Much better than your typical "self-help"
on August 16, 2013
I've always been a worrier. And many people just tell me to stop, that it's silly. And, while intellectually I know that they're right (and coming from a good place), advice like that doesn't really help. Enter this book.
For people who are more analytical, this book is great. It gives practical "try this" exercises that you can implement day by day to help kick the worry habit. Cohen never makes you feel dumb for worrying. In fact, he explains how it's perfectly rational, given a certain outlook, but once you see that it's hurting you, not helping, you'll want to stop. His structure is logical and it's easy to follow (small exercises first, then you build). I've recommended this book to people like me who worry because they care, but want to stop.
