Review

“A gem of a resource for anyone who struggles with anxiety or worry. Reinecke makes the difficulties of anxiety so much easier to understand with his gentle and encouraging guidance. He pinpoints the typical thoughts and reactions that anxiety triggers, then offers effective questions to ask yourself and healing activities to apply right away. This great little book gets right to the point with inspiring quotes, no-nonsense information, gentle understanding, and superb recommendations.”
—Denise D. Davis, Ph.D., clinical psychologist and assistant director of clinical training at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN

This has such helpful and useable steps to stop all the worry - much of the time about things that will never happen.

Read the book in a couple hours, lots of good information. I won't say it is "life changing" or a "life saver" as have others, that being a bit over the top and may turn off some people who assume it is coming from hypsters or gullible sorts, but I thought there were several good points coming from a mental health professonal who is well-credentialed. Second book I have read in a week that refers to monkey chatter in the head and not allowing a bird that lands on your head to build a nest in your hair (The Power of Self-Coaching). Probably just a coincidence.

I can't tell you how wonderful this book is during a time with such stress and worry. How many nights do I spend hours awake with anxiety? This has such helpful and useable steps to stop all the worry - much of the time about things that will never happen. It is an incredibly difficult time with job losses and then we can have family issues that add to the stress. (Teenage girls??? lol) Thank you, Mark Reinecke!

finally, in laymen terms a tool for handling stress and anxiety!

i could never stay with a textbook style book on this topic, they induced anxiety.
but this "put in my purse", take it with me booklet when life's stresses crop up, is my new go-to-guide. i love the tools at the end of each chapter that re-focuses my negative thoughts into easy to follow problem solving techniques

This little book is filled with helpful hints and advise to help one through these difficult financial times. I bought this book at Barnes and Noble and after reading it I went back and bought five copies to give as gifts. I gave one to my sister for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. This is great little book. You can read it in a few hours and it will change your outook on the economy and give you optimism to handle financial anxiety.

I was having some difficulty in choosing between this book and the original version of the book, which contains quotes and such for hard times. While I love quotes and an avid collector of ones I love and find helpful, the positive reviews this book has received aren't without basis. It's extremely helpful and insightful. I happen to have PTSD and use a multitude of different things to assist me with the anxiety I have as a result. If you work through this book and truly utilize the knowledge it has to provide, you will find a few more tools in your anxiety "toolbox".

Format: Paperback
I have suffered with mild anxiety for years. Recently I began to have panic attacks. I've looked at other books that didn't really seem to give any true steps towards changing the behaviors that lead to anxiety and panic attacks. I stumbled upon this book at a day spa. It is a quick read but really helps you understand what you can do at the time you feel an attack coming on to ward it off. Life is a journey, there are no easy answers but this book points you in the right direction.

Format: Paperback
Mark Reinecke provides a calm and eminently useful set of simple exercises that actually work to reduce generalized anxiety that can paralyze your day. Taking his title from the now-ubiquitous British motivational poster from 1939, Reinecke offers 20 sets of practical solutions to concretely manage your anxiety. He examines the roots of anxiety, both its positive roots in protecting us from danger and our tendency to “awfulize” the possible outcomes and underestimate our ability to cope. He then provides exercises in each chapter that help the reader to name their anxieties, their possible roots, and their possible outcomes. Recognizing our power to change the things we can and accept the things we can’t both reduces our anxiety and, in the end, actually contributes toward our growing wisdom to positively affect our world.

Full disclosure – I often suffer from paralyzing anxiety about an uncertain future and a pessimism about our troubled world, all the way to gastrointestinal issues and insomnia. Reinecke’s exercises have made a difference. Simply reading through the book provides a sense of calm, the voice of a wise elder reassuring you and working you through your difficult (and irrational!) moments. The tone of the book is truly one of its gifts in addition to the useful questions and practices that Reinecke suggests. A caring relative bought this for me as a Christmas present, and their support and Reinecke’s book have made a noticeable difference in my life.

This book has a lot of good information in it. The on drawback for me was in the Kindle version. The format in which the words are presented are horrible. The sentences are in the middle of each page and a lot of words a broken up and makes it hard reading. Also in the middle there are sometimes 15 to 20 words in a single line (one letter by itself) right down the middle of the page with no seperation of the words. This for me seemed crazy. You had to sit and try to disassemble each word. Then 3 letters of a word would be on one page and 4 or the remaining lettyers of the word would be on the next page. If you buy this book it is good reading and very helpful just get the paperback version
