This book was incredibly well written and readable, not technical. This is great as you don’t want to feel like you’re reading a scholarly article. I found the book to be enlightening to help me understand my own anxiety and recognize some symptoms I didn’t realize were actually anxiety. Very helpful read that’s easy to understand.
This is a must-have resource to help one improve mental health, resiliency, and live a more full and happy life. It is full of great strategies, advice, and easy to implement ideas. This is one I'll return to again and again. Many thanks to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for the advanced copy of the book.
This book is divided in two parts. In the first part, the author talks about the origin of anxiety, how the brain is involved, and states the different disorders and personnalities related to anxiety. In the second part, she talks about what you can do about it, weather it's a precription treatment or complementary or alternative treatments, and gives a lot ot tools to help you cope with anxiety.
I prefered the second part to the first one (which was fairly theoretical, although easy to understand and important in the comprehension of the disorder). I will definitely refer to the different tools when I need them (and I am on my way to make myself a glitter jar right away!).
I received an advance review copy for free from NetGalley and DK, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
Overall I found this book accurate and helpful. I’ve had a high level of anxiety my whole life stemming from childhood abandonment and trauma. This book does an excellent job of explaining the “what and why” of anxiety in the first half and the “how to” of minimizing it in the second half.
This is a book I would recommend to anyone struggling with anxiety as a place to start and to get some good overall knowledge of this disorder and some effective tools to try. While I can’t say there was new information for me, it is helpful to have it all in one place. Thank you to NetGalley for an early copy of this comprehensive book. This is my unbiased review.
I’m so glad I read this book. First the cover grabbed me immediately. The whole book was extremely helpful. This author really understands anxiety.
This book was well written, thoughtful and sensitive about the subject/disorder of anxiety. The author does a great job defining what anxiety is and the earliest mention. I did like historical aspect of when anxiety was first mentioned and how it came to be. None of that was dull or boring information. I like learning about the history of disorders.
The second half of the book was mostly easy tips, tools and tricks to lessen anxiety. And the good news? All these are easy to do on your own, which I like and everyone dealing with anxiety needs. There were also some new tips and tools that were new that I have not heard of before and they make sense. Always have one person, not family, that you can talk to about your stresses.
Very much recommended for anxiety as a self-help tool. Not meant as cure or alternative option for professional help.
Thanks to Netgalley, Tracey Marks and DK Alpha for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
I'm really glad I got to read this book! It's such a good resource, especially for someone who is new to things like anxiety. I really liked how organized it was and how it didn't just give us medical resources (mainly helping us define things like prescriptions that are commonly used in what situations) but also just solutions we can try at home if our anxiety isn't serious enough where we need medical intervention. I feel like if I had a resource like this a few years back, I wouldn't have been so unprepared to talk to a psychiatrist
