“Do you go to extremes? The cure is moderation. Sometimes extremes can be good. In can be healthy to be gung-ho bout a relationship, an activity, or a cause. But many extreme views and actions pack a debilitating wallop. Severe sadness, anxiety, depression, self-pity, and rage can seriously affect your coping abilities. In his book How to Make Yourself Happy and Remarkably Less Disturbable Ellis presents a pragmatic, realistic approach to choosing to reduce your present disturbed thoughts, feelings, and actions, and learning to ward off future emotional difficulties. Written in a lively, frank style that includes real-life case examples...emphasizes moderation in coping more effectively with obstacles to happiness.&rdquot;
