This is a very good book covering the whole spectrum of stress and anxiety from moderate to severe symptoms. The title is a little misleading in that the authors do not claim to cure stress and anxiety but how to manage it. It has a chapter on the nuts and bolts so that you know what's going on inside your body physiologically with stress and anxiety. I found that very interesting. Then several chapters follow dealing with ideas on how to deal physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually w ...more

This book has some good reminders of not expecting more from yourself than is fair, of avoiding negative self talk and helps to move forward. However it seems to lack the big punch I would have liked, it's small and not developed as deeply as I would have liked. I think for me I prefer getting my answers from reading the scriptures but this is a good guide to helping find those answers through additional thought process.

This is a very informative book. I did have a hard time getting through it due to the books I read are my escape. This was far from an escape. It puts anxiety and stress right out there in your face! Now that have panic attacks, there I said it, this book taught me how to manage it effectively and I learned more about my anxiety that I didn't know. This is not a fix it book but how to manage it in everyday life.

I really liked how this book talked about the physiological reasons behind anxiety and depression. I also learned a lot of new things about dealing with anxiety. It's more clinical than a feel-good, church book. But it's still short and easy to take in. Not that we're wacko, or anything, but if you're a blood relative, I'd recommend reading it. lol

For me this was a fantastic book. I always love self help especially those with ways to help be still and better understand things! I got it on clearance at Deseret Book a few weeks ago. Paul is going to read it next.
