Review: Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy

User Review  - Patrick Fleet - Goodreads

This was a good read. I picked this book up, because although I am not depressed, I have some shy streaks that make me not as happy as I could be, and I tend to fall into routines frequently. I liked the advice in this book. Read full review
