Format: Paperback
The grammar, spelling and cover blurbs were great; however the main content of the book was nothing new. In fact, a ten to twenty minute search on the internet would get you just about all the information found in this book.

I have read many other titles within the `Overcoming' range and found that all that I have read to be interesting, informative and inspirational. This book in my opinion was different. It lacked much of what the others provide, which is a shame as I am sure a lot of people could benefit if this book was rewritten and republished.

I really wanted to have got something out of this book, but I simply did not. And in fairness I can only give this book 2 stars.

Warmly,

Having suffered from serious anxiety and having had professional advice before, it was my counsellor who suggested this book. The idea is to read and apply the book. This way you learn your own problems and that starts the ball rolling to how to handle them and re educate yourself. I have read many books but I particularly like the way this is structured. It's not as hard as it sounds once you get the hang of catching thoughts and noting them down, then you can look at what kind of thoughts they are how to deal with them. Well worth reading!

This book was fantastic offering a guide chapter by chapter on how to overcome the problem of anxiety. I felt at the end like a weight had been lifted off my back. I know recognize triggers, have strategies that work on overcoming them. I am managing sleep problems better because of it and my life is much smoother because of this book. Get it, you wont regret it and the Worry Cure is another extremely helpful book.

This is a great book. I will say it tries to cover all kinds of anxiety so may be unfocused for someone looking for help with a specific anxiety.
