Publisher's Summary

Expert advice from a neurotic shrink who's lived with it all his life.

Consultant psychiatrist Dr Mark Cross knows a lot about anxiety. Many of his patients experience anxiety, which is hardly surprising, because anxiety is the most common mental-health condition in Australia, affecting up to one in four people at some point in their lives. But Mark also knows about anxiety from another perspective, because he too has suffered from it all his life.  

In this audiobook, the co-author of Changing Minds, who featured in the ABC TV series of the same name, demystifies anxiety in his trademark warm and friendly style.   

For people with anxiety, their families and friends, the audiobook explores: types of anxiety; causes and common triggers; medical, therapy-based and natural treatments; the effect of anxiety at each life stage; anxiety in the workplace; navigating the health systems; and much more.  

Along the way, Mark shares his own experiences as well as stories from others who have not only survived but thrived.

Not what I expected

I really appreciated the author being frank and direct about his life and struggles. his knowledge and personal anecdotes were heartfelt. I wanted a book which have more instruction and suggestions re managing and identifying anxiety. To that end I found the first part of the book great. After that, less so.
