REVIEWS:
"Finally, a common sense approach to an all too common malady. Ms. Bernstein has assembled the tools to overcome our personal demons in words that are clear and concise. When I find a good book, I usually “can’t put it down” but Get The Funk Out demands time to absorb the inspirational stories and ponder the question of how faith can be so strong."

Gary Pihl, former guitarist for Sammy Hagar and current member of the
band Boston


"I love this book! A radically transparent look that teaches us to face life's hard knocks--instead of running away--and heal from the gifts that emerge from them. This is a bedside keeper to remind you that grass grows through concrete."

Bryan E. Robinson, Ph.D., Author and Psychotherapist 


"The power of self-esteem  is on full display in Get the Funk Out.  Janeane Bernstein pulls together an unlikely cast to write a prescription for dealing with life’s large and small challenges.   Finding joy on the journey is possible, no matter how rocky the road."

Richard M. Cohen
New York Times Best Selling Author of Blindsided and Strong at the Broken Places
