Format: Paperback
Author Gregory L. Jantz, PhD, is a speaker and the author of more than 25 books, and his co-author, Ann McMurray, has written with him several times. Combining their expertise, they offer more than the run-of-the-mill, how-to advice on overcoming anxieties, worries and fears.

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.

A breath of fresh air! This is very helpful for those who have struggled with habitual or chronic worry, anxiety, and stress, and are willing to positively and objectively look beyond just circumstances to underlying attitudes and beliefs that we accumulate while we live through life's challenges. It provides insight and positive steps to take which can ultimately provide renewed hope and strength.

Format: Paperback
This book is very well written. It cuts to the heart of these struggles and explains them clearly and carefully. It gives great "real life" examples with which you can identify. It explains thoroughly the cause and effect of all types of anxiety, fears and worry and the reader can easily assess their own situation. It is matter-of-fact, no nonsense approach with very doable and practical applications. It do not make the reader feel belittled but empowered to face their struggle head on. It has helped me GREATLY.
