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.
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.
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.
