Are you truly in danger or has your brain simply "tricked" you into thinking you are? In The Worry Trick, psychologist and anxiety expert David Carbonell shows how anxiety hijacks the brain and offers effective techniques to help you break the cycle of worry, once and for all. Anxiety is a powerful force. It makes us question ourselves and our decisions, causes us to worry about the future, and fills our days with dread and emotional turbulence.

Unhelpful. Actually made me worry more! The book provides an outline of various techniques to minimise worrying, but the author’s obvious total lack of personal experience in this area meant the book was written with a complete lack of empathy & understanding. I would recommend that anyone suffering from anxiety steer well clear of this book!
