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.

I have never written a book review in my life. This book is so helpful to the battle of anxiety disorders that I feel compelled to share my appreciation with others. If you are not particularly religious you will still this find this book on point for understanding and combatting your issues with anxiety. If you are Christian, you will get the bonus of seeing how scriptures and suggested prayers support your efforts. This a great book!!

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.

This book can either be helpful or harmful. It can be helpful if you suffer from "rational" anxiety. That is fear of something that is or may be actually true. Stress caused by excessive work demands, symptoms of a possibly serious illness, loss of a job, etc. for example. The suggestions in this book can be quite helpful for these cases. It is basically sound psychology and theology as applied to anxiety of this sort.

Unfortunately many sources of anxiety are irrational in nature. We know that are fears are not grounded in reality or at least the reality is not nearly bad enough to warrant the level of anxiety we experience. Someone with generalized anxiety disorder may even have no identifiable object for the fear. The author realizes this, but yet proposes the same approach as if the fear had a real basis. Attempts to beat anxiety by these methods is often non-productive and leaves the sufferer more hopeless and self-blaming than before. It is certainly good practice to try to regain a rational outlook when faced with an irrational fear. And this often works for specific phobias, the one form of irrational fear that the author addresses with the well-known cognative therapy technique or desensitization. But generally the author doesn't offer a lot on how to treat anxiety when it is not associated with some tangible situation.

The book is basically a collection of case studies where some coping method was helpful, and the reader is basically instructed to go through trying them all. This can be discouraging and frustrating. If you have trouble in this area and buy this book, my advice is to check out the opening case in each chapter to see if it really describes your case. If it does, then that chapter may have something useful to you. If not, just skip it.

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.

I was extremely blessed by this book. It has two parts: what is anxiety, and how to climb out of it. The what part gives a clear description of what anxiety looks like. As one in healing, I found great comfort knowing that this is normal. I am not alone. The second part looks at different areas of anxiety and seeks to give ways to heal from it. Though not all chapters will apply directly to each person, the chapters are all well written and give many personal accounts that give clear description. Each chapter ends with an activity to been done on your own time. Usually it involves prayer, thought, and writing some things down. This is the real meat of the book and if done will give you a great starting point for healing. I can't recommend this book strong enough because of how it integrates knowledge (what is anxiety, what causes it) with action (activities, good questions, making a plan,etc)
