Couldn't get used to the narration....

The narration is slightly better than those text-to-voice softwares. I didn't expect a performance in a non-fiction book, but it's so robotic, it's annoying....

Helpful book that gives you back the power

I found this book to be a very helpful take on living with anxiety — one that’s based in the principles of acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and mindfulness. From the get-go, the author puts the power back in your hands, stating that emotions, behaviors, and thoughts all work together to influence how much (or how little) anxiety we experience.

The author is careful not to suggest that medication cannot help, yet spends most of her time focusing on what the reader can do him or herself, with or without the assistance of medication. I found that to be refreshing and encouraging.

In the end, all the tactics the author provides give the reader hope; hope that he or she can improve his or her condition on his/her own, or, at the very least, that things will get better in one way or another.

It’s time to stop avoiding what we fear and start listening to our anxiety to inspire action in our lives. This book cleverly shows us how.

Absolutely, undoubtably, the best anxiety book

This is the best anxiety book I’ve ever listen to or read. And believe me I have read and listen to a lot of books over the last 20 years. The only negative I can say is that the narrator is a bit robotic. But believe me if you can get past that you got a winner

Not really for me.

This book wasn’t bad there was actually a few things I liked in it, but the author takes the stance that you suffer from extreme anxiety which I don’t, and if I did I seriously doubt this book would help.

should help with anxiety

It is worth a listen and I believe it is well intended. A good perspective and refresher to be mindful and exercise. Also good resource List. I haven't checked them yet but I hope they are current. One area that wasn't discussed was the importance of play. I was exhausted listening to how much I would have to practice to overcome anxiety and find peace. I couldn't wait to get done with the book and color. One point that I took away is to give up eliminating anxiety. For me that could turn out to be a big step in living life more fully.

Good Ideas and strategies but....

it definitely gives you things to work on however what if your anxiety comes from real trauma and absolutely overwhelming issues? This it does not address, if you are facing life and death issues on a daily basis she assumes you are not. Maybe most people aren't. if you cannot pinpoint where your anxiety is coming from this is an excellent way to work through it and find out where it comes from and what to do about it. everyone does have some issues like that so this book can be helpful.

Just ok

It is a good book, however I was waiting for a different content, more focus on mindfulness than on disorder treatments. Anyhow, it is a well written and practical book.

useful material

guidance for people with anxiety -
can lead to too much attention to oneself -
does not talk about the affects on the person's loved ones/family members/people who have to live with them
