Anxiety as an Ally is honest, down to earth, and extremely personal. Even though I've followed Dan's antics since 2009, this book revealed a lot of new information that I (and most people) was never aware of. It turns out that Dan has struggled with some very severe anxiety issues, which started in his college years. Dan has become an internet personality. He is very active on sites such as Twitter and is not afraid to get out there and speak his mind about something, no matter how dumb it might be. Anxiety is never something that he has opened up about with his followers. In fact, only select people in his personal life have been aware of his struggles until he wrote this book.
I found the book to be a real page turner. Even though I don't have problems with anxiety myself, I enjoyed Dan's story of how he has battled it and has gotten as far as he is today. (Spoiler: he's doing better than ever). It's very inspiring and I think people can learn and take away some good life lessons from it. Much of what he has to say can be applied to many life situations and not just with anxiety. If you follow Dan, are interested in learning more about him, and want some inspiration, you should definitely give this a read. And if you do have anxiety issues, it's just going to be even more helpful.
The focus of this book of course is Dan's personal journey, which I found relatable (also being the geeky type). It probably helps that I'm very familiar with Dan from Giant Bomb.
I was blown away. I didn't expect these kinds of insights from a guy that enjoys dipping Oreos in nacho cheese. Dan shows an openness & honesty beyond my expectations. Some of his experiences, like prescription medications (including one I was on briefly) were very similar to mine.
Dan, thank you for writing this book and sharing a side of yourself that we don't see on Giant Bomb. Even though my situation is different from yours, I learned a great deal. Thank you.
Reading Dan's struggle, and seeing how much it mirrored my own, was incredibly inspiring.
It makes you feel like you're not so alone in what you are dealing with.
HIGHLY recommended for anyone with anxiety, or who has a loved one with anxiety.

I feel like I know you through your lovely, simple, journal style writing that has really helped me in regards to feeling like I am not entirely alone in these anxiety spirals I find myself in.
Strength through anxiety ; stay strong folks !
I would say the book is pretty simple but Dan gives alot of credibility and good anecdotes to keep you hooked.
Although I haven't read it myself (will do though), I have to say that the design of the front cover is very nice.
I can't say much more because he's not here to help write the review and I didn't read it.
He quotes it and refers to it regularly. He often mentions how helpful he found it.
He also said that it was an engaging read, not at all dry or boring like many self help books can be.
