Review

"Buy this gem of a book when you are ready to face your anxiety and take the necessary steps to overcome it. Drs. Clark and Beck are leaders in cognitive therapy, which has the highest anxiety treatment success rates in the world. Everyone who has ever felt anxious will recognize themselves in these pages and gain new understanding of what drives their anxiety. Even better, each chapter is packed with worksheets that can help lower anxiety within days and weeks. This is your chance to follow expert guidance with confidence as you take steps toward a calmer, happier future."--Christine A. Padesky, PhD, coauthor of Mind Over Mood

"From world-renowned cognitive therapists, this hands-on, practical, step-by-step workbook can help you free yourself from debilitating anxiety and worry. Use this book as a daily guide to understanding and changing your thinking. Drs. Clark and Beck offer a clear and empowering roadmap for building a better life."--Robert L. Leahy, PhD, author of The Worry Cure

"A great gift to anyone suffering from anxiety. This book is accessible, is written with warmth and wisdom, and includes the most up-to-date cognitive behavioral strategies. Enormously valuable, it is sure to inspire courage and hope."--Paul Gilbert, PhD, author of The Compassionate Mind

"A valuable and accessible resource for the millions of people around the world who suffer from anxiety, especially those who have panic attacks, fear social situations, or are tormented by constant worry."--Richard G. Heimberg, PhD, Director, Adult Anxiety Clinic, Temple University


“An excellent resource of well-tested exercises, explanations and encouragement.”
(The Psychologist 2013-07-12)

“The book is nicely structured. It guides readers to understanding their anxiety and develop strategies to overcoming their problems, using excellent case examples, trouble shooting tips, worksheets and homework exercises throughout….Gives a clear, accessible description of cognitive therapy (CT) for anxiety disorders, how it works, and what to expect from therapy sessions and a therapist. This is particularly helpful for readers using this book in conjunction to therapy….The book nicely balances normalizing people’s experiences and inspiring hope and motivation, with gentle reminders that overcoming anxiety can take time and requires practice in implementing the strategies taught throughout the book….This book is an excellent, accessible self-help manual for individuals suffering from anxiety. It would also be a valuable tool for therapists and an accompaniment to patients already having cognitive therapy.”
(Journal of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapy 2014-01-06)

I am a cognitive behavior therapist specializing in anxiety disorders. I often recommend this book to my clients who have generalized anxiety, excessive worry, panic attacks or social anxiety. I consider this to be an advanced workbook as it is more helpful to people who have already read a more basic workbook on anxiety or clients who already have a basic understanding of CBT. It has a strong emphasis on cognitive skills to help you change your thinking about anxiety by learning to assess danger more realistically as well as increase your ability to cope with the situations that make you anxious. In Chapter 7, it also includes some behavioral work incorporating exposure therapy, which is critical for anyone trying to get control of anxiety. Research has indicated that exposure may be the most critical element in reducing anxiety. I have found that a combination of exposure plus cognitive restructuring is most beneficial. Otherwise, people may be too afraid or unmotivated to face their fears in real life. The cognitive work helps people get ready to do things that are uncomfortable. Paradoxically, the way to reduce anxiety is to approach it and even welcome anxiety into your life. The less you fear being anxious, the less anxious you will feel. I really like Chapter 11 on Overcoming Worry. It is one of the best chapters I have read on strategies to deal with worry. Overall, I think this is a superb workbook and, if you can do all the exercises in this workbook, you will gain new skills to manage anxiety and worry.

I have suffered from anxiety and stress all of my life. Mountains out of molehills should be on my tombstone. This is a well written book with many suggestions that put things in context that allow you to change. I know the things that I do wrong but it's nice to know you are not alone. The writer understands the many little things that you can do to tweak your life and stand off and look at yourself and trim your sails. It's just like having a little therapy right beside your recliner. I read it and reread it. I have undergone therapy sessions and I would have to say I get as much out of some of this advice as I do in the therapist office. I would recommend it to anyone suffering from anxiety and stress and letting it affect their daily living.

This is an important book, for obvious reasons. It's the first self-help book on anxiety by Aaron T. Beck, the founder of cognitive therapy. It's published hot on the heels of Beck's 2010 revised treatment manual for cognitive therapy of anxiety disorders, also co-authored with David Clark. Beck's original treatment manual for anxiety was published in 1985 and revised in 2005 but this is a major revision of his approach. He has now provided an extremely comprehensive account of the scientific evidence for cognitive therapy and a more carefully defined and up-to-date set of guidelines for clinicians. This self-help workbook is basically the companion text for that clinical manual, presenting the same approach in a version designed for the general public to use by themselves or as homework when seeing a cognitive therapist using the same approach.

It's not as much of of a light-read as some popular self-help books. It's a workbook in the true sense, with a thorough and systematic chapter-by-chapter approach, including many forms to complete and regular exercises to engage in, perhaps requiring half an hour of work per day for several months. This, in other words, is a serious evidence-based guide to addressing anxiety directly and it will require commitment from the reader.

The book begins with a generic approach to anxiety, which can be used for subclinical problems and many mild-moderate issues. The later chapters focus on three special categories of anxiety: panic attacks, social anxiety and chronic worry. These problems are experienced by many people but the chapters will, of course, be particularly relevant to people who suffer from panic disorder, social phobia, or generalised anxiety disorder (sometimes called the "worry" disorder).

The ultimate anxiety book written by two of the pioneers in saving countless people from disabling anxiety. This book takes you trough the understanding of your own mind and why we get anxious and why it gets out of control. Helps you master and gain complete awareness of your own anxiety process and all the tools needed to reverse and eradicate this terrible disorder. In my case it helped me defeat obsessive thoughts and panic of flying.

I've been working through this book for a month and I still haven't completed it. It will take me at least another month to get through it. There is a lot of content and a lot of work required but it's all been helpful so far. I highly recommend it to anyone with anxiety issues.

I used this as part of my anxiety therapy with my counselor. I don't normally like workbooks at all, but this was different and It gives those with anxiety a lot of tools for self-help. It's very relatable to various types of anxiety and I would recommend trying it.
