Publisher's Summary

Do you ever wonder what is happening inside your brain when you feel anxious, panicked, and worried? In Rewire Your Anxious Brain, psychologist Catherine Pittman and author Elizabeth Karle offer a unique, evidence-based solution to overcoming anxiety, based in cutting-edge neuroscience and research.

In this audiobook you will learn how the amygdala and cortex (both important parts of the brain) are essential players in the neuropsychology of anxiety. The amygdala acts as a primal response, and oftentimes, when this part of the brain processes fear, you may not even understand why you are afraid. By comparison the cortex is the center of worry - that is, obsessing, ruminating, and dwelling on things that may or may not happen.

Pittman and Karle offer simple, specific examples of how to manage fear by tapping in to both of these pathways in the brain. As you listen, you'll gain a greater understanding of how anxiety is created in the brain, and as a result you will feel empowered and motivated to overcome it.

The brain is a powerful tool, and the more you work to change the way you respond to fear, the more resilient you will become. Using the practical self-assessments and proven-effective techniques in this book, you will learn to literally "rewire" the brain processes that lie at the root of your fears.

    "Disappointing"

    Apart from discovering anxiety can be produced by two parts of the brain, I did not gain much by listening to this book. A great deal of time is dedicated to explaining this simple fact and much of the information is needlessly repetitive. The suggested techniques to combat anxiety are disappointing and boil down to breathing and muscle exercises - nothing particularly innovative or new and similar exercises readily available on YouTube. Certainly not the 'rewiring' processes implied by the title of the book.

    "Very helpful!"

    I've been listening to this book as well as seeking CBT. I found this book incredibly helpful and it has helped me to understand how my brain works and that I CAN change my brain and rewire it. It is very good and I would recommend this to anyone suffering with anxiety (it even helps you identify what sort you have).

    Excellent!

    "Very helpful!"

    I've suffered from bad anxiety for years and this book has really changed the way I approach situations that once made me panic.

    Well worth a listen if your suffering from the same kind of daily torment!

    "I fear the terrible narration halted my listening."

    This book may have been credible. I will never know I fear because the narration was so poor that I simply could not abide to listen to another word.

    "repetitive and nothing new "

    The amount of repetition becomes annoying. it's a poor version of the chimp paradox. I would not recommend.

    "Very good insight into how to control anxiety"

    Anxiety and what happens in the brain is explained in a very easy to understand manner. One of the best books I've read (or listened to)in a long time.

    "good at mapping personal anxieities"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rewire Your Anxious Brain?

    the checklists on certain types of anxiety


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought it was functional. It didn't really stand out one way or the other.


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

    Not really. Some aspects actually required you to go away and think about it.


    Any additional comments?

    I thought this was a very good introduction into the physical and mental aspects of anxiety. It helps identify any potential signs of anxiety too. In terms of dealing with it it's only scratching the surface but I guess it's possible to use this to dig deeper into the subject.
