Dr. Michael I. Bennett, educated at both Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, is a board-certified psychiatrist, Canadian, and Red Sox fan. While he's worked in every aspect of his field, from hospital administration to managed care, his major interest is his private practice that he's been running for almost thirty years. The author of F*ck Feelings, with his daughter Sarah Bennett, he lives with his wife in Boston and New Hampshire.
Sarah Bennett has written for magazines, the Internet, television, and books. She also spent two years writing for a monthly sketch comedy show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in New York City. When not living by her philosophy of "will write for food," Sarah walks her dog, watches Red Sox games, and avoids eye contact with other humans. Somehow, she lives in New Hampshire and works in New York. F*ck Feelings, written with her father Dr. Michael I. Bennett, is her first book.
"I don't trust anything called a "self-help" book which is why I love F*ck Feelings. There's no smiling guru on the cover. We would all be smiling, motivated, people all day long if our f*cking feelings didn't keep f*cking us up - but this book helps. It gives clear examples of our own circular thinking and how to accept our feelings but not always cater to them, and it's FUNNY. Because life - even when it sucks - is FUNNY."--Jen Kirkman, stand-up comedian and New York Times bestselling author of I Can Barely Take Care of Myself
