As a psychology student, I was very impressed by Functional Emotional Fitness™ (The Mechanism of Emotion and The Gut-Brain Influence) by Kelly Burris. The fact that the book had such a large grounding in the same psychology I was learning in college, yet lacked the dry textbook style of writing, made it an interesting read. I feel that I learned more about the psychology of health from this book than I did from my health psychology textbook because this material made sense, was backed up by evidence, and was easy to understand. I personally found many of the techniques to be easy enough to apply to my own life, so I plan to do this as soon as I finish my current semester. I liked how Kelly Burris used a writing style that was based on clear facts and evidence, yet also made the material seem like something that could be easily applicable in everyone's life!
