Publisher's Summary

Hardcore Self Help: F--k Anxiety is for those of us who find the prospect of reading a traditional self-help book to be way too boring. How are you supposed to make positive changes in your life if the book itself feels like a chore? This audiobook is definitely not a chore.

In Hardcore Self Help: F--k Anxiety, I talk to you like a friend. There is lots of swearing and humor but also loads of helpful and actionable information. You learn about anxiety and how to find the weapons within yourself to slay it for good.

The audiobook is performed and recorded by me, so you get every intended inflection!

    No


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

    Disappointment that I used one of my Audible credits to listen to swearing and slang that was too "young minded" for my 54 year old brain. There was a bit of good information here but it wasn't presented in a way that I could relate to.

    "Don't really rate this."

    The narrator / authors delivery was good and the start of this book made me giggle a bit but from there it just got a bit boring. I don't know what I was expecting, I guess a book to drag me out the anxiety I've been feeling.. And to maybe pull me out of it a bit. But it didn't meet my expectations and it let me feeling a bit low. Wouldn't recommend this book. It doesn't even tell you anything you don't already know. Much better books out there. Shame.

    "Good but too short."

    Enjoyed this but felt it was too broad and could have gone into more detail in places. Liked the tone and general idea of a less touchy feely book on anxiety.

    Story
    "Can't praise it enough! Down-to-earth life saver!"

    I've suffered from long term PTSD, Generalised Anxiety and Social Anxiety for years and have only recently had the balls to admit it, get help and try to claw my way out. Duff made me feel so comfortable and at ease whilst he was explaining exactly how my mind and body works; I didn't feel so "alone" in it anymore with his encouragement (not just that wishy washy inspirational quotes crap). It felt like talking to a very understanding, relatable friend (who really knows their stuff too of course); rather than the kind of stuff you usually get with self help books that tends to feel a bit too much like you're listening to a professor who's only studied the concepts, but never actually felt what you're going through. The breathing and relaxation technique at the end has been amazing for me and I have already used it twice to help me get out of panic attack state. It's not oberwhelmingly in-depth (which I liked), but it's definitely a great place to start for anyone struggling to make that first step like I was. I'm also suffering from Depression and depersonalisation, so have already purchased his "Fuck Depression" audiobook too and I'll also be getting anything else he's done that would help fix my bitch of a brain. I never thought it was possible to look forward to "therapy", but I just want to be myself again and this helped me go in a direction I thought had ceased to exist anymore. Thank you so much Duff! (If you read these) You're awesome man! :')

    I listened to this all in one go.

    Brilliant listen.

    What did you like most about Hardcore Self Help: F--k Anxiety?

    It actually taught me a few tips and tricks to help my anxiety issues. I've been to therapy before and not received any advice as good as in this audiobook.


    Have you listened to any of Robert Duff’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    "It's ok. But not awesome."

    I like the author who's also the reader. I think this book is geared towards the younger generation. I bought the book because of the title but I was expecting a little bit more than I got. I think it's a great read if this is the first time you are reading about anxiety.

    "Waste of time"

    Although the author does a very good job of narrating his book and his ideas and it was entertaining to listen to the subject matter is pointless and I got absolutely nothing from this. I would not recommend this to anyone

    "I Am Not Offended By Offensive Language..."

    when it is used with effect, but this is gratuitous and stupid. The author tries to make up for the very ordinary approach to anxiety treatment (nothing new here) with "talking like a normal person" ("normal" if you use empty vulgarity every other word) and trying to seem hip and cool and identifiable. (The tone pretty much runs like this: "You don't need some egghead telling you about those fancy neurotransmitters when I can make it seem much more relatable by referring to your brain as a "douche."--Please!) It's not so much anxiety as the reader here that ends up feeling....well,,,

    "Great Read!"

    it was funny, unique, and very informative. Unfortunately it was also very short, and Bob Duff isn't the best narrator (He lacks emotion in his voice). Again, not a bad book, in fact one of my favorites, that I have read so far on the subject, however I do wish it were longer

    I love it! This is very helpful for amateur psychologists like me. His work is easy to grasp albeit from some distraction from his swearing. But over all, I like it!

    "SUPER funny AND really helpful too!"

    I accidentally purchased this book on anxiety (I meant to buy his book on depression) and HOLY COW! Perfect easy listen that ACTUALLY HELPS with practical things to try in my life, that I can actually begin to do.

    I'm so glad I took the time to listen! It brought me many LOL moments (which was good medicine right there alone!) and also I've already used a could of the techniques without even having to do much work. Easy start to climbing out of the pit of anxiety and depression.
    THANKS, Duff the psych! Really helpful! Life changing, I'd say!
