Jantz opens the text with an Introduction filled to overflowing with every kind of fear a person might suffer. Aptly titled "One More Thing to Worry About," this intro to the topic at hand brings it home by addressing how commonplace most of our fears truly are. Jantz's descriptions will resonate with Christ followers in equal measure to those with no particular faith-based worldview (translated: everyone struggles against anxiety/worry/fear).
A smattering of Jantz's queries includes these questions for readers trying to discern whether or not they might find value in his newest resource. Jantz asks: "Do you ever find yourself fearful without really knowing why? Do you worry about a thousand little things during the day? Do you sometimes feel like you're smothering, like you can't get enough air? Do you wake up in the morning tired and irritable? Do you have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep? Do you avoid certain people, places, and situations because of how fearful they make you feel? If you've answered 'yes' to any or all of these questions, then this book is for you."
Jantz helps readers grasp just how cumbersome our electronic age has made our lives by giving us too much information too quickly, too often, and in too big amounts. For many people, living in a constant stream of anxiousness has become the only way they know how to live. The authors want to share a different way, a better way.Read more ›

I'm not saying this was a bad book. It gives insights and advice.
But, I'd say, this is one of those stereotypical self help books, with the same, repeated mantras. Read more
