Publisher's Summary

If you want to feel happier, more optimistic, more joyful, and resilient, Dr. Amen's groundbreaking new book is for you.

We've all felt anxious, sad, traumatized, grief-stricken, stressed, angry, or hopeless at some point in life. It's perfectly normal to go through emotional crises or have periods when you feel panicked or out of sorts. It is how you respond to these challenges that will make all the difference in how you feel - not just immediately but also in the long run. Unfortunately, many people turn to self-medicating behaviors, such as overeating, drugs, alcohol, risky sexual behavior, anger, or wasting time on mindless TV, video games, Internet surfing, or shopping. And even though these behaviors may give temporary relief from feeling bad, they usually only prolong and exacerbate the problems - or cause other, more serious ones. 

Is it possible to feel better - and make it last? Renowned physician, psychiatrist, brain-imaging researcher, and founder of Amen Clinics Dr. Daniel Amen understands how critical it is for you to know what will help you feel better fast, now and later. In Feel Better Fast and Make It Last, you'll discover new, powerful brain-based strategies to quickly gain control over anxiety, worry, sadness, stress, and anger, strengthening your resilience and giving you joy and purpose for a lifetime.

Found my healing path with this book

I was sinking in depression and anxiety. Was seeing a therapist but still couldn’t see the light. After hearing about Dr Amen on Jay Shety’s podcast, I bought the book and audiobook and read it all in one go. So, even without feeling the strength or the energy to take action, I started following Dr A’s practical advice. I did it all! From meditation to diet; from supplements to exercise. Vision board, non negotiable daily tasks, sleep, The Work, gratitude journal... the list goes on.
And finally, little by little I started healing. I still have my triggers and dark days but now I know I have the right tools to succeed. Thank you

Eye opening

This was a very detailed look at things that are bad and good for your brain. It has opened my eyes up to healthy lifestyle changes. In my opinion small gradual changes and better diet and books like this from Dr Amen can make lasting changes in overall health and happiness in Life.

NOT for driving-has guided meditation.

I saw this guy do a TedTalk. it was amazing. I loved the science and Dr. Amen's personality. I'm sure this is a great book, but not for me or as an audible. I didn't give it much of a chance, returning it before chapter 1 ended. It may be for you. Dr. Amen is really lively and likeable on video, but I found him dry and flat on the audible book.

Amen is far and away the best psychiatrist!

I own everyone of his books and think this one covers so many important topics. I would be a bargain if it cost $100.00,

Easy to listen to

Excellent book. More information than I required however very easy to recognise what one could do to improve and protect ones brain . The real life situations opened one's eyes to how the brain can be so easily damaged and healed. This made one reflect on situations past and present many light bulb moments. Tried some of the techniques which really worked immediately. All health professionals should access this book as well as non health professionals
