It's a solid, step-by-step program of cognitive techniques which, when practiced and mastered SLOWLY over time, can change your life.
I know from personal experience. After three years of therapy for Generalized Anxiety Disorder, I decided I was getting worse, not better. I had the good fortune
to find this book at the library, and was excited to see that it took the responsibility for "changing me" out of the hands of a therapist and put the responsibility
squarely where it belonged: on me.
Starting in 1992 I spent over a year mastering the skills, and still use the book once a month for reference and a bit of a "refresher course."
What can I say? My symptoms have vanished! No more undiagnosable stomache and joint aches, no more pills, no more panic attacks. Even my ALLERGIES have disappeared!
It's amazing how much of our poor health is stress-related, and even more amazing how a book like this can help one to unlearn a lifetime of
bad thought habits (like perfectionism.)
If you're motivated to change your life, the program works. That's the best review I can give it!
For a while I couldn't figure out what was happening to me. After finally figuring out that I was having panic attacks I bought this book. Following the chapters in the book, it took about four weeks to have complete control over my anxiety. The methods for eliminating the episodes were fantastic and have really saved me in many areas of my life.
I would highly recommend this book. It addresses anxiety as well as OCD and various phobias. It's been several years since I got this book and went through it and I have not had a single panic attack since. While I still do experience everyday stress, and sometimes a lot of it - this book has made me better at recognizing and handling very stressful situations far better than I ever could prior to reading it. I wish I had read this book prior to ever having the panic attacks. It will help you change your perspective and turn stressful events into exciting and enjoyable ones.
I can't say enough good about this book - If you have panic attacks or experience anxiety or even just want to improve your ability to handle pressure, you should _definitely_ buy and read this book!!!
I especially recommend the breathing and relaxation exercises for quick anxiety first aid.
