Publisher's Summary

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.

If you're tired of just managing your anxiety and want a powerful natural solution, then apply the DARE technique, as explained in Barry McDonagh's latest book.

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:

  • Stop panic attacks and end feelings of general anxiety
  • Face any anxious situation you've been avoiding (driving, flying, shopping, etc.)
  • Put an end to anxious or intrusive thoughts
  • Use the correct natural supplements to relieve anxiety
  • Boost your confidence and feel like your old self again
  • Fall asleep faster and with less anxiety each night
  • Live a more bold and adventurous life again

    "You must read this book"

    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.

    "Helpful"

    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.

    "Not complete"

    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.

    "Beyond amazing to say the least!!!"

    If you just think you might have anxiety or if you have full blown panic attacks on a regular basis with high anxiety this book is all you'll need! I have no words to express how amazing this book is. Fix your anxiety today, don't wait. Every second you don't have the pages open is more time wasted living with anxiety. Before you know it you will be free after reading this beyond amazing book!!!!! Thank You Barry McDonagh you saved my life.

    "Not helpful for me. "

    The author makes a lot of generalizations about anxiety, however none of them seem to apply to me at all. The strategies don't seem applicable in the least. I don't have panic attacks. I'm not worried I'm going to lose control. I don't have dark unexplainable thoughts that scare me. I don't have unusual bodily sensations that frighten me. I'm anxious about my life and the future; generally about entirely likely, and if not, at least plausible things. I tried applying the strategies in the book anyways, and found they were almost totally unhelpful. What temporary relief that may have occurred seems to have simply been from the distraction trying. I think the book would be helpful for someone who suffers panic attacks, or has and wild unrealistic, or otherwise paralyzing anxiety.

    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!

    This book changed my life. I no longer suffer from debilitating panic attacks and anxiety. I had massive panic attacks for 12 years, no more. The D.A.R.E. strategy used in this book works. I highly recommend it!

    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

    "Very disappointed!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Needs to be more realistic.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Barry McDonagh again?

    I would consider it.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Barry McDonagh’s performances?

    The performance wasn't great but i always give people a second try.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    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."
    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    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.

    How could the performance have been better?

    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.

    What disappointed you about Dare?

    I had read EVERYTHING in this book before on the internet...for free.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Some of the tips were ok, but this is all very very cliched stuff which has been repeated countless times before.


    Any additional comments?

    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.<br/><br/>Not worth it at all. Disappointed.

    "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.
