The U-Turn: A Guide to Happiness, by practising psychiatrist Dr. Conor Farren, is a book for those of us who live with everyday negative emotions—anger, depression, fear, anxiety and jealousy—which keep us from enjoying life. The 'U-Turn' is the name of the journey the book takes us on—from emotional upset to self-understanding and then, putting into action the U-Turn principles of Think, Feel, Act, to contentment. The U-Turn helps us to get a good grasp of our emotions, of our personal make-up and of our relationships. The next step is to take action to bring about change in our lives. At the end of each chapter are a series of exercises based on the U-Turn principles of Think, Feel and Act, which help us to take action and implement our new understanding in our life. The U-Turn is not just a book; it is a map that guides us on our journey from hurt to happiness. The author has combined the techniques of modern psychiatry and his own hard-won life lessons to create an inspiring, revelatory and interactive read.
