Publisher's Summary

Worry, stress, anxiety - whichever label you prefer to use - can have consequences that impact not only our lives, but the lives of others around us. When we worry it's like the engine of our mind is constantly being revved up. It doesn't allow us time to switch off and rest. It tires us out. And when we're tired we are less likely to think straight. And when we're not thinking straight it's easy to make stupid mistakes and confuse priorities...But relax. There is a way forward.

In How Not to Worry Paul McGee shows us that there is a way to tackle life's challenges in a calmer and more considered way. It is possible to use a certain degree of worry and anxiety to spur us on towards positive, constructive action, and then leave the rest behind. With down to earth, real life advice, How Not to Worry helps us understand why worrying is such a big deal and the reasons for it, exposing the behavioural traps we fall into when faced with challenges. It then helps us to move on with tools and ideas to deal with our worries in a more constructive way.

Paul McGee is one of Europe's leading motivational speakers and coaches, combining practical strategies with both inspiration and realism. He has spoken in 31 countries to date and is the author of several books, including the bestselling Self-Confidence and S.U.M.O. (Shut Up, Move On).

Building on his academic background in behavioural and social psychology, Paul is also a trained counsellor, a performance coach and a Fellow of the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.

    "Easy to understand"
    What made the experience of listening to How Not to Worry the most enjoyable?

    Great narrator, quite humourous in places and the concept of the book is easy to understand.


    Would you recommend How Not to Worry to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend it to someone who hasn't read a great deal on this subject but I think it is a bit too simplistic if you are more experienced in this field and like more depth in the material.


    What does Glen McCready bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Again, his delivery is quite droll and his voice has got a nice tone.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I didn't, but I could have done because it was easy and enjoyable.


    Any additional comments?

    There are some interesting anecdotes used as examples. Listening to it is a litte bit like reading good quality advice columns.

    I liked the hammock moments; thinking how to apply information learnt.


    What three words best describe Glen McCready’s performance?

    Ok.

    Worth listening to. Would have preferred the author's voice.

    "More than what I expected"

    Gave me insights on how to reduce the daily stress level and not to get anxious for no reason. A good book to realise the small things that make you stressed at the end of the day or in long term period. Good to realise those so that you can take the control of your mood

    "Continuing to be exceptional at imperfection."

    An enjoyable lite read with subtle humour to help carry the message that our imperfections are not necessarily a bad thing.

    Story
    "Informative and funny"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    If you are worried about whether or not it is worth purchasing this book / audiobook then you are in the right place. After all you're here because you know you worry too much and presumably want to do something to improve this.
    Paul McGee illuminates areas of worry that we can all relate to in some manner and helps us understand why it is we need not worry about such things. The book is written and also narrated in a very warm hearted manner, by which I mean it is as if you were having a discussion with a friend. He illustrates personal experiences and examples relevant to life's worries in a humorous manner that makes the book a lot easier to read / listen to.
    There are parts to this book that may seem obvious to some but sometimes we need to be told the obvious things again so that we realise we need to actually do these things. Besides if the obvious was not covered then he wouldn't really be covering everything.
    Aside from this the things he suggests can be simple yet very helpful and thought provoking.


    Any additional comments?

    As a big worrier I would certainly recommend reading / listening to this book. I for one will be giving it a second listen to help it really sink into my head!
