Publisher's Summary

There's a new and faster way of anxiety relief, but few have ever heard it. Most people are advised to either just "manage" their anxiety or medicate it away.

If you're tired of just managing your anxiety and want a powerful natural solution, then apply the DARE technique, as explained in Barry McDonagh's latest book.

Based on hard science and over 10 years of helping people who suffer from anxiety, Barry McDonagh shares his most effective technique in this new book. The DARE technique can be used by everyone, regardless of age or background, to live lives free from anxiety or panic attacks.

In this step-by-step guide, you will discover how to:

  • Stop panic attacks and end feelings of general anxiety
  • Face any anxious situation you've been avoiding (driving, flying, shopping, etc.)
  • Put an end to anxious or intrusive thoughts
  • Use the correct natural supplements to relieve anxiety
  • Boost your confidence and feel like your old self again
  • Fall asleep faster and with less anxiety each night
  • Live a more bold and adventurous life again

    "I got bored pretty quickly"
    How could the performance have been better?

    I just found the content really dull. Maybe it was because i have heard it before many times or maybe it was the way it was written and narrated, but not really very interesting at all and certainly didn't help with my panic attacks.

    "Severely lacking in good ideas or original content"
    What disappointed you about Dare?

    I had read EVERYTHING in this book before on the internet...for free.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some of the tips were ok, but this is all very very cliched stuff which has been repeated countless times before.


    Any additional comments?

    Not worth the hype. This book is all about hype and marketing, which completely failed to deliver. All cliched dull advice which is available for free with a quick google search.

    Not worth it at all. Disappointed.

    "Very disappointed!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Needs to be more realistic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Barry McDonagh again?

    I would consider it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Barry McDonagh’s performances?

    The performance wasn't great but i always give people a second try.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    This book (and the marketing that surrounds it!) promised a lot and for me, totally and utterly failed to deliver. None of the advice and tips felt realistic or anything i could use in my life. At times i felt talked down to and other times the advice felt silly. Very disappointed.

    "Not for me."
    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Maybe some people will like this and given by the positive reviews some must, but for me this was not helpful at all. I think if you have never read anything at all on anxiety or panic attacks and this is a new thing then this might be the book for you. Otherwise I fear you may be hearing the same things again and again.

    "A clear message with good guidance"

    I have listened to anxiety books before and have had CBT, I recently had a bad setback after going on holiday which threw me off guard and I was distraught, I thought I'd give DARE a go and it's really great. Similar messages as others but so good to hear the author writing from experience and some really key messages put across. Thank you, it's reassuring and I need to keep practicing, best wishes to everyone.

    "fantastic"

    Despite the successful technique described by this book to overcome anxiety,only listening to the book is very helpful in this matter. I can't find the words to thank the author.

    "Not complete"

    Everything that was said in this book was right on the mark. He described the different anxieties we could be dealing with, but you didn't ever get the skills to resolve them. I was very surprised when I realized that was all there was. Up until that time I was totally into it.

    As an anxiety sufferer this book was a gift. This is the first book I found to have everything I wanted and needed to hear. I'm not broken. I am and other anxiety sufferers are stronger than most. Thank you for helping me to see that there is a way out. And that I can and will be free to live the life I once had. Thank you!

    Any additional comments?

    Sorry but i hated this. I WANTED to like this. I wanted it to help. But it really didn't. If you have ever read anything at all about anxiety then you will know exactly what is i this book. Sorry but hated it. Cliched nonsense. Waste of money

    I loved this book! I will listen to it again and take notes. I loved the author's reading of it! There is work to be done, but I will work it 😊.
    This is an extraordinary book!! So glad a family member recommended it.

    "Rehashed, but relevant"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Only if said friend hadn't read a single self-help book on the topic of anxiety. Otherwise, this book would be incredibly pointless.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The tips toward the end of the book; they outweigh everything said in the earlier portion of the book. I'd go so far as to say the DARE response itself is pointless when compared to them.


    Which character – as performed by Barry McDonagh – was your favorite?

    He played himself quite well, I'd imagine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    General indifference throughout the majority of this spiel, with some intermittent depression about the dullness of the DARE response. The health tips, however, evened things out.


    Any additional comments?

    Chapter 15 brought this book up from 1-2 stars to 3, for me. Most of this book is a rehashed version of ACT / MBCT (and even admits to this), but the 'supercharge' tips redeemed itself somewhat.

    Buy this book, but skip to chapter 15, unless you know nothing about mindfulness / ACT / MBCT.

    "Freedom"

    This is the most thorough resource I have found. I have sought help through professional counseling and other anxiety programs. By far Barry McDonagh reveals in great detail what the root of anxiety is and how to treat it successfully. Many programs deal with the symptoms of anxiety but Barry reveals what the true cause is. I would recommend this book to anyone and everyone.

    "Fantastic book"

    I purchased this book on Audio format.
    I listened to the whole book within two days.
    I will go back over the chapters that I think will be helpful to me. That's most of them.
    I found I am starting to recover from anxiety issues already just by listening to the book.
    But will most definitely apply the Dare response.
    Brilliant.
