Confessions of a Control Freak starts by giving us seven signs of a control freak:

• nagging others
• trying to orchestrate outcomes
• butting into others’ affairs
• worrying about things beyond your control
• feeling anxiety about the future
• never feeling peaceful
• needing everything to be in perfect order

While I recognise that I may have a tendency to display any or all of these signs, I don’t think I let these tendencies control me (although I could just be deluding myself).

The author of this book is very open and straightforward about the subject of control. It is her writing style that makes this book interesting and helpful.

Using the questions to judge yourself by, you find areas you need help on. Reading this book will show you how to work on those areas. You will delve into why you feel the need t

Short book that is packed with a punch. This is a book you want to keep and come back to. It is a great reminder to fully rely on God. As a mom, as a friend, as a wife; this is not always easy. This book is a nice mix of catching things we try to control even if you really don't think you are a control freak and helping us deal with those over-controlling people in our life. Thank you Priscilla.

Such a relevant book for me. As a mom of 10, I have more than enough opportunities to see my control-freak nature. This book helped me to put that into perspective, and has offered sound biblical advice to fix it. I recommend this book to all control freaks, and to all those that know a control freak.
