Dr. Michael Bennett & Sarah Bennett – Authors of F*ck Love: One Shrink’s Sensible Advice for Finding a Lasting Relationship and the Bloggers at FxckFeelings.com
This is Dr. and Sarah Bennett’s second time on the show. Dr. Michael Bennett, educated at both Harvard College and Harvard Medical School, is a board-certified psychiatrist. His major interest is his private practice which he’s been running for almost thirty years. 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. When not living by her philosophy of “will write for food,” Sarah walks her dog and avoids eye contact with other humans. Together, they wrote the New York Times bestselling F*ck Feelings, the only self-help book you’ll ever need. They have followed it up with F@ck Love, their new book perfectly timed for Valentine’s.
