeling Great are even more powerful.

In Feeling Great you will:

1. Learn how to change the way you think and feel;
2. Pinpoint and eliminate the powerful forces that keep you stuck;
3. Discover why depression and anxiety are the world’s oldest cons;
4. Crush the 10 types of distorted thoughts that rob you of happiness and self-esteem.

Editorial Reviews:

Nothing short of amazing! Dr. David Burns is an absolute genius, and with his work and this book, he has advanced psychotherapy by lightyears. He is arguably one of the best therapists in the world, and using this book is as close to having personal therapy with Dr. Burns as one can possibly get; it’s like having him right there in the room with you. This book actually achieves the ambitious goal of making extremely powerful and effective therapy available, accessible and usable to the general public more than any resource I’ve seen. Feeling Great provides the reader with a powerful and effective framework for rapidly, effectively and dramatically alleviating depression and anxiety. It is filled with practical tools and techniques and will help anyone suffering from depression or anxiety, whether used by an individual seeking relief, or in conjunction with a therapist. Given the amazing results I’ve personally had using Dr. Burns TEAM framework, both in terms of my own anxiety and depression, as well as with my patients, I will be recommending this book to anyone who suffers from these conditions. Rapid, effective, drug-free treatment has never been so accessible as it is now in Feeling Great. This was the first time I’ve ever cried tears of joy while reading a book!
