If you could sum up Rewire Your Anxious Brain in three words, what would they be?

Informative, inspiring, easy-to-follow

It is enlightening and fascinating to have a deeper look on what cause anxiety. The book explains in details on how amygdala and cortex cause anxiety, worries, fears, and compulsive disorders - it feels like the book gives you a tour of your brain to see how it reacts when it is experiencing anxiety. The solutions provided in this book are very useful and effective in reducing anxiety.

What did you like best about this story?

The breathing and relaxation exercises in chapter 6 are surprisingly useful. I play it every night when we are ready for bed. My husband and son fall into sleep right away. : )

What about Susannah Mars’s performance did you like?

Her voice is clear and "authoritative" and makes you feel you can trust her.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It makes me feel that I can conquer fear and anxiety

Why do naturally talented people frequently fail to reach their potential while other far less gifted individuals go on to achieve amazing things? The secret to outstanding achievement is not talent but a passionate persistence. In other words, grit. MacArthur Genius Award-winning psychologist Angela Duckworth shares fascinating new revelations about who succeeds in life and why.
