I bought this audiobook yesterday and have listened to it twice already. It is a good effective self help guide to dealing with worry. The narrator is good. I particularly like the idea of self help audiobooks. I find it a very good format for these types of books. If you have a problem with worrying i would highly recomend this book.
I am being bullied at work, in a public sector college, and I'm a political outcast after questioning management. My worry levels have been affecting my sleep, my every waking thought and have made my life a misery of late. This audio was the friend with practical, real advice and techniques that coached me all weekend to a healthier outlook and a future that doesn't have to include putting up with worrying 24//7. It's all very good knowing why things happen but those of us in dire stress situations, where worry is eroding every aspect of life, need simple steps to say - you're not going mad, you are not alone, you can do something about this...this is how to do it and life can go on.I would advise anyone reading this who feels the pressure of a broken relationship, work environments which are toxic etc. to try this book. I wanted help NOW and this book gave it to me. I feel relieved and back in control of my life. I never write reviews - but I know others are out there searching for relief from feeling so weighed down by life and worry.
