Other self-help books claim to reveal the path to happiness, but F*ck Feelings warns that convincing yourself that there is such a path will actually lead you to feel like a true failure. What the Bennetts can promise you is that you can manage any situation life throws at you if you can keep your sense of humor, bend your wishes to fit reality, restrain your feelings, manage bad behavior, and do what you think is right.

I hate this book. Although, it does have some redeeming messages that resonated with me, I couldn't get past the over-the-top irreverence (which was originally what drew me to this book) just for the sake of being irreverent. If there is any useful "how to" suggestions, I must have missed it in the sea of sarcasm (which is a language I speak fluently). Friends and I started a book club with this book and at the first meeting decided we all hated it and looked for another. the book would have been more useful if written as 12 bullet points (as is probably true about this review). Total waste of time and money.
