Praise

Advance Praise for Good Reasons for Bad Feelings

“Very engagingly written for the general reader, Nesse’s book is hugely important for the future of mental health care, and Nesse is the pre-eminent person to write it. It provides a personalized and lively but well documented treatise on how we humans function as we do and on needed changes in the way psychiatry thinks about troublesome mental experiences and behavior. It draws on an impressive range of knowledge, from not only psychiatry, including extensive case descriptions, but also psychology, biology, philosophy, and humanistic literature. Many readers will find it hard to put the book down.”
–Eric Klinger, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, University of Minnesota
 
“Two sets of ideas inform this fine book: one, the cold-hearted logic of natural selection; the other, the practical wisdom of a compassionate psychiatrist. The tension is palpable. The result is riveting.”
–Nicholas Humphrey, Emeritus Professor of Psychology, London School of Economics, author of Soul Dust
