Returned this

I don't think the book translates well into an audio book. It may be better in paper. also, the narrator's voice made the book come across as, 'listen with mother'...The voice is crystal clear and well articulated but for me didn't work.

Compelling reading

I found it worth listening to twice and have recommended it to others. It made so much sense.

Painful

It is painful to listen to and feels condescending. I just couldn't make it through and found the chimp paradox a more useful read.

Great, thorough, balanced advice!

If you or someone you know experiences anxiety, you’ll see that the examples given and stories told are authentic. The advice and exercises are clear, easy to follow and are presented with realistic expectations for results. I feel better for listening (narration was perfect!) and look forward to re-listening and using this as an ongoing resource.

Well worth your time!!

If your new to CBT this is a great place to start and was a good refresher for myself. Do yourself the favour and have the courage to get the tools you need to be successful.
