Publisher's Summary

We all know what is healthy to think and what is not, much like we know that eating an apple is better than gorging on donuts. But once we start thinking anxious thoughts, it is tough to move from disaster to reality. Our brain can ruin our day.

The road map to happiness can be found in Freeing Yourself from Anxiety. Unlike most guides, Dr. Tamar Chansky’s book explains that the solution is not positive thinking but possible thinking. Armed with her strategies, listeners can achieve accurate perceptions of their lives that can liberate them from fear and perfectionism.

For the estimated 25 percent of Americans who have an anxiety problem, Freeing Yourself from Anxiety provides the step-by-step tools for living stress-free, without medications.

TAMAR E. CHANSKY, PHD is a clinical child psychologist, founder and director of the Children’s Center for OCD and Anxiety, and the author of Freeing Your Child from Anxiety. She lives with her husband and two daughters in Philadelphia.

Great book for anxiety

Great strategies with many examples on managing stress and anxiety. Straightforward and not too technical. I have listened to it in full twice. Recommended

Not for me

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

No. Very long and sterile.

Has Freeing Yourself from Anxiety put you off other books in this genre?

No. There are many other books I have found interesting and helpful.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

Seems very clinical and sterile. I forced myself to keep listening and even then I couldn't finish it,

Do you think Freeing Yourself from Anxiety needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No I think the 10 hours of audio is by far enough.

Sound advice and logical!

I'd reccommend for anyone caught up in their own worry cycle. This book offers clear steps you can try to free yourself from worry. Its not about ignoring worry...but rewriting the script you own to counter what your brain is wired to do. Based in science.

Can't recommend highly enough

I have listened to this book over and over. I even purchased the print version so that I could refer to the exercises quickly. It's a great help to people who struggle with worry and anxiety.
