2.0 out of 5 stars Hard Going, 17 Jun 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Feeling Good Handbook (Paperback)
Feeling Good Handbook (Plume) This is not a book, but a course. You have to keep stopping reading and doing written exercises. The forms for the exercises are in the book but you need to photocopy them as many have to be repeated several times.
The author keeps saying "tell me" when he means "write down", thus pretending in a patronising way, that he will react to what you do.
Anecdotes tend to refer to one social class (young executive) and I found the style and manner of the author irritating.
In short, I couldn't get on with it.
Others may find him very helpful.

it's pretty obvious that it's a course - the point of the bopok is that exercises can help.

pity you were distracted by your concerns about style - you don't seem to have read the book much or carreid out what it asks you to do, so your two star review is kind of misleading - it's about the style and not the effectiveness of the book

I found the review helpful. It probably won't stop me from buying the book, but I appreciated hearing what the style of the book is like.
