There's a new and faster way of anxiety relief, but few have ever heard it. Most people are advised to either just "manage" their anxiety or medicate it away.

Based on hard science and over 10 years of helping people who suffer from anxiety, Barry McDonagh shares his most effective technique in this new book. The DARE technique can be used by everyone, regardless of age or background, to live lives free from anxiety or panic attacks.
In this step-by-step guide, you will discover how to:

There are lots of self help books out there for anxiety so what makes this different and the answer is simply that this one works.
Don't let the authors accent turn you off because you will get used to it.
The tips it offers really work as long as you are willing to put in the effort.
Yes. It is an interesting way of dealing with anxiety and the author/narrator has a very reassuring feel.
It was a 'grab em by the balls' technique of handling anxiety...refreshing!
Calm, reassuring and appears genuine.
Great ideas to help with anxiety. Once I started the dare response, my anxiety found it hard to show itself. Definitely worth reading at least once, if not twice.
Everything that was said in this book was right on the mark. He described the different anxieties we could be dealing with, but you didn't ever get the skills to resolve them. I was very surprised when I realized that was all there was. Up until that time I was totally into it.
I've struggled with anxiety of various sorts. This book covered all possible scenarios fully, including one that many doctors have not been able to address related to needing to empty my bladder when stressed. The DARE response has helped me tremendously in such a short period of time. I highly recommend!
Gives a person confidence that he or she can live a better life when they have anxiety.
"A truly transformative book"
I struggled for a long time with anxiety and panic attacks and always felt like something was happening that was completely out of my control. I started reading the works of Claire Weekes and began to understand anxiety much better, and stop suffering from it. I was skeptical of this book because I thought it would just be the same thing I read in Weekes' work just worded differently, but this book truly expands upon it and presents things in detail in an interesting and compassionate way. I would say Weekes' works got me understanding anxiety and panic attacks with my mind, but using the DARE response and the other ideas in this book has started me on the path to understanding anxiety and panic with my heart. This may sound corny if you haven't read the book, but trust me, if an anxious cynic like myself has felt this is a transformative book and process, than it can work for anyone. Understanding and accepting anxiety is he key to living life again, and this book gives so many great ways to go about setting that acceptance and compassion in motion.
I loved this book! I will listen to it again and take notes. I loved the author's reading of it! There is work to be done, but I will work it 😊.
This is an extraordinary book!! So glad a family member recommended it.
As an anxiety sufferer this book was a gift. This is the first book I found to have everything I wanted and needed to hear. I'm not broken. I am and other anxiety sufferers are stronger than most. Thank you for helping me to see that there is a way out. And that I can and will be free to live the life I once had. Thank you!
"Was this supposed to help? Awful."
Sorry but i hated this. I WANTED to like this. I wanted it to help. But it really didn't. If you have ever read anything at all about anxiety then you will know exactly what is i this book. Sorry but hated it. Cliched nonsense. Waste of money
"A MUST if you suffer with anxiety..."
The author is reading the book and I love, love listening to him... very easy to listen to! This gave me actual things I can do to deal with my anxiety.
"Overall a good, educational book"
I myself do not suffer from Anxiety/panic attacks, but I thought this book would be helpful to me as a future therapist, which I believe it definitely will be. Overall I would recommend this book.
"Very helpful !"
I was amazed how most of my anxiety symptoms are in this book! There are time when Barry is describing something and I can relate. I think this book saved me from anxiety and how to welcome it and overcome it.
"I got bored pretty quickly"
I just found the content really dull. Maybe it was because i have heard it before many times or maybe it was the way it was written and narrated, but not really very interesting at all and certainly didn't help with my panic attacks.
"Severely lacking in good ideas or original content"
I had read EVERYTHING in this book before on the internet...for free.
Some of the tips were ok, but this is all very very cliched stuff which has been repeated countless times before.
Not worth the hype. This book is all about hype and marketing, which completely failed to deliver. All cliched dull advice which is available for free with a quick google search.
Not worth it at all. Disappointed.
Needs to be more realistic.
I would consider it.
The performance wasn't great but i always give people a second try.
This book (and the marketing that surrounds it!) promised a lot and for me, totally and utterly failed to deliver. None of the advice and tips felt realistic or anything i could use in my life. At times i felt talked down to and other times the advice felt silly. Very disappointed.
"Not for me."
Maybe some people will like this and given by the positive reviews some must, but for me this was not helpful at all. I think if you have never read anything at all on anxiety or panic attacks and this is a new thing then this might be the book for you. Otherwise I fear you may be hearing the same things again and again.
"go on....do it!!"
loved it. in fact, this is the second time I've listened. if you dare.....
I still get anxious now and then, that's human. what I have learned is how to stop fearing it.
This program is the only thing that has helped me since my first panic attack 17 years ago. I've tried everything so I was dubious about buying into another program. I am so glad I did 😃
"A clear message with good guidance"
I have listened to anxiety books before and have had CBT, I recently had a bad setback after going on holiday which threw me off guard and I was distraught, I thought I'd give DARE a go and it's really great. Similar messages as others but so good to hear the author writing from experience and some really key messages put across. Thank you, it's reassuring and I need to keep practicing, best wishes to everyone.
time to practice the suggestions provided. thank you Barry for your work in contributing DARE to the world of anxiety.
2 days in and my anxiety is already going away, a must have! thank you
"honest, thorough and inspiring "
Amazingly helpful so far. I'm looking forward to putting this method to practice some more.
