Feeling Good Book Nuggets

This post is my index of book nuggets from Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy Revised and Updated, by David D. Burns, M.D. In this book, the author teaches you how to rid yourself of anxiety, guilt, pessimism, procrastination, low self-esteem, and other “black holes” of depression without drugs. The author outlines specific skills and techniques to lift your spirits and help you develop a positive outlook on life.   You can use these skills for the worst tragedies in your life or just making the most of everyday.

    Hi J.D.

    I like how you organized your nuggets. It makes it easy for your readers to find the links they’re looking for.

    Great idea!

    Hey Barbara — great to hear! I was just revisiting this today. I have some more lists to add.

    I don’t know how well this will scale over time, but so far this seems like the best approach to pull collections together and make them available. The only other approach I can think of is to use some social software tools to create lists and collections, but I haven’t experimented much yet.

    @Paula — You can check out Dr. David D. Burns’ audios, but I don’t think this particular book has an audio version that I could find.

    Tony Robbins might be your best bet if you want an audio format.
