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.

Ambushed

I felt let down after religion and the power of prayer was introduced into the subject. I lost my mojo for the book after this and regretted choosing it. Clearly, some people will like the subject, but it's not for me.

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.

dull narration

Shame it's not narrated by the mancunian author. The dried up, old bbc style ruins listening.

For people who are worried about their worrying.

An absolutely amazing book for people who worry a lot or who want to know why we worry and how to quit a lot of unhealthy worrying.
