Format: Paperback
Based on my personal experiences this unique book's explanation of the cause and cure for anxiety, OCD, and depression is innovative and correct. I am successfully recovering from a forty year long midlevel depression and anxiety disorder and "Evolving Self-confidence" is guiding my way. This book helped me in a manner more effective, more understandable, more relatable, more articulate, and more precise than any of my experiences with other self-help books, psychiatrists, psychologists, university professors, advising loved ones and friends, presentations and workshops, medications and nutritional supplements, or any other source of treatment.

Some people believe that depending on the personality and condition of the reader, one self-help book may be best for some readers while a different book may be better for other readers. If this is the case then I would say "Evolving Self-confidence" is the best book for the largest possible number of people. If, however, this is not the case and one form of treatment can help the majority of people then I would say this book is the best PERIOD. If those suffering from depression, anxiety, and other emotional issues take their condition seriously and they embrace the theories and treatment outlined in "Evolving Self-confidence", this book will greatly improve their lives and possibly change society for the better.

This book really works~ So many books give you exercises to do that treat the symptoms, but don't go to the root of the problem and eradicate it. This book gives you insight to why you do the obsessive compulsions, or have general anxiety, or panic attacks and depression. Then the author tells you what steps to take in order to change your thinking about yourself to the truth, and then gives you the self-talk to change your opinion about yourself. To those who repeatedly hurt you with constant criticism and ridicule when you were a child, you are told that it was their problem, not yours. You are not bad, you are, you have always been a good person. Buy this book. Another good one is Brain Lock, by Jeffrey Schwartz, It goes into a lot of scientific studies, and it gives some good practical steps for change too. Happy reading...

I have found Terry Dixon's book `Evolving Self Confidence' a real delight and beautifully pitched. I have suffered anxiety, depression and confidence issues for most of my life and have sought many different resolutions to no avail. I felt myself to be once again going down in my mental state and just through a search engine found this book on Amazon. I ordered it and with shredded nerves started to read it when it arrived. It wasn't brash or bold. It was like being held and being loved. I had an understanding of psychological issues and the physiology and functions of the brain from university. The things I read made sense and were practical but this time they were presented in such a way that it wasn't information anymore. It had become the soothing words of someone that cared; the words were instilled in my mind and my mind believed. This book can make you believe in yourself again. I have always been sceptical and things have very rarely worked for me. I had hypnotherapy that required me to tell myself parrot fashion that I was strong and would be fine to no avail. This book makes YOU believe in you, not another. I guess that why it works and why it feels real, because it is real and the answer is you. You just need to work at it with its help - you'll find no better help; Thank you Terry.

This is the best book in the whole world for anybody with anxiety,depression, phobias. You only need one book and it's this one.
I have suffered from anxiety for 15 years. I have been halfway round the world for someone to help me, but to no avail. Then I come across this book. I feel like I have been blessed to find it. I read the book once and felt so happy to be alive, I finally know whats wrong with me and not only that I know to to correct it, on my own, without therapy, without drugs. To feel well again, thats the best thing in the world. I would recommend this book to anyone. Dont waste your money on anything else, u only need one book and its this one. This book tells u whats wrong with u and also how to correct it. Very simple to read, once u start reading u cant put the book down. Everything makes sense at long last. Im so happy happy happy.

I am 38 years old and have been actively battling an anxiety disorder for over 20 years, including 8 years of seeing a therapist. During this time I have healed/progressed just slightly and concluded that I was just a special person that was "un-fixable". Then I read this book and my life and outlook have changed tremendously. The author explains the way people learn these self destructive behaviors and the solution to them in a totally unique way. I have read many self help books and none of them come even close to this book. It's very practical, and not overly wordy. This book will change your life!

For the most part I considered this book to be a waste of my time and money.
The author would have you believe that all depression and anxiety related problems are caused by someone (most often your parents) who put you down and made you feel bad and worthless. That simply is not true. I know of many individuals who were raised in loving secure homes, were popular in school, had many friends and yet developed depression and or anxiety.
The steps the author outlines to overcome anxiety and depression consist of simple advice that could be given to anyone who wants to be happy and healthy in this life; exercise, get enough sleep, eat right, forgive others, love and help others, and accept and dismiss negative thoughts and symptoms. While this isn't bad advice, I'm sorry to say the causes and the cure for anxiety and depression are not that simple.
The author states his qualifications vaguely as having thirty years of experience in the research and study of anxiety related problems. I would have liked for him to share his qualifications more specifically.
