Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The book explains clearly the sources of anxiety as being both the cognitive mind and the ancient part of our brains called the amygdala. It explains that rewiring your brain - employing our modern understanding of neuroplasticity - can change even the apparently autonomic responses of the amygdala as well as our cognitive responses. And most importantly, it explains how it can be done.

Who was your favorite character and why?

What does Susannah Mars bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

This is an expressive and sensitive read.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

A bit long and involved for that - best heard a couple of chapters at a time.
